I think Ava sometimes dreams of feeding because I can watch her lips make the sucking movement while she’s sleeping.
She makes these half smiles like the picture above, but I know they’re just a reflex and not from joy. The baby books say that at 6-8 weeks babies will mimic your expressions so I’ll be smiling a lot. I’m not a happy affectionate person, but maybe I can convince her to be happy and affectionate if I smile enough. I give her a lot of kisses with the same hope. She merely tolerates them right now, though.
Right after she wakes up, she makes these incredibly adult faces. Like this one makes it look like she’s exasperated with me.
She looks so completely different depending on the expression. See below? She looks like a different baby.
