Abby Kate has no self-esteem issues, I'm glad to report. Even with spit-up all down her shirt, she was delighted at seeing her own image for the first time. I held her up close to a full-length mirror to see what she'd do. She just stared intently at first at the baby looking back at her. She looked herself up and down, and then a slow smile started to creep across her face. When she saw the baby in the mirror smiling back, her smile just kept getting bigger and bigger. She started to coo and laugh and tried to reach out and touch her own hand. So cute! Now every time she looks in the mirror she grins from ear to ear.
