tickle spot

I found Charlie's tickle spot! As we played the Wake-Me-Up-And-I'll-Tickle-You game with Alec, Charlie wanted in on the action. I gave him a thorough tickle and instead of just smiling and walking away, Charlie hunched his shoulders, curled up and laughed! It was so fun to hear. (Especially since most of the sounds out of his mouth lately have been seemingly urgent, shrill screams... teething?) The sweet spot is right on his neck/shoulders. Ahh... so rewarding. It only took me a year to find. That's right, Charlie will be 1 this week. CRAZY. Here is a picture of the tickle spot, in all its cute, baby-chub glory.

Now that you have found his funny bone, everything should be looking up! And we will miss not being in on the birthday celebration this week. Have a great one, and be sure to post lots of pics.
