Kate has got some very adorable facial expressions....

Jennifer has a magazine about how to play games with your newborn. One of the games involves simply looking at Kate with a blank expression, then smiling and saying “Look Kate, I’m Happy!”. Kate is supposed to mimic your facial expression by smiling back at you. Another version of the same game involves sticking your tongue out at Kate and hoping she will mimic the same gesture back.

Jennifer and I have both played this game with success! The biggest problem is getting Kate to focus on your face long enough to play the game. Kate seems enamored with her surroundings all the time…especially the TV. Kate stares at the TV endlessly sometimes, which is not a habit we want her to get into.

Either way – it is fun to watch Kate respond with a smile or even a tongue!
