What’s making me smile at the moment?
It’s not hard to make me smile.
I’ve actually got a smile named after me, the ‘Debbie Smile’ – honestly it’s a real thing!
This week I’m smiling at this sweet potato. Do you know why?
My daughter and her husband are expecting their first baby, so my husband and I are now officially ‘Grandparents in Waiting‘. Yes I know, it’s pretty exciting! It’s enough to make anyone smile 🙂
But wait there’s more!
I’ve got access to an app that charts the growth of the baby and this week it just happens to be the size of a sweet potato, so I couldn’t resist taking a photo of this sweet potato to share with you.
According to the app the baby is now 5 1/2 inches long (13.97cm) and weighs about 7 ounces (198.45gms) and hopefully it won’t be as orange as a sweet potato!
Last week it was the size of a tangy pomegranate and I managed to photograph one in the local supermarket. I’m loving the vegetable comparisons, one week it was a dill pickle, the next a brilliant beetroot and before that a brussel sprout!
I love reading all the information available on the app, about how the baby is progressing, its size, how its eyelashes are forming, the fact that it will be starting to move soon and my daughter will feel it kicking. It’s a long time since I was pregnant and I’ve forgotten so much. This time I’m enjoying it as an outsider looking in, which is waaaaay more comfortable. There seems to be so much information out there now and I’m fascinated at having it so readily available. Back in my day it was all so different. I must say that I thoroughly sparkled during my three pregnancies and have nothing but good memories from that exciting time of my life.
It makes me smile every time I read something new 🙂
This week’s Daily Post photo challenge asks for something or someone that puts a smile on our face .
This week, show us a smile (yours or someone else’s), make us smile, or both. Share a photo of something that has brought a moment of joy into your life recently, or focus on the outcome of that joy.
I can honestly say it’s the simple things in life, like taking a photo of a sweet potato, that has made me smile this week 🙂
I’ll leave you with this photo, taken in December, which I took as part of our 52 week photo project. The theme for the week was , you guessed it, smile 🙂
Now if you don’t have a smile on your face after that then you’re just not trying!
Smile and the world smiles with you!
What’s made you smile recently? I’d love to know 🙂
