Once Opal turned one month old, she had a series of exciting firsts. Or, one exciting first and a whole bunch of others that no one but her parents would notice. She started making tears and drool--things got a lot wetter around here this week. Her little baby acne ramped up, too. Despite that, she became even cuter if that's possible. She visited her Dad at work and had lunch in the shade of the Flatiron building like a NYC tourist, but didn't look up at all, like a NYC local. And...

...on April 8th, she smiled! For real.


A whole week ahead of developmental schedule, but we swear it happened. She hasn't had too many repeat performances, but we look forward to any she'll grace us with--we cried the first time and probably will again!
