Last night Jayden laughed in a way he never has before.
Full on little kid giggles.
I can't even fully describe what it felt like to hear it. Kind of like my heart was going to explode with love. I actually laughed and got teary at the same time. It was amazing. The best sound I have heard in my entire life.
I kept him doing it long enough for my Mom, my Dad, and my sister to all hear it over the phone.
Times like these feel like little glimpses into the future. I all of a sudden pictured him as a little kid laughing at something I said.
Adam and I talked about it and he also couldn't get over what a big kid Jayden sounded like.
It reminded us of when he was 4 months old and he started randomly saying "Hi." He obviously did it without having any meaning behind it, but it was so incredible to hear him saying a real word. One time he grabbed his play mirror and said "Hi" when he looked into. Adam and I died laughing.
These moments are so brief but they always have me imagining what Jayden will be like when he is older.
