This is known to be J’s first picture while he’s smiling, even though he’s less than 36 hours old here. So I know in my head that it’s not a social smile and instead is actually probably gas.
But my heart says smile–so we’ll go with that.
He didn’t give a real smile until he was about 2 months old. And while these reflex smiles are sweet, the first real social smile your child gives you–the one where he locks eyes with you and smiles in response to the silly noises you’re making at him–will make you a goner.
