Our friend and colleague Kate brought baby Leah, now 10 days old, in to meet everyone today. A school staffroom is a hustling and bustling place at lunchtime, and teachers are not renowned for being quiet... Yet Baby Leah was not wanting to wake up to show us her beautiful eyes. (No matter how Mel tried...)
She did however, show us a tongue-filled smile. This does not, of course, ordinarily occur until about week 4-6. It could be argued that it's a reflex smile, but we all know that this baby is just incredibly advanced; already above National Standard as far as we are concerned!
