When you’re happy

and you know it  – Clap your hands. This is what i sing to my little taddies. They love to clap their hands but haven’t understood the connection between being happy and expressing it by clapping their hands. They show their happiness in much more unique ways.

 Twin1’s method is to crawl across the room as quickly as possible but his crawling is not  your garden variety crawling..oh no..he adds his personal touch to it by placing one hand across the other and swaying his head from side to side doing the best imitation of a little dancing Chinese dragon i have ever seen. You have to see it to believe it.

Twin2 shows his happiness by shaking his head from side to side. We get giddy looking at him but he shakes his head for so long and with such vigour that sometimes i’m afraid it might fall off.Play a little music and twin2 will do his little dance of bouncing up and down accompanied by his head shake. What can i say..he has natural rhythm.

These are their favourite methods of showing their happiness. They also love to roll over each other and crawl all over with their heads to the ground like little moles. I fear for their safety and watch carefully that they dont bang into the furniture but i dont stop them.

And finally when twin2 is overwhelmed with happiness and cant contain his joy he comes to take a big bite out of mamma. I have lots of little teeth marks all over my body. I may be scarred for life  but since they are the proof of my baby’s happiness, i wouldnt have it any other way!

    This was such a lovely post!!! Reminded me of the time when I would wait to see silly antics by my sons, just so I could hold those precious moments in my heart for all the years that were to follow.
