Not really sure where to post this. My ds 10 months absolutely loves it when I pretend to sneeze. He particularly gets giggly when I go 'ahh tissue'. I love his laugh and it makes me feel all warm inside to see him so happy (pass the suck bucket I know). Just wanted to know what makes your dc laugh and brightens your day, even when they have tried your patience.
DS is 2.5yo and yesterday got the belly laughs when i copied the sound of the stones he was throwing into the water depending on their size. Little stone = "plip!" Big stone = "Plop!" Lots of stones = "Plip, plip, plop, plop, plip!" He thought it was hilarious. The day before that he got the giggles knocking over a toy giraffe with a ball and then kissing it better.
Funny faces etc. (no real pattern to which one would work on a given day!) when DD was really little. Now she's a bit older (3.6) she will sometimes start chuckling out of the blue because she's remembered something she found funny, which is really cute! So this morning on the way to nursery she started to describe a bit from Ice Age that she'd found particularly funny, and then started chuckling away again just from remembering it .
Oh yes my DS also loved us pretend sneezing for ages! Especially if you ham it up a lot and go "Ah, ah, ah....<pause> achooooooo!" He also went through a phase of laughing if we said "CD" for some reason!
At the moment the stuff that will get him in stitches is pulling a face and going "bleeeeeeeeeeurgh" (which I was doing to try and get the point across that he couldn't play with the bag of wipes, because they were dirty). So now he points at the bag of used wipes and goes "bluuurgh" himself, so funny.
This morning he was having a stop having his nappy changed and trying to pull his onesie down over himself so I couldn't get access. So I started saying "where is your belly button?" while trying to pull the front of the onesie up. He kept pulling it back down and I kept saying "where is your belly button?" which had him hysterical with laughter.
Pulling socks off, hers or ours, and wrapping them around her head. And the pet ferret trying to pull off her socks. She loves picking up shoes and wearing them as gloves. A shoe fetish already at one year old!
She'll inexpertly cover herself with snuggle bunny/mum-mum's dressing gown/plate/whatever's to hand (with most of her person sticking out of said object), we will exclaim "goodness, where has DD gone, she has completely vanished" etc..., DD will go for the big reveal and laugh like a drain.
A couple of nights ago, it was dropping a bath-toy in the bath from a height, so it splashed DS (10 months). Laughed and laughed and laughed. The next night, nada. Instead, it was saying 'ma-na-ma-na....doo-doo-di-doo-doo' (think muppets) over and over. You feel like the king of the world when you make them laugh so much, don't you?
