One of the blogs I read is hosting a giveaway for something I really, really want, so I’m (selfishly) not going to tell you whose blog it is….but the gist is for us to leave a comment sharing something non-tangible that we treasure.
I posted my reply, then read it back, and loved the sentiment so much, I decided to post it here for safekeeping….so I’ll always remember.
I definitely treasure the sound of my children's laughter RIGHT NOW, at this stage of their – and my – life.
Seth is just-3, and his laugh is loud and staccato, and half the time I'm shushing him 'cause the baby is sleeping, but he laughs so BIG and the joy just pours out of him.
Erin, tiny bean at 8 months, has a more mellow guffaw. Really, that is the only word for it. The very first time we heard her chuckle/chortle, it was directed at Seth -- he can make her laugh in a heartbeat. He is for sure her favorite person, and I love the adoration I hear for him in her laugh.
(note to self….try to capture the sound on video)
