I thought I'd take a break from giving advice, and instead talk about one of my favorite parts of being a mom, making my daughter laugh. She is very selective about what she laughs at. She gives smiles fairly easily, but laughter really has to be earned.

Her first laugh came after my husband made her bicycle kick me. Now a days throwing her up in the air or bouncing her are a great way to get a laugh. Blowing on her belly does not work at all, but she has just started to give raspberries at us.

What makes your little ones laugh?

Almost anything has made my babies laugh. Physical comedy, neck nibbles, rubbery facial expressions--whatever it takes. I'll take any laughter I can get from a baby. It is like honey.
