I was a little anxious for the fireworks display—worried that it the loud blasts will freak her out. I heard that babies of same age as hers usually panic on their first experience with fireworks. But with her, I was totally wrong. As the vibrant colors of fireworks zoomed towards the night sky with big bangs, there was never a sign of fear from her. There was no spectacular reaction from her though. Her face looked like she already saw it before. :)
Also that night, she learned how to clap. Her Dada showed her how to do it. I guess with the excitement going on inside of her, overwhelmed with great visual stuff around, had helped her motivation to learn clapping.
She had a wonderful 4th of July celebration. She was so tired—it knocked her off on our way home. Next year, by the grace of God, she will have another great Independence Day.

Happy girl on Independence Day!
