One of the new things we've seen with Miss A in the last month is a developing list of things that make her happy. Ever since she first smiled she has smiled a lot, but we are now starting to see patterns of specific things that bring out her biggest and broadest smiles and giggles.
Foremost on the list this week, it seems, are FEET. Her own, her dad's, her mom's... she's not biased like that. Last night, in the bath, I sat her up and splashed my foot in the water. PEALS of laughter. And then I splashed her feet in the water. DOUBLE PEALS of laughter.
She is also developing an increasing happiness at the sight of the cats. They continue to be pretty ambivalent about her, but she smiles at them when they come in the room, she follows their every movement and if we're lucky enough to be able to get her close enough to stroke one of them, she squeals with delight.
And we - her mama and papa - are also on that list, thankfully! First thing in the mornings and when she wakes up from her naps, she is always thrilled to see one of us come through the door of her nursery. We get the big smile and she kicks her feet as hard as she can to show us how excited she is to be getting up to face the next part of her day.
