Amazing Face

This little one hundred word story is linked to week 178 of Saturday Centus.   To read other links, just click here.
  
 
He opens his eyes…slowly.
 
I see his walnut brown eyes dazzle into understanding.
 
“Ahhh, I think I know you!” he communicates in silence.
 
His long, dark lashes sweep across the perfect peach of his cheek.
 
He looks at me again.
 
A hint of a smile starts to form on the arch of his perfect rose lips.
 
“Ahhhh, I’m almost certain I know you!”
 
The silence is broken with a gurgle.
 
His eyes open wider as he realizes for certain who I am.
 
There is no word for the emotion that fills my heart.
His “it’s my Grandma!” smile dazzles me.

It's amazing how much babies can communicate without words. (Such a cutie!)
