Henry's got a real laugh

Ok, so the boy has been smiling accompanied by sharp intakes of breath that resemble a laugh for some time now, but it wasn't until yesterday that he perfected the art of laughing. So far, he has only laughed for Hank, and that's cool because that means I get to enjoy the show. The sound of his laughter is probably THE most joyous thing I've yet experienced in my life, and I'm including the day he was born in there, because the day he was born was painful, gross, traumatic...

Sorry about that.

Now, where was I? Oh yes, Henry's laughter. It makes my heart jump for joy. And here's a little video documenting his 2nd time really laughing. It's sideways, and has a bit of footage of Henry not quite laughing,but rather being distracted by the phone that was filming him, but it's worth watching.

Henry and his jury rigged play yard

Nothing exciting, just my boy, some hand-me-down rings, and half the toys he owns. He loves his crib gym that I made!

Try not to fall out of your seats with excitement as you watch this clip.

Henry Scoots

Thanks to everyone who could make it (online, in person, or in spirit) to Henry's Blessing! He truly is a blessing in my life. He inspires me to really grab every day by the...horns...and embrace life. Plus, he's got a great sense of humor.

Some stats:
At 12 weeks, Henry is 25 inches long and 15 lbs, 8oz. He can laugh, he is beginning to mimic my speech patterns, he likes to kick (pretty hard, too!), oh yeah, and here's his latest trick- Hank discovered it last night as we were entertaining ourselves during a glitch in the Christmas Broadcast.

As Hank so aptly put, it's like a wheelchair for babies!

This baby is hours of entertainment.
