The sweetest sound

Yesterday while Lily and I were playing on her floor mat, she let out her first chuckles followed by her first giggles.

I was bouncing her little Peace pillow rattle off her nose and making funny mouth noises when she let out the first chuckle. I stopped and thought to myself, “was that a chuckle?”.

I bounced the pillow rattle off her nose again and again she chuckled.

With my eyes almost filling up with tears of joy, I kept doing it and eventually the chuckles turned into giggles!

Will was at work so I quickly sent him a message on IM for him to call me so he too could hear them.

It was like we had never heard laughter before.

It was the sweetest sound and we can’t wait to hear it again.

Here is Lily as she was yesterday with the Peace pillow rattle that was a gift from Natasha. Lily wears a dress by Old Navy.
