One of the most precious things I’ve ever seen is the sight of E playing with R and successfully making her laugh. R has a wonderful laugh–if I do say so myself–very giddy and infectious, but it is not particularly easy to make her laugh without tickling her. But E manages to make her laugh quite often. Usually this is just because R finds E quite entertaining, maybe because they’re both children and thus share that childhood connection, but sometimes it’s because E is actually trying to play with her and make her laugh. Like playing peek-a-boo.
It’s one of my favorite things in the world to see.
