David laughed today!! He was sitting on my lap after a feeding and was still wide awake. He loves for us to lift him up and down slowly - we call it David flying - it seems to soothe him. Actually the occupational therapist started doing it when he was inconsolable for those few days and it worked so well. He stops crying and just stares. So today I was doing that with him and kissing him when he came down and all of a sudden he grinned a huge grin and laugh - just a tiny laugh - but a laugh all the same. It was amazing! - all of it - the fact that I can play with him at all - the fact that I can kiss him after breast feeding (woot woot! - even if I do say so myself) - and LAUGHING!!! amazing!! (I seem to be running rather low on adjectives today - ha).
In other news, Brent and I put carseats in the Sequioa this afternoon. I took photos and will have to post them soon. So we have carseats, window shades, a diaper bag with diapers, ointment, wipes, etc. and breastfeeding paraphinalia all set to go. All we need is our babies!!! Ha - the carseat installment experience was fantastic and I must reccommend it to anyone and everyone regardless of your plan to procreate. It's just a hilarious way to spend and hour and a half. Brent and I looked over at each other at least a hundred times with random straps in our hands and said,"where's this go?" (umm after about a half hour of that, we actually got out the instruction manual - you don't think we did that right off the bat do you?) I'm sure at one point we looked like 2 chimps banging on the seats and digging for the right hook to connect to the right strap. Anyhow, they are in now - and feel quite secure (again - even if I do say so myself!)
As I said, photos to follow.
