My babycentre update told me that this is the week when Pickle would finally reward my patience and perseverance with a glorious toothless smile. Unfortunately they forgot to send him the memo about the same.
Don’t get me wrong… raising a child is exhilarating as it is exhausting and rewarding as it is repetitive (feed – burp – change – sleep … and the cycle continues on an infinite loop… )… but there are these small things you tend to look forward to , just to get some kind of a feedback that your child loves you… ok… at least recognises you!
Well… Pickle hasn’t directed any smile at me… however, yesterday he stared at the blank white wall and actually smiled along with a gurgle and a real”coo”. So now I am competing with a blank white wall!!! Beat that!!!
