the first giggle

A baby’s first giggle is like an addictive drug. It provides a high so thrilling as soon as you come back down you start dreaming of your next fix. You go to extreme measures to experience it again. For awhile it’s all you can think about.
The difference though, is that the ecstasy doesn’t diminish after the first time. That is to say, with my third child the thrill was just as intense when I heard her first laugh as it was with my first and second.
