On Sunday Beck giggled for the first time. I was tickling his chin which made him smile and smile, then he laughed! So cute! He would love little old ladies who come up and say "Coochy, coochy, coo!" Beck would smile and laugh.
Last night Annika was looking around the kitchen and suddenly her little hands went up to her mouth. "Oh, no!" she exclaimed, "Where heck towel went?" Now it was my turn to have a hearty belly laugh.
Update 2/21/08: "Heck" is now a fixture in Annika's vocabulary. She has also said, "Where heck baby?" and "Where heck flowers go?"
At moments like these I am so glad that I don't swear, although I'm thinking I may use "heck" too much.
