i think about what it would be like to grow up with a memory of life like that... every single day there was laughter.
it started somewhere about 2 months when i was singing a made up song about diaper changes and your smile turned into a giggle that became full on rolling laughter.
you surprised me. it was simple joy. exploded. it was that kind of moment when tinker bell was born.
i want to remember that moment for the rest.of.my.life.
it became very clear that my new mission in life was Laughter. not just anyone's... but yours.
most of the time it just sneaks up on me when i was doing something unintentionally but i also actively try to "check it off the list" and if every once in a while the whole day goes by without it happening for some reason or another, i find a way to fit it in so it happens before bed time. sometimes it's a noise i make, a song i sing, a surprise game of peekaboo, a book i read, when i pretended the washcloth dog was talking to you or the green beans were a mustache or the way one little piggy always goes all the way home..... but to you, i've learned, i'm funny.
and to me, you're our whole world.
p.s. that piggy going wee wee wee all the way home is my fail safe....
