Bertrand laughs.

On January 22nd, 2010, there was a momentous occurrence at the Might household: Bertrand laughed for the first time. The 25 months of waiting were long but worth it. I am not biased at all when I say Bertrand's laugh is the most magical sound in the universe. Of course, until Daddy could witness, it couldn't really have happened as it is a sound that we'd stopped hoping for long ago. So, without further ado, here is the proof as captured tonight by Daddy. :)

Do you remember how Bertrand used to look like THIS before starting the ketogenic diet? It only took 10 weeks on the diet to go from staring little lump to laughter and preliminary language. Bertrand is only on a 3:1 ratio on the diet. We hope that by increasing his ratio (to 3.5 or 4:1) within the next month, we will increase his results!


  1. Oooohhhh, what a beautiful video! That's so wonderful, Cristina and Matt! I didn't know Bertrand was talking, too. Hurray, hurray, hurray! Did he also sign "book" partway through?

    SOOOOOOO happy for all three of you!!!

  2. Wow - that was beautiful.

  3. Okay, that was the best thing I have seen in weeks. I love the sound of his laugh!! It is just so adorable :) :) Love it, love it, love it.

  4. My little angel is beautiful! And he laughed with joy! He is also talking; I heard him say MORE!
    Love y miles de besos!

  5. YAY!!! Cristina, you're right. It is the most magical sound. :)
