This is day five of my babysitting journey with Kate. Things are going well. Though I had to deal with the first poop today. We got through it together. She sometimes smiles. I prefer to think she's enjoying my baby talk. A baby's smile is magic. We adults will do almost anything to see a baby smile. Smiles are free though. It is what separates us from the animals. It is a gift we can give one another. Give the gift of a smile today.
