The Giggly Girl

Meli’s feeling all better!

Laughing Just to Laugh! from January One on Vimeo.

Today was really the day she was totally back to herself. I’m feeling a whole lot better too and Georgie’s on the mend. Christmas was nice; Meli got to meet some family that she’d never met before – that was her best gift. It was pretty mellow otherwise. Next week is shaping up to be pretty crazy with lots of visits from my mom and dad and sister and the kids. And, then, well…Thursday. I was born on a Thursday.

But back to my girl. She’s really started doing so so much! She pulls up on everything now. Her teeth have busted on through. She loves eating her finger foods and it’s crazy fun to watch her. And that laugh! She’s never been a real laugher until, well, today! Today she just couldn’t stop. I hope it keeps up.

Hope your holidays were lots of fun! Thanks!
