he's got this giggle...

let me just say alexander has a
bubbly way of laughing.
it is his giggle and it is contagious.

he giggles a lot when i sign to him.
it must be the expression on my face,
i usually look like a foolish clown at the circus.

when we are playing and i am signing,
i usually end up giggling like a little girl
listening to him laugh at me over and over again until
he falls over from too much laughter.

oh, how i love the belly ache i get from laughing.
i just can't get enough of this little boy.

as he learns language he is also
developing a great sense of humor,
with a hint of mischievousness.
he has found a love for
flour and flowers.
why are tractors in my baking flour?
you're planning to smell that flower right?!
nope, he took a good bite out of it.
at least it is better then choking on the
dandelion seeds like last time.
big milestone:
in the past 2 weeks he went from
crawling to walking to running.
i love it!

I'm glad I'm not alone on the Mischieviousness! It must be the age. All of your boys have SO much personality... I wonder where they get it from?

So my kids aren't the only ones in flowers? PHEW!!! I love his giggle! Now that he is running, I am sure you are chasing him!

Great picture. Alexander is just so adorable. Thank you for sharing the experience.

I'm a physician and former faculty member at Harvard and Stanford Medical Schools. I discovered your blog while looking for the best health writers on the web. I reviewed your posts, and think your writing would be a great addition to the Hearing Loss & Deafness Community on Wellsphere, a top 5 health website that has nearly 5 million visitors monthly. If you would like to learn more about how you can join our Health Blogger Network, republish your blog posts and be featured on the Wellsphere platform, just drop me an email at

I got your email about my involvement with Wellsphere. I, too, saw that article a few months ago...after I had already done it. I did it because a lot of other CI blogging moms had done it, that I trusted. It hasn't made a difference to me either way, it hasn't helped, but hasn't hurt either. I did email asking that my blog be removed, but don't know if it was.
