Yesterday was the first time Reese laughed. It was the sweetest sound I've ever heard! It wasn't any huge ha ha ha or anything, but it was a tiny little breathy sound that made my day. I ran my finger over her lips to make them do the motor boat sound and she loved it! Before I knew it, she had a full-on smile that turned to a breathy little laugh. I could've sat there all day and played that game. She must've been able to also because once she finally quit, I walked away to finish packing up and I heard her scream. I know that scream meant, "Hey! I wasn't done playing yet!" There are so many things that will be her firsts, some I'll be there for, some I won't. But I will always remember how great it felt to make her so happy that she laughed for the first time. My cup runneth over....
