Max laughed for the first time Tuesday, which was the highlight of my week so far. But he didn't laugh for me, I only caught the tail end of a third or fourth laugh a bit later. I was making dinner, and Adam came into the kitchen with the biggest grin on his face and said, "He laughed! For me!" Ah, the sweet moments that make all the poop and vomit worth it . . . .
Kind of like the moment we had tonight while our children played quietly together, which, in its own right was special. But then I overheard the following:
Isaiah (playing the Little People Mom): Ring, ring . . . I'm calling you at your office . . .
Katie (playing the Little People Dad): Hello? What do you need?
Isaiah: I need you to come home and make the baby laugh.
Yeah, we need our daddy around. Because the baby's not the only happy person when Daddy's around, our whole family is just happier.
