Somebody needs to figure out how to bottle this stuff...
The ancient asian cultures theorized that the matter all around us was composed of five basic elements: fire, water, earth, wood, and metal. Whether or not this is true, with Katelyn's latest antics, I have discovered a sixth: elemental joy.
She has recently learned a whole range of new vocabulary, and we were becoming accustomed to seeing the startled look on her face when a brand new sound left her lips. But it was another thing entirely when she discovered she could laugh--that might have been the most amazing sound I have ever heard! I could have sat and made my little girl laugh until Kingdom Come.
It is said the simplest things in life are always the best. Whoever said that must have had a little girl, too.
