on something to make you smile for the next two days...

smiling babies make my soul melt into a puddle.

My nephew, Landon - now twelve days old. Smiling, after his bath this afternoon.

Um, cutest baby ever? I think so. I was so incredibly glad I was able to capture this moment with a photo - all week I've been hoping to get an adorable baby smile on camera. But, apparently newborn babies don't like to smile on cue. (Who would've thought?) This photo makes my soul melt into a puddle of happiness, though. Seriously.

I caaannn't stooooppp lllooookkkinggg attt itttttt. The cuteness is unbearable.

(If any of you guys want to print this out and put it on your fridge, I totally won't judge you. Squishy babies! Ahhh! I love it!)

  26. A-freakin'-dorable! I had no idea that babies could smile that early in their life!

    And I totally feel ya about not being ready yet. Even though I'm married and it wouldn't be earth-shattering to everyone else, it's definitely something I want to take my time with.

    Travel home safely!
