love, life, and the pursuit of liberation
she laughs! not just the cute coos but real laughs in response to stimulation. before, i would tickle her and she would give me a cross between gas face and panic, like “what are you doing mama!!” now she *gets* that tickles are funny and she actually laughs. she also laughs when me or her mommy laughs. here she goes here.
it’s really fun that she knows how to follow cues. her ability to follow cues grows by the day. a couple of weeks ago i was playing this game where i would “zerbert” her neck and say “i got you!” pretty soon, she was throwing her neck back and smiling in anticipation. yesterday, A and i were wiggling our heads at her. she happened to look over at me, so i started doing the same. so she started looking back and forth, back and forth watching us wiggle. after a while we stopped, but she kept looking back and forth at us as if trying to will us to wiggle. i also play this bouncy game where i go “bounce, bounce WEEEEE” and on the “wheeee” i fly her in the air. after a few rounds, she started to go limp on the 3rd bounce so that i could fly her in the air.
where did this kid come from??????? she is so amazing.
sidenote- i’m still uncertain about the work situation but i’m leaning more towards work..
