Evan's got the giggles. We’ve never heard him laugh like this before. He finds things spontaneously funny, whereas not long ago, we had to work for every chuckle. Now we can see that his ever-important sense of silliness is developing.

Hearing your kid belly laugh for the first time, you stop in your tracks. The sound of a soul, growing. A sound that deserves instantaneous world peace.

Even though I know we’ll someday take it for granted, I tell myself now I’ll never forget how amazing this is, this sound. He becomes his own person, right before our eyes.
