I DO have a funny guy!
Last night, Michael had his homework on the sidetable in the dining room. He kept walking back and forth from the dining room table to the table that had his homework. The table that had his homework was behind Brady in his highchair. Michael would be talking and Brady would try to look up, over his seat, to see his big brother. Michael walked back and forth, with Brady's eyes set on him each time Michael was next to him. At one point, Michael stood next to Brady and Brady started talking to him..... then smiled!!
This was a purposeful smile, not some gas thing or chewing the inside of his mouth thing. This was witnessed by me, his father and his brother. Then... he did it again! By the time I raced back with the camera, he was all done. We kept encouraging him, "Brady! Brady!" No chance. He kept his eyes on Michael and looked at us like we were crazy. :)
So, needless to say, Angela was right - December 7. He hasn't done it again... but I finally feel it is not too far off where he'll be smiling all the time. And it will probably always be tied to Michael in some way, as that boy makes me smile too.
I think I will now put Brady's name on the William's Syndrome Foundation site with the notation that he didn't smile until 14 months so other mothers don't go crazy like me... although I have lived here (in crazyville) for a while and know my neighbors well. (haha) I remember feeling a little relieved when I read one baby didn't smile until he was 9 months.. of course, then that came and went and here we still were. Not anymore though! Yahoo! :)
