Oh Delight! A Little Giggle!

Tonight after our last feeding of the day, Kate was a bite more alert and smiley than usual, so I decided to read her a story before bed. I sat in the glider in her room and she sat on my lap facing outwards...looking towards the book. This is the position we assume every morning after her 6 a.m. feeding when we read Green Eggs and Ham. She likes this set-up because not only can she look at the pages of the book as I turn them but she can also look at her latest passion...the ceiling fan. She just LOVES ceiling fans (but I'll save that for another post).

Anyway, tonight I was reading Oh, the THINKS You Can Think when, no sooner did I finish the first page, Kate started laughing. And her laugh quickly turned into a giggle.

After getting over my initial shock I called out to Ken for him bare witness to this cool little event...Kate's first laugh. Unfortunately, Kate had already finished her giggle by the time Ken got there. BUT it was amazing...the cutest little laugh and giggle I've ever heard! Oh, I just can't wait for her to do it again!

Now if I can just figure out if she was laughing at the book, me reading the book, her good friend the ceiling fan or a combination all of the above.
