Talula laughed at me for the first time last night (11.5 weeks)!!!! I cannot tell you how incredibly thrilling it was. I was making a silly noise that made her smile, while changing her diaper. Then I added a little puff of breath to her face as I made the noise and she just broke out into a hysterical laugh. I would look away and then back at her and just seeing my face again would ignite this glorious, jolly laughing fit. We were both exhausted when it was over and I just couldn't quit smiling. They say that a parent is only as happy as their saddest child. I'm starting to understand that phrase, because when my baby is happy I am over the moon. And when she's sad, I physically ache to make her feel better. Laughing is THE best!
