Talitha has begun to really make eye contact and smile more frequently these days. Night or day, whenever she catches my eye, she immediately smiles. She even does a little bit of cooing. It's so nice to have her make noise that isn't crying.
With both my other girls, having them smile and coo at me like this was so significant because I felt like it was a sign that they were really bonding well. So, when Tali started smiling more often at me, I had the same thought, "Oh, good! She's really bonding to me." Have I mentioned I often forget that she's not adopted?
