Smiling Boy

I have a ton of work to do, so I'll make this short and sweet.
We took Henry to his first music festival this weekend, and the boy got to see his daddy perform for the first time. He has, of course, heard me perform plenty of times, but I imagine that layers of skin and placenta can muffle things a bit, so this was a momentous time.

The three of us had a great time, checking out music, seeing friends, eating good (mostly free!) food, and just enjoying a nice weekend in a cabin in the gorgeous setting that is Lake Eden and its surroundings, in Black Mountain, NC.

Henry chose this weekend to start smiling regularly. Beth had already seen him smile a few times at her, and I've seen sleep smiles from the boy, but for the first time, he consistently stared up at his parents' faces and broke out in a huge, cute, messy smile.

My heart is still melted.
