Orion's laugh has once again played my little heart strings like a violin. Last night Orion was playing with a piece of paper (yeah my kid is SUPER easily entertained) while sitting on the couch next to Ashley. She kept yelling that he was going to paper cut her face and spazing out like she is apt to do. Finally, after about 5 minutes of this, she slapped the paper that Orion was playing with and it made a loud cracking noise. Orion laughed a laugh that I have never heard, but it truly was one of pure joy. Usually his laughs are somewhat short and almost seem like he's just humoring you. This one was completely different. He was laughing like a "real" person and it really was the greatest thing I have ever heard. Ashley thumped the paper again and the laughter ensued. By the end of it Ashley and I were both laughing so hard that my stomach hurt and I had tears streaming down my face. Orion was happy and having a good time. Nothing could have made my night any better than that moment..the moment I heard the laugh my son will have for the rest of his life. Oh, I almost forgot. He also started WHISTLING last night. I have no idea where it came from, but he does it on accident I think. He makes this surprised face where he makes his mouth into a little tiny "O" and lifts his eyebrows up really high. While doing that he will blow out and yesterday he whistled. He did it all evening. Now I know it was by accident, but still. I think it's pretty amazing, especially since he was able to reproduce it after he did it on accident the first time. Damn my kid rocks.
