Indulge me.

I know babies don’t smile until about they’re at least a month old. It took six weeks for Aisha to finally give up her poker face (and give me some reward for my efforts). Calista was exactly one month old when I saw her first smile, but Brioni definitely did smile earlier. After today, I’m sure Delaney’s an early smiler too.

David’s seen her smile, and the girls have sworn that she’s smiled at them. (My silent opinion has always been “wind”.) However, today, Aisha was helping Dell to clap along in time to the music, and I saw Dell’s face change.

Of course, these fleeting moments are really hard to capture with a camera. Was I successful? Can you see the smile?

I'm sure you can see a bit of her smile in this photo.

Or in this one.

Aisha likes to whisper "secrets"into Dell's ear, like: "Everyone loves you."
