I know which episode you were talking about. My baby is 11 weeks old and he began smiling immediately and now he smiles a lot. The mystery diagnosis on TLC was an excessively happy baby. The baby smiled even when he should be crying. You can't read into those things too much, you'll drive yourself insane. There were other things that baby did too to concern the parents so unless your baby is showing symptoms of something being wrong you should just enjoy that beautiful heart melting smile.
