It has been over 4 years since our second youngest child was a baby, and we had forgotten how funny babies can be. Tonight while our nearly-six-month-old Charis was sitting beside me in the living room, she just started opening and closing her mouth, and noticed the smacking noise she could make with her lips. Now, after a bit of practice, this seems like a fun way to entertain herself. She also used it to get my attention, and the smile on her face betrayed her self-satsfaction over acheiving her goal. It is just fun to watch her and appreciate all the little things she learns in a day that will eventually serve her in some useful way (or maybe not so useful, but you know what I mean).
