The Best Thing in the World

The Best Thing In The World is watching your twin babies laugh at each other.

When K first started noticing faces, he would sometimes sit and laugh at H.  H would just stare back, always being slower to laugh.  Then they went through phases that included smiling at each other, sticking their hands in each other's mouths, biting each other, (Directly related to the sticking-the-hand-in-the-mouth thing,) taking toys from each other and crying, taking toys and then taking them back, climbing on each other, shoving each other out of the way, using each other's heads as drums, etc.

Now, however, we have the laughing.  They sit in their high chairs and as the meal comes to a close, they look at each other and giggle back and forth.  In their side-by-side stroller, one will peek around the divider at the other and they will both laugh.  We have a piece of 'cat furniture' that has a tunnel at just the right height for them to stand at each end, look through, and poke and laugh at each other.  (Yes, we are crazy cat people.)  It is astounding.  I am in love.
