Saturday, 12 April 2014: One Year, One Week and Four Days Old.
Ayla has perfected a new kind of smile!
Until recently Ayla had only one smile, the “full-on, wide-mouthed toothy grin” that she flashed at every opportunity.
Now however Ayla has a new smile, which I refer to as her “sly” cheeky smile.
This new smile has added a whole new dimension to Ayla’s personality, and I can see I’m going to have my work cut out for me with not one, but TWO cheeky jokers in the house.
The new smile goes like this;
Ayla presses her lips together and lets them curl up ever so slightly at the edges so that sometimes it looks a little bit lopsided.
Then Ayla tilts her head down and away, glancing back with her eyes as if what I’m doing is funny but too dorky for her to smile at!
It actually makes me feel embarrassed and gets a laugh every time… How can a one year old know about sarcasm!
I almost expect Ayla to roll her eyes and say “ohhhh Muummmm!” with a subtle chuckle, but I guess there’s still plenty of time for that!
