2 months, 1 week : starts smiling

Lil General started smiling which is a big change from his expressionless teeny weeny face. I'm excited now and the feeling of liking him is slowly setting in. Don't get me wrong but the instant affection between a mother and baby that all baby books talk about and the stuff you see in movies was totally absent. All that my mind revolved around was how much sleep I would get before he wakes up again ...Life has been very exhausting and depressing..it could have been worse if mom weren't around. With all the help we had around here after LG was born, it was easy. Now everyone's gone and managing LG between the two of us - mom and I is getting stressful and tiring. It is such a vicious circle of feeding, changing nappies, bathing and again feeding. it just seems never ending...but I am happy for at least he is smiling - feels like we have human being amongst us at last.
