If you're happy and you know it, wiggle your arms and legs as fast as you can

Despite the somber pictures of Jared we've been posting lately, Jared is really a very happy little boy.  We usually post his more serious pictures because when he is happy, he wiggles, which doesn't make very good pictures.  As proof that Jared spends most of his time smiling, I am going to post a short history of his smiles, starting with the first picture I ever got of him smiling.  This was taken at 4:00 a.m. one day when he was about a month old. 

Here is Jared in his favorite place: his jumper.  It's even harder to get a picture here because, when he is happy, he flails his arms and jumps with gusto.  If he looks a little less happy than usual, it's because I can't ever manage to time the shutter click for the fraction of a second after he starts to smile and before he starts to jump wildly. 

 This is Jared yesterday.  If you have a good imagination, you can kind of see his wisp of hair.

This one was taken today.  Jared is happy here because he just got out of his car seat, which is starting to be a little too snug.

If these weren't enough to get you smiling, here's a smile for the rest of you.  This is apparently what happens when Daddy changes baby's clothes unsupervised. 

 I hope this brings a little sunshine to your dismal, rainy January Tuesday.  It always improves my day.

Wow-those pants are hiked up pretty high. Good thing he has a diaper to keep him from getting a wedgie. ;) And I must have a good imagination because I can definitiely see the hair coming in good and thick... well, coming in at least.

I guess my imagination isn't as good as Colette's. I don't see much more fuzz on his head than I saw the week after he was born. I like his old man pants.
