#5 Micaela at one week
She was just 7 days old, three days home from the hospital. She was still wrinkly she was so new. Like many newborn, she was fussy and didn't want to sleep. We tried everything and were up to taking turns holding her. Greg came into the nursery to help me and he flipped on the music box on her dresser. It played "In Munich, there is a haufbrau haus" (apparently it's a well-known song you hear in Germany at beer drinking events).
Well, IMMEDIATELY Micael burst into smiles. The music would go off and the frowns would return. This went on for 10-15 minutes. It was no fluke. She loves music! So we took several pictures of her first smiles.
Even then, her powerful dimples were evident. Both of her grandmothers have one dimple, so I like to think she got one from each of them.
