I wish I’d taken a video of Audrey giggling tonight at dinner. But I was pretty sure as soon as I got the video camera she’d stop.
We were singing Old MacDonald Had a Farm- one of her new favorites and I was joking saying he had a penguin. Then she out of nowhere, said “a penguin buries carrots.” So I said, “What?” And she just kept repeating it and laughing hysterically at how funny she was.
Tonight after she was in her crib for a while- I heard her giggle on the monitor and I had a feeling she was thinking of that. Then she giggled again. Then she said it, “Penguin buries carrots,” and laughed some more. I loved imagining her thoughts right before drifting off to sleep.
But it was one of those moments where I had no one to turn to- and not just anyone, but really just you- and smile and laugh and marvel at our little girl together. I just looked up at the ceiling and shook my head as if to say, how can you be missing this?
