My children are are still young enough for me to cuddle any time I want to but they're also old enough to do a lot of things independently, like get dressed by themselves, brush their teeth, and help with household chores. (Although that last one doesn't happen as often as it should!) Even though they're getting older every day—they are now five and seven years old—I remember their infant days as if it were yesterday. I recently watched my sister's wedding video, and I got so emotional. She was married in 2008, when my oldest son had just turned three, and my youngest was six months old. I couldn't believe how small my boys were. It brought tears to my eyes.
My baby boys and their adorable smiles and laughter caught on video was so heartwarming. I'd give anything to go back in time, just for a moment. The infant days are fleeting, really.
New parents go a little crazy when it come to taking pictures and recording their little ones, but you know what? It's absolutely worth it. I feel like, even though I have thousands of baby pictures of my boys, I still didn't take enough. And even though we captured them on video plenty of times, it still wasn't enough!
There is absolutely nothing more amazing or magical than hearing your baby laughing or seeing your children smiling. It's my most favourite sound in the whole world.
FIsher-Price just launched their new Laugh & Learn site where your children can watch webisodes, play fun games, meet the Laugh & Learn characters, enjoy fun apps about what's new and upcoming from Fisher-Price, and more. My little niece and nephew just love the webisodes.They're fun and educational at the same time—bonus! It's also adorable to see them laughing and singing along with the webisodes, too.
To celebrate the launch of this new site, Fisher-Price is hosting an AMAZING new contest called the Best Little Laugh! This contest will be celebrating the insanely-cute, over-the-top-adorable smiles, giggles and laughs that make us smile, too. Seriously, children laughing and babies giggling is music to my ears, and can turn any frown upside down!
To enter the contest (I'm sure you've got the perfect video or picture of your child smiling and laughing!) go to: www.fisherprice.ca/bestlittlelaugh and... good luck!
