16 Everyday Moments that Make My 16-Month-Old Giggle

If you asked me ten years ago what the best sound in the world was, I am not sure what my answer would have been. If you ask me today the answer is easy; the sound of my kids giggling. Nothing beats it. I could be having the craziest day, I hear my little ones giggle (sometimes uncontrollably) and all is well with the world.

What’s incredible about the giggles is how they are often brought on by the day-to-day things that adults don’t find too funny. But kids, being the rays of light that they are, see the best in everything. They take a simple moment and turn it into an opportunity to laugh until they just can’t laugh anymore. I love it. It helps me maintain my sense of humor and keeps me grounded and focused on the goodness in life. There is very little we can control, so why not make the best of things and have a good laugh, right?

Here are pictures of 16 random moments that make my 16-month-old girl (and sometimes her brother) giggle her little heart out. What everyday moments make your little ones giggle?
