Ollie’s fourth month has been a month of laughter.
We finally got Ollie to laugh this month! To say that we have been impatiently waiting for her first giggles is a drastic understatement. And, as one can imagine, once we heard her first laugh we have done everything we can think of to recreate this beautiful sound as often as possible. It irritates her, but isn’t that what parents are for?
You can read about Ollie’s third month here.
We go to Ollie’s 4 month appointment on Monday, and I am excited to see how much she has grown and what growth percentiles she is in.
