Nothing is sweeter than a baby’s smile, especially when it appears unexpectedly. One tiny girl with Down Syndrome smiled for the first time, and her mother captured the moment on tape.
An 8-month-old infant was tummy time on a comfortable blanket with her adoptive mother when mom said, “How’s your day going?”
Her daughter’s face lit up with an ear-to-ear grin in return, instantly capturing the hearts of internet viewers all around the world. Even mom couldn’t help but chuckle with glee at the tiny girl’s joy.
It’s heartwarming to hear the mom’s chuckle as her daughter delights her with round after round of wonderful grins that are sweet enough to make anyone’s day.
The baby had recently been adopted through the National Down Syndrome Adoption Network, so her new skill could be a reaction to her new mother’s excitement.
While the time of smiling on cue only lasted a few weeks, mom relished it and is pleased she has a recording of her child’s first grin to cherish for the rest of her life.
Sometimes all we need to recall the important things in life is the simplicity of a child’s grin. This mom has a lovely gift that she will treasure for the rest of her life.
