Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy.
~Edith Mae Michaelson~
This quote was recently shared with Alyssa by my Grandmother also named Lelia. She is Amiyah's Great-Great Grandmother on my mom's side of our family.
Edith was my Grandma's Mom who has been deceased since I was little.
To Amiyah, Edith is her Great-Great-Great Grandmother.
Amiyah started smiling when Great-Great Grandma was holding her and when she told Alyssa what her Mom used to say about smiling babies, there were tears in the eyes of my almost 80 year old Grandma.
Very precious moment.
I have no idea what runs through a baby's mind, if anything, or if its just muscle spasms tugging at the corners of their mouth. Perhaps Grandma Edith was right and the angels are talking to them.
Whatever it is that makes a baby smile, may you see the same expression on my face when I think of You.
Pure, innocent joy.
