Today was my first game of peek-a-boo. Jonathan was so cute! (He hasn't really responded to any of our attempts to make him smile until about two weeks ago. )
The idea popped into my head after I buckled him into his carseat today on the way to church. He was so happy and smiley. I just had to see if he'd respond. I put my hands up in front of my face and said, "Peek-a-boo!" and waited a few moments for it to register in Jonathan's head that I was playing with him. It didn't take long. He squealed in delight and giggled and kicked. It was a sight to behold. Over and over I did it, his peels of laugher so infectious. I realized we needed to get him in the car and get him on the road so we could get to church a little early. I didn't want to stop, but it was time to go.
After we brought him home from church, I played with him again. He was so adorable! And once more I played with him as I was getting him dressed for bed after his bath. Who knew a simple game of peek-a-boo could bring such joy!
