She was smiling beore. But not much, and they were those sort of wandering random baby smiles. Then suddenly today, like a switch turned on: smiles! And smiles at us. And more vocalization, too -- she was sort of quiet before. Now we're getting lots of those "aaah"s and trilling sounds.
Rushed to finish the yard work today, because snow is expected the day after tomorrow. Finished painting the new wall in the morning; the oven guy came in the afternoon and hooked up the wood-burning oven. I'm looking at it right now. We won't discuss how much it cost. It's nice. It's the last major change to the house for the next little while. (There are a lot of things we might do with this house, if we keep it. And if I get a job that lets us start putting money away again.)
Claudia ordered the winter tires for the car. Clear and cold tonight.
