This week, he started coo-ing. He loves to talk now, and we have very deep conversations (politics, environmental issues, stuff like that). We also got his first real smile yesterday (you know the kind your parents won't say must be gas). I tried so hard to get a good picture of him smiling, but with Julianna trying to jump in front of me to see him and me trying to get him to smile while taking a picture, this is the best I could get. But I think it's GREAT!
