First. (Well, First That Was Caught On Film. Baby Smiles Are Like Yetis In That They're Tough To Photograph And Look Stupid Creepy When Photoshopped.)

And just like that, we decided to keep him...
p.s. I have a new theory: the time it takes for your brain to forget the sharp-edged horror of pregnancy and childbirth perfectly coincides with the time it takes for your baby to decide to smile at you. Coinky-dink? I think not. That there is a Darwinian smile.

p.p.s. I mean, just look at that gummy smile! If this were one of those annoying singing Hallmark cards it would coo when you opened it up. And maybe sing Damn It Feels Good to Be a Gangsta, I don't know.

p.p.p.s. But I am not having another baby. Ever.

It's all about that face. That smile could sucker anyone. He's beautiful (and I'm glad you decided to keep him).

But just look at that face - anyone would be suckered in by that smile. He's beautiful (and I'm glad that you've decided to keep him).

Oh my gosh, he isn't even mine and I could totally smooch that sweet face. But I'm with you, pregnancy is for the birds, yo. (And by birds I don't mean chicks, I mean actual birds).

Mazel tov!

He's bee-oo-tiful. And he is probably very glad you decided to keep him, too. Congratulations!
