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!

how awesome, and what a good sense of humor she must have!
I'm still trying to figure out if I'm getting chuckles. R smiles and seems to sort of chuckle, but it's still pretty subtle. I can't wait for the giggle and the full out screech of happiness I've seen in friends' 6 mo. olds and 1 year olds...

So weird! I just popped in to make this EXACT thread!

Lyra giggled at me last night as I was putting her feet up to my nose, sniffing them and exclaiming "PEEEEEEE YOOOUUU!!!" (She LOVES that game).

At first I thought it a fluke, but them she did it again, this adorable little goofy laugh.

Best birthday present. evar.

Isn't it awesome! Dylan has been laughing for a bit and I love it. He laughs by himself....something must be funny to him, but it's the best when I can make him laugh. It makes my heart melt!

DD doesn't think i'm funny at all. i've been tickling to the point of torture, probably but no laughs yet, at 11.5 weeks. DS was laughing himself silly at this age, but nothing that got him laughing has worked yet. she aaaalllmost laughs, but not really. i can't wait!!

Jimmy has been giggling for a while now...usually few and far between. Unless he is watching Colin (DS1), then he just giggles and giggles. He thinks watching Colin eat is the funniest thing ever. I love this phase!
