My baby niece was asleep the other evening, she’d been asleep on my shoulder for about an hour. A noise began to wake her and I lowered her into a classic baby-holding position and began to rock her. She opened her eyes, looked at me, and gave me a soft and content smile. I leaned down to kiss her cheek and she softly smiled again and nestled her head into my arm. She continued to softly smile, looking intently into my eyes – this was a different smile than normal. She’s only four months old, but I promise it was a smile that said “I’m happy to be lying here in your arms, and I like it when you kiss my cheeks.” My heart was bursting and I am smitten with her.
