Clara gets the giggles

Lately Paul and I have had great success in getting Clara into uncontrollable fits of hysterical laughter.  It is probably just a development phase that she is going through, but we like to think it is because we are such awesome and hilarious parents.  Sometimes the giggles come on when her diaper is getting changed and she gets away from us with a bare bum and we chase her around the room trying to tackle her before she pees on the carpet.  (She has only ever peed once while I was changing her until this past week and suddenly it has happened almost once a day - is that normal?) 

Last night the fits of laughter came on by me singing the theme song from the original "Batman" TV show while staging a mock fight by myself complete with "Zock!" and "Pow!" sound-effects and round-house kicks, jabs and uppercuts against an invisible opponent.  Seriously, I got a great workout in while kickboxing in front of Clara and Paul for five minutes while Clara threw her head back and howled with delight at the hilarity of mom acting ridiculous while Dad was trying to rock her to sleep. 

She doesn't laugh half as hard in this video as she did the other night with the Batman action, but she thought that Girard the Giraffe and her dad were enormously entertaining.  Plus, she had already been laughing pretty hard for a few minutes while I was doing dishes and Paul was playing with her, so I only got the tail end when her fits were dying down.

  1. Baby giggles are the best! I love how she keeps gnawing on Paul's leg. Luke is constantly doing that to my shoulder. Teething maybe?

  2. So cute! Seeing a video makes everyone seem more real somehow (since I've never actually met you guys). :) In fact, that's the first time I remember ever hearing your actual voice! Crazy! You have a nice-sounding speaking voice! Hahaha.

    In regards to your comment on my blog, I love all of your Clara updates, so don't stop. I used to be bored of all the baby updates on my friend's blogs, but now that I have a baby of my own, I LOVE reading about other people's babies. Funny, huh? I love the monthly updates you do about Clara because it lets me know what we have to look forward to in a few months. I've actually gone back and re-read them sometimes to see what I might be able to expect from Noah that particular month. I lost my What To Expect the First Year book somehow, so your blog has become my resource! Ha!

    I will write back to your email very soon!! Thanks for keeping in touch.

  3. Typo above: *friends' blogs. Sorry.
