The Art of the Giggle
One of the best sounds in the entire world (to me) is the sound of a little kid laughing. Not a fake forced laugh, but a true little giggle or belly laugh. It's a sound that makes me smile just thinking of it. These are the times when I wish I had audio to accompany a photo. This cutie pie is my neighbor's son and he is turning 3 in about a week. We were being silly, which is easy to do with a 3-year-old. Running around the yard (he beat me), picking up worms (again), and playing with his enormous Newfoundland dog Max (big white mass of fluffy fur). All of this led to the giggles shown here. Sure you can make laughing noises all you want, but when you get a child to actually giggle, that sound is art to me.
