My baby is two months today! 'The second month is baby's social debut - the coming out of her self' says Dr Sears' Baby Book (my baby bible by the way).
H2 does smile now, but she is a little stingy with her smiles. I remember H1 to be a big smiler by the time she hit two months. H2 however smiles quite a bit in her dreams. It's amazing how much of things she can do in her sleep that she is unable to do when she is awake. She laughs out loud, chuckles and sobs in her sleep. She can't do these while she is awake. It's such a mystery. We Buddhists believe that the baby is seeing things from her past life. (I mean, what can a two month old laugh about? She even chuckles like she is enjoying a good joke and sobs like she is really sad) Doctors say they are 'feel good' smiles or that they are just reflexes. I've heard Christians say that they are smiling with angels. I would really like to know why babies can do things in their sleep, that they can't do while awake. Any ideas?
While pondering on the above, take a look at H2 smiling in her sleep (The quality is quite bad cause it was taken from my phone). Enjoy!
