It was gone as fast as it came.

A chuckle.

Two, actually.

This weekend, we heard the most glorious sound. Claire laughing. Twice. And then nothing. We tried all weekend to get her to do it again. We replayed the circumstances — Scott very loudly kissing her cheek. Nothing. I tried silly faces. Silly sounds. Peek-A-Boo. Nothing.

And when I did all of these things, she looked at me like, "Lady, what's wrong with you?"

But I can't stop myself. I want to hear it again. It was such a funny little chuckle. Huuh, Huuh, Huuh.

Sure, she'll smile at me from ear to ear on demand, and that's great. When I see that smile, it makes my day. But there's something about laughter that just makes your heart explode with joy.

So, I'll just keep waiting.
