Since she was born, I am realizing it isn't quite as easy as I had thought. Not only because life with a young baby is a strange combination of hectic and lazy, but also because these milestones aren't quite as cut and dry as one might think.
At some point in the past month or so (maybe longer?) Gemma began to laugh.
I didn't realize it at first. I dismissed it, saying that she was "trying" to laugh. At some point she went from trying to doing and I don't know when it happened. Officially that is.
According to her baby calendar, it happened December 25th but mostly I just put that down because...well, you have to use the Baby's First Laugh sticker somewhere, right?
I wanted to post tonight to remind myself of some of the very first things that Gemma finds hilarious.
As the not-so-great-but-working-on-it-even-if-it-is-not-really-possible keeper of all memories and milestones, I promise, all of these are true.
Things that crack Gemma up:
- Toe Kisses
- Strange Teeth Sucking Noise
- Yanking Mama's Hair
- Patty Cake
- Belly Rubs by Someone's Head
- Random, Unexpected Eye Contact
- Certain Toys
- Bella and O.J. (my Dad's Dogs)
I look forward to seeing this list grow.
Even if I do forget to write it all down.
