The whole week of Christmas I kept telling Joash that what Mom really wanted for Christmas was for him to sleep through the night and a smile. We knew that he was so close to smiling and I was pretty sure that I had caught a few smiles, but nothing for sure.
Well Christmas day I went to pick up Joash from nursery. It was the first time he had woken up in nursery and as soon as he was in my arms, he smiled. There was no doubt about this one. Alas, the smiles are still fleeting and impossible to catch in a picture, but they are coming.
As for sleeping though the night, we are getting there. two nights ago, he had a stretch from 10:30-5:30. Last night he went from midnight to 5:30. So it is getting better and the extra sleep is very nice.
