Replicable Laughter

After weeks of effort, false positives, and null results, we have finally found a paradigm that achieves replicable laughter.  We should have thought of the obvious mommy-kissing-thighs-with-Haven's-hands-in-her-mouth earlier.  We already tried virtually every other combination of person, noise, location, and action.

Aunt Ali and Haven getting to know each other

Dancing Queen

Young and sweet.  Definitely more entertaining for us than for her.  This does not show any particular new skill, but does reveal the consequences of boogying a baby for a few minutes.


Compared to a few weeks ago, Haven's motor dexterity has risen sharply, as has her interest in interacting with toys.  Compare this one with the previous one posted a month ago (Feb 3).

Three Months

For her three month birthday, Haven is sporting the new combforward-rampside hairstyle.  It is all the rage among pre-talkers.

The Budding Conversationalist

Haven will turn 3-months on Friday.  In anticipation, she decided that she would start vocalizing.  She started making non-crying noises some weeks ago, but they were sporadic and brief.  In the last few days, they have become much more interactive - a call-and-response with others.  This morning, she pursued her most intensive monologues yet.  Here is one, if only we were fluent in gibberish.

Dance, Dance, Dance

This may have been more entertaining for mom and dad than bug, but she was having fun nonetheless.  Her social interactivity is apparent, and dramatically enhanced compared to 6 weeks ago.  She is 12 weeks old today.
