First Time Amo Giggle

I was getting him ready to go out to check out this school so I could get my Massage business up here now that i live in fl. So I was putting him some sunblock and all of sudden he started laughing so hard and he is 2 months and 3 weeks and it was the cutest moment and I was so happy I saw it first. I called his dad to let him know Amo just laugh so hard and he said that was cool. Then i called my mother to let her know as well. I was trying to get it on camera and he didn't want to do it anymore. I guess that's how baby's do it you have to be there at the spare of the moment.. Love you papi 6-12-09
