    My little girl Emily is 8weeks old on friday and shes a very smily baby, when you talk to her she will babble back to you. Its so cute lol

    When she's really smiling at you, its almost as i she going to laugh or something. Its like she doesnt quite still know what to do yet tho and just coughs of something lol

    What age did your LO start to laugh? :flower:

    It sounds like Emily is about the same as Lucy (who is 9 weeks old tomorrow). We get LOTS of smiles, often accompanied by noises and gurgles, and we think the gurgles are starting to sound more like giggles. I can't wait to hear her laugh!

    She was 6 or 7 weeks old but I had no idea it was earlier than normal. It was a definite giggle.

    Amara was 16 weeks old. I was playing with balloons trying to get her to laugh (as she had looked like she was trying) but it wasnt working, so I gave up. I turned round and she chuckled :haha:
