A smile for everyone, a laugh for anyone, even when he's crying or very frusterated. Last night I was getting groceries at 9:00pm and he was with me, tired. By the time we left I had all the clerks and staff around the cart laughing at him growling and shrieking while I checked out- he was extra expressive because he was exhausted! But still smiling!
Awww, what a great personality!!! Lol! My little guys were both pretty loud, with the shrieking and all, but Eliza is so quiet in comparison! Every once in a long while she lets out a sharp chortle and it nearly makes me jump because it's so unexpected! Most of the time she looks around the room quietly, taking it all in, with such a snobby, aloof, darling little expression, like she's just so above all of this-- with her little eyebrows raised just a bit. Then she laughs, which wins you right over. She laughs all the time, what a sense of humor! But she has an unusual laugh, at first DH and I couldn't tell if she was laughing or getting ready to cry. It's hard to explain, it's just different! But the rest of the time, when she's not laughing, it's not easy for most people to get a smile out of her, and she usually has quiet smiles, maybe just one corner of her mouth goes up, not full-face smiles. I wonder if she'll be more of an introvert? It will be interesting to see!

Wow, good luck with moving-- I hate moving, too. I hope your new place feels warm and comfy and like home in no time at all!
Eliza has been pulling up to standing on everything, and just barely started taking steps while doing this (like, yesterday!) Let the cruising begin! Eeek! Her words repertoire is mama, nuh-nuh (for nursing), dada (that's new!) and she can wave "hi". She can also say baba but I don't think that means anything yet.
