47 Weeks Old

Lyra is the giggliest baby I have ever met. She has a little cold and giggles like an 80 year old smoker. It’s funny and contagious. Even at 6:45 in the morning when we just want 5 more minutes in bed.

She has also started pointing at everything and touching things with one tiny little finger. But when she’s not pointing with that finger she’s chewing on it. Those 4 new teeth did s number on her and I’m hoping now that the last one is in she’ll stop chewing on her hands.

Lastly, she has developed the most evil stare. It looks like she hates you. At first we were a little worried it was coming with a new bratty attitude, but it turns out if you stare back at her she bursts out laughing. She must have just discovered she could make this face and is experimenting with it. At least, that’s what I hope. We don’t need a rebellious streak yet!
