This is Hallie. She is happy and she has an infectious laugh. This particular day, she was cutting out her Valentines and had her mouth full of carrots and we got her laughing. I like watching her laugh – her laughter spreads across her face and travels throughout her body. And it doesn’t take long before she has everyone else laughing.

I want to remember laughing Hallie before she morphs into a moody teenager and giggles like this become nonexistent. I want to remember how she laughs without being self-conscious as to what she looks like while laughing.
