Why is it so much fun to hear kids laugh? You just can't listen to a child laugh and not be happy...it is impossible. Isn't it interesting that God made it to where we learn to laugh before we learn to communicate verbally? I think it is God's way of telling us that it is fundamentally more important to laugh in life than pretty much everything else. :)

Elijah's laugh is one of the best sounds in the world! I love it! While he does chuckle with me at times, it is Daddy who really knows how to make him giggle.

I just put this little video of Daddy making Elijah laugh after feeding him up here for no other reason than to make you feel that boost of happiness kid laughter brings. Enjoy! :)

Love to all-
