This week, I'm obsessed with inducing fits of laughter.

Thick as thieves, us two.

The baby giggle has evolved into the heartiest, belliest, most infectious kid laugh. There is a sweet spot right between his shoulder and his neck, the tiniest little spot that I can't resist as I change his diaper. Just the anticipation of me opening my mouth to git him is enough to make him start squealing.

Perfection. Ridiculous perfection.

And this week, my boy is obsessed with his favorite book, Whoever You Are by Mem Fox. After adding it to his wishlist, our friends gave it to him for his birthday and we have read it no less than four times every night since then. He likes to turn the pages himself and he smiles at all of the faces in the book smiling back at him.

His friends on the right have necklaces just like him!

Tonight as Tim and I tidied up before bedtime, Eddy stood at the side of the bed and flipped through the pages slowly, studying each one. He got to a page in the book with 3 people wearing necklaces. When we read this page to him, we point out that they each have necklaces just like him. As he stood reading it himself, he paused on that page, said "Ooooooooh!" and touched his own necklace. Tim and I looked at each other in amazement. Damn near blew our little minds, I tell ya.

Obsessed. Both of us.
