The other day Amelie and I had the most wonderful little moment. I was feeding her her dinner of soup and she pursed her lips and kind of blew a little soup bubble. Some of it splattered on my legs and I laughed. She caught my eye and started giggling. I then pursed my lips and made that noise I can't think of how to describe other than farty? Amelie thought it was hilarious. I'm not sure if it was the noise or the mess she was making that most amused her but we had a wonderful half an hour or so of bubble blowing and giggling.
If felt like the first time we were properly interacting. I wasn't just making her laugh, she was trying to make me laugh and I felt like she was saying 'again again mama'. It was one of those priceless moments I would have loved to have caught on video but I know that would have spoiled it somehow. It was a good realisation that this little person I take care of, is just that, a little person. I suddenly got excited about all the future little moments we're going to have together as she grows up.
I've always loved my baby obviously but now we're starting to play together I'm realising how much I like her too. I like her company, she's always in good mood. So much so, she's starting to make me feel in a good mood a lot more. We've also started singing Always Look On The Bright Side of Life to her and she finds the whistling fascinating. Babies are so delightfully easy to please aren't they?
