Yes, you read it right. My little girl, not so little anymore, let out the cutest of little squeaks while getting her diaper changed last night. It was a half-laugh, an imitation of Matthew’s laugh, that gave her father and I SUCH promise that the real thing is just around the corner. I have been waiting for this milestone to come, since like, ever (although mind you, laughing is listed on many references as a milestone that is reached around 3-4 months, so she is right on target!).
The video of her making this cute little noise repeatedly, is on Matthew’s cellphone, but I was able to get a pretty good video myself of this smiley, (almost) giggly girl this morning. My favourite sound in the entire world, from my favourite person in the entire world <3. The joys of motherhood – it doesn't get much sweeter than this.
I love you McKenna, I look forward to years and years and YEARS of endless laughter together.
Now if you’ll excuse me – I am off to make endless funny noises and silly faces at my little monkey so I can hear this joyous noise, again, again and again.
PS – Isn’t it hilarious the ridiculous faces and noises we are willing to make for a smile or a giggle from our beautiful babies? Soooo worth it. 🙂 Have a good day everyone – I know I will!
