The Wonder of a Belly Laugh

It's amazing what makes my baby laugh. Random things. Normal occurrences. People being people.

The other day, after Daddy C had returned from a long day at work, we went into the bedroom and laid down on the bed together (normally we eat dinner first, but the broccoli was taking longer than usual!).

Apparently, this was the funniest thing Peanut has ever seen: I set my head down and brought it back up to look at her, and she immediately started belly laughing. We were so confused, but delighted all the same. I did it again and she busted out with another precious roll of laughter. Her face was turning red from giggling so hard! She was having a blast! Daddy C and Mommy C just looked at each other and began laughing along (how can you not laugh when a baby is so happy?!). It was such a special moment.

Times like these remind me of the beauty of life - enjoying and capturing these tiny pockets of joy amidst the everyday. It helps you focus on what's really important. Not the piles of laundry, the mile-long to-do list, the dusty house or what's for dinner; but people- the amazing relationships we have with each other and our family.
