I can't help myself.  I just have to post about the newest member of our family, Aubrey Allette LaVoy.  Here she is:

Does she look like a little angel, or what?  Anyway, in the hospital while she was being held, she would smile in her sleep.  Now I know that nurses and doctors will tell you that she is smiling because she has gas.  But I mean, come often do you smile if you have gas pains?  Hmmm????  Here is what my mom always said: "When a baby smiles in their sleep, it is because the angels are whispering to them."  I always loved my mom's explanation better then the medical experts.  First of all, when you have gas pains, or any other pain for that matter, you don't smile.  You grimace.  A smile is not the same as a grimace.  And new born babies do grimace as well as smile.  So if they are having gas pains, wouldn't they grimace?  That sounds logical to me.

And second, new born babies just came from God and from living with the angels.  It would be hard for the angels to let go of someone as beautiful as Aubrey, don't you think?

Anyway, when Aubrey smiles, I like to think it is because the angels are whispering to her. 


  1. Aw, Dee, she's gorgeous. I really like your mom's explanation about why babies smile and also your insight about it being hard for angels to let go of such a beautiful little girl. Congratulations!
