If You Need a Laugh...

I went to Google and asked it if laughing is good for you health?

A couple of many comments:

(1) "Try to find the funny side of the small things that happen every day around you, there is always something absurd or plain stupid going on right near you, which may provide five minutes of good laughter."

Grandpa Dennis says that Elijah qualifies for that. The video was 4:56 minutes.

(2) "We change physiologically when we laugh. We stretch muscles throughout our face and body, our pulse and blood pressure go up, and we breathe faster, sending more oxygen to our tissues."

(3) Laughter connects us with others."

(4) "Laughter enhances your intake of oxygen rich air which stimulates your heart, lungs and muscles, and increases the endorphins that are released by your brain."

Grandpa Dennis says "Good job Elijah, you are always teaching us."

Love Grandpa Dennis

I can't think of much that is more enjoyable than to watch a child laugh. He was so tickled and there were several very positive development signs I observed.

Elijah is right-handed.
He could clearly see the spoon.
He recognized what made the sound and knew how to replicate it.
He displayed good gross motor skills.
Elijah has a sense of humor.

I think that video said volumes about the progress that Elijah has made. I truly enjoyed it. Thank you for sharing.

WHAT A DOLL! His mannerisms remind me so much of my daughter, Faith, when she was his age. He sure is a looker and what a sense of humor. Now for his birthday you'll have to invest in a nice set of spoons!
