First Laugh

Soren & I were over visiting Shay this afternoon. I had the little guy in the front pack facing the fish tank (they've got a really neat salt water tank with tons of very colorful fish), and he was giggling at Shay, like really giggling. Chortling, even. It was just about the cutest thing ever. I hope he keeps it up so I can catch it on video soon.

Other milestones, etc: He's still very fond of blowing raspberries, and his other vocalizations are becoming even more varied. He's obsessed with grabbing his toes (see this week's Haiku post) and is starting to be able to lift his head up while he's lying on his back. (Baby crunches.) He can roll from his back to his side very easily and sometimes makes it all the way to his belly; it's easier for him to do this on the bed or couch than on the flat ground. He's still trying to figure out what to do with his arms when he's rolling or scooting forward on his belly. And of course, noted below, he can stand up really well. He still needs help balancing (duh) but the strength is all there. Same with sitting up. He loves playing in his little jumpy swing and can really get a good bounce going sometimes. Such the cutest boy there ever was.
