Yelp. This Is My All Time Favorite Sound.

down syndrome kid laughing one year old

One of my favorite things about our home is how much laughter fills it. I love laughter.  And I especially love hearing the sweet sound of our one year old laughing!

I can’t get enough of hearing this little boy laugh. I could seriously listen to what your about to hear on this video ALL. DAY. LONG.  Click play on the video below to hear for yourself. Warning: it’s contagious!

It’s The Simple Things.

I love how it’s just the simple things that make him laugh. As you can see in this video all I’m doing to make him laugh is through a big blue ball up into the air. I try to look for ways to make him laugh every. single. day. No matter all bad of a day I’m having, all I have to do is hear that laugh and things are better.

This kid has always had a fun personality. I remember when he was only six months old he make these funny mouth sounds, which grew into the laugh that I love so much. Now that’s he’s a little older his laugh is so much bigger, and  e’s even able to laugh out loud while we play together. I love it!

Man, oh man. Life is good.

Hi, I'm Noah's Dad and I'm passionate about giving the world a window into our life as we raise our son who was born with Down syndrome. I also enjoy connecting with other families, so let's stay connected.

    Shouldn’t Noah’s little brother be here very soon?

  2. Thank you for this reminder to enjoy the simple things! I have a 6 month old boy (also named Noah!) with Down syndrome. He has just started to “laugh” which sounds more like a cross between a cough and a groan, but the way he lights up when he does it makes my day. Your blog has been a great resource and encouragement to me since my son was born. Thanks!
