Almost unremarkable

I don't have time to write a long post. Today started like everyday lately. Up at 1am to feed. I got spit up on several times today too. Definitely not glamorous, but it is exactly what I've always wanted and I'm glad for it everyday.

In fact, it was almost a pretty unremarkable day. My Mother's day came about 3 months ago. But what was remarkable is that today is the day my baby laughed for the first time. And it was at me. And it was a big, wonderful laugh. Life doesn't get much better than that.

Happy Mother's Day to all the new moms, to the pregnant moms, and to all the women that have put the time and effort in and have yet to hold their babies. Bless you.

A first laugh sounds like a great way to celebrate!

Happy Mother's Day! A first laugh! Hooray! I had a first too, four hours of sleep in a row! Swoon.

I'd say that's a pretty good mother's day gift :-)

Yay for the first laugh! And on Mother's day too, what a great gift! Though she gave her first laugh something like 6 weeks ago, I am just recently getting consistent giggles from Birdie when I do certain silly things. There is not a more joyful sound than baby giggles.

How did the family visit go?

Not bad on the parent visit... I mostly ignored my mom as she rambled about my NEPHEW's sex life for 2 hours (yes, yes she did). Then M got tired and hungry and I had to feed him and that was their que to leave. What a good boy I have.
