a laugh… last night, perze called me to hurry to the room where he was playing with Emma. Little did I know that I was in for one of her cute milestones. When I got there, Emma was standing on Perze’s tummy – laughing. I don’t know how Perze did it, but he was making her laugh along with him. I melted. This is how it feels when you hear your baby laughs for the first time: it’s like… getting your diploma at graduation knowing your class was cancelled for the rest of the week hearing someone you love say i love you for the first time getting an A on a test you didn’t study for receiving a present even when it’s not your birthday or christmas, or presidents day her laugh was so simple, but it was so exciting and moving at the same time. it’s so funny how a tiny baby who has no intention of evoking your emotion can make you feel so squishy inside.
