I remember the day that Brody was born the dr. said to him, "Come on baby, cry..." It seemed like an eternity before Brody made that first cry and I swear it was the sweetest noise I had ever heard up to that point in life. I don't think I have heard something better, but I have found its match.
Our Brody laughed out loud for the first time yesterday. He is always a smiley little boy, but I haven't been able to get a giggle until now. I read in a book some of the things that a three month old can do or may be doing and laughing out loud was one of them. I was a little disappointed, because Brody hadn't laughed yet and I was really looking forward to it. But just like him coming a couple days before his due date, Brody laughed just a few days before his 3 month birthday.
By my reaction you would have thought that Brody had just won the nobel peace prize, but it was his simple giggle that reduced me to tears. He laughed several times and I called Trevor to let him hear, but he couldn't hear it. Of course, once Trevor got home 15 minutes later he wouldn't laugh again! (Trevor's going to start thinking that I'm lying if Brody won't do any of the cute things for him that he does when Brody and I are alone)
I haven't even been able to get Brody to laugh again, but now that I've heard it once, I know it can happen at any given time again. Until then though....I'll be waiting on the edge of my seat!
