my new favorite sound

jack is a pretty tough critic. he smiles a ton, but his laughs are pretty few and far between. we usually have to work reallllly hard to get a giggle out of him, so we get super excited when he does actually laugh.

while b was out of town this week at a job interview, i got jack to crack up for the very first time! this is way more than just a giggle...this was the first time he outright laughed, and then laughed some more. i grabbed the video camera and got it on tape.

i found his giggle-trigger completely by accident. i was killing time, getting him ready for bed, and dropped my necklace onto one of his board books. you can't really see that part in the video, but all i did was drop the necklace over and over to jack's utter delight. the video is below for your viewing pleasure...if it doesn't make you smile, i'm pretty sure you have no heart.



[please also note toward the end when he drools all over himself...yeah, he does that a lot these days.]

i love jack.

OH MY GOODNESS. That was the cutest video ever. I love his little laugh and I love that the necklace dropping on the book is what he thinks is so funny...bc it's really not funny at all! But, now I will forever love it whenever a necklace drops on a book because I will like of baby j.

I can't wait to see him this week. He's adorable!

Oh my gosh that is the best thing I have ever seen. It just cracks me up that it's all over a necklace falling. Not like you're tickling him or anything, it's just a necklace dropping. SO CUTE! I'm serious- send that in to America's Funniest Home Videos. Videos like that win all the time!

How cute was that!!! There is nothing more cheering than seeing a baby crack up. Nice work in catching that moment.

Awesome. I giggled through the whole thing. Reminds me I need to take a video of our little boy and his old man wheezy laugh. Thanks for that bright spot in my day!

What?! How is he old enough to do that?! I'm still so sad I haven't seen him! Hopefully soon. I love him and his cute face.

That's HILARIOUS - and sooo adorable. I love this video because the first time Tanner ever did a full on giggle was when i dropped my necklace in the sink. My camera work wasn't as good as yours...but it is still one of my fav. memories of my little tannerman. :)
