HAPPY BABY INDUSTRIES' ATLANTA BRANCH IS PROUD TO ANNOUNCE A NEW BREAKTHROUGH

....actual laughter. The other day, while holding a good friend's three month old son, I distracted him from his looking about at stray sunbeams by blowing puffs of air at one tiny ear. This resulted in a baby chortle that had his father looking over in startlement and noting that that was his first actual laugh. Not a whoop or a chirp but an actual giggle. I've been tickled about it ever since. I love the idea that however many times he laughs, for the rest of his life (and may it be many, many, many times), I was there for the first time. I begin to get a glimpse of why people have babies.
