Matt has shown us his gentle side. Matt likes his routine in all areas of life - also with Kara. He has this little ritual of engaging with Kara and this gets played out in the exact same manner a number of times during the day...
Matt sits and waits for me to put Kara on his lap. As she rests in his arms he beams like a lighthouse on a dark night.
Matt has his own little baby that he cares for, often mimicking what I do with Kara. Hugging, cuddling, and giving kissing his doll has a real baby. He has even given her a name: "Goo goo ga ga"
Matt was totally delighted when Kara was able to smile back at him. Her toothless grin is like sunshine and Matt has developed just the right tilt of the head and big grin to make Kara giggle. It is wonderful watching the two interact. In fact it is precious watching all three of my kids interact.
