Hysterical Giggles

Last night I was showing Jared the little dance that Charlotte was doing when I went in to get her from her nap, and Charlotte went into hysterical giggling. It was absolutely hilarious hearing her laugh so hard. Jared said the only thing funnier would be to secretly film me doing her little dance. He better not! I had the camera up on the entertainment center, which I was using to balance myself, so my fingers get in the way every now and then, but you can still see and hear how excited she was.

Oh, and we have a new pet... A very unwelcome one. A few days ago I saw a lizard running around on the wall in our living room, the next day he was in the dining room, and the past two days I've seen him in Charlotte's room. Unfortunately, only one sighting has been when Jared (the official lizard catcher of the family) was home, and the sneaky little guy managed to get away and hide somehow. If it was a spider I would chase it and kill it, but I don't want to clean up lizard guts, and I'm most certainly not going to touch him with bare hands. So for now he's getting a nice air-conditioned vacation.

That is the cutest laugh I have ever heard! I couldn't help but laugh! Thanks for sharing! Anson is going to love this one! By the way, we have had a pet spider by our fireplace for the past few days and Anson has named it "Baby Charlotte"!

Hahaha... You never know what's going to come next with him, do you? :)

That giggle is absolutely infectious!!! I LOVE it :)
BTW-you need a big plastic bowl to put over Mr. Lizard when he's out in the open and a piece of thin cardboard to slide under the bowl and cover it. Then you can set him free outside and avoid lizard guts (eewwww!) Good luck!

I was laughing along with Charlotte! That was so cute!

Stephanie is right...a bowl is good and if you don't have the cardboard at least you'll know where your friend is when Jared gets home. :)

This is SO adorable! I'm gonna send you a message on facebook about your video camera and how you get stuff to Youtube - ours is a way complicated process which = never posting video.

I just love this. I revisited today just to hear it again. These times are so precious. There is nothing like your kids (even my teenagers) laughing like that for real.

Brittany-

what about Mr. Lizard...
Did he stay? Did he go?
We just have to know!

PS-we, too, have visited this post often...Wyatt LOVES to laugh along with Charlotte's giggles :)

I have to listen everyday. I pull it up first thing in a.m. when I get to work, just to start my day w/ her giggles.
