Laughing Babies have talking siblings...

Today, I want to talk to you about a topic that is very near and dear to me. My sister just had her second baby, which makes me Aunt Christie 2.0. My beautiful little nephew is no less beautiful and in fact with the arrival of the little bundle we call Meg, he has blossomed into a most excellent toddler. The other day when I called my sister, I could hear him talking in the background. He was dismayed that one of his balloons had popped. He still had one balloon, but the balloon he had popped did not have helium, and he liked it better. Of the balloon that had helium, he said, "This one's too fluffy!" Genius child. Takes after me.

So, with that in mind, I have an assignment for you. Don't just listen to the little cuddly babies, listen to the voices in the background, the oft overlooked older sibling. They are sweet and funny too...

In the second clip in Video #1, you can hear another little cutie saying "It's Ariel!" followed by the vocal stylings of everyone's favorite mermaid. Ah ah ah, ah ah ah ah, ah ah ah, ah ah ah ah. Or something like that.

And in video 2, our laughing baby Morgan has a sibling, and this sibling seems alternately entertained and frightened by little Morgan's laugh (as we all are). Saying "Mommy it's scary" and "Again Mommy."

And now, on to Video #3. I've posted Aubrey before, but she is just proof that the fun doesn't stop when they start talking!!! Love these guys. Props to 'Max's world' and 'Ask a Preschooler' (previously, 'Ask a Toddler'). Their's is the only channel on YouTube to which I am a subsrciber. A Shout out to Little Falcon Studios!

Because Laughter is the Best Medicine

My life has been a nutty whirlwind of late. I absolutely have to find a job, because my severance is running out, and my partner and I just found an apartment together and will move NEXT WEEK. Oh, yeah, and we are also going to get married. I love him so very much, and sometimes its just that precise feeling of gratitude wakes me up at 5:00 in the morning with heart palpitations.

When life is good it can be hard too, because you feel so lucky and you don't want anything bad to happen to the good things you have. That's why, when you are feeling like that I want you to come see the doctor here at Laughing Babies. Take three of these and call me in the morning.

Okay, this is really the cutest thing I have ever seen. It's not laughing, it's not a baby, but I want it to lick my face!!!
