penny has started smiling for real - when she sees us, when she sees her favorite toys (currently soft cone shaped blocks), and randomly when she's happy. she has also started fitting into her clothing, which gives us options and makes her EVEN CUTER! she's started on bottles, she now reaches out for things, and enjoys being on her back looking at stuff. we took her to a wine bar with her aunt and we're pretty sure she liked it! this has been a huge week!
