Awesome

Woke up at 5:30 a.m. Doesn't sound so awesome so far, does it? Here's the awesome: the sound that woke me up was Riley laughing, a deep belly laugh IN HIS SLEEP. He laughed for a few seconds, then it was all silent until 6:15 a.m. It was fan-freaking-tastic.

my brother did this, too! he must have been about 4 or 5 .. but it woke me up and it was hysterical!

ben was talking in his sleep a couple weeks ago .. he kept saying "guh-guh" and GRINNING .. which means he was dreaming about his favorite little tank engine, thomas!

SO cute! I don't have kids, but my chocolate lab puppy did something similar yesterday! I was watching the Polar Express with my nephew. There is a part when caribou cover the train tracks and one of the engineers screams. She made this HILARIOUS screaming, groan in her sleep for about 30 seconds straight. As soon as the guy on tv stopped, so did she!

Cuuute!!! So awesome! I sometimes wake up snickering quietly, but never have I been told I had a big belly laugh while sleeping. Sounds great!

I love it! I bet it isn't long until Maddie starts laughing with him!

My husband laughs in his sleep ALL the time.

I also read a book, The Opposite of Love, where she asks, 'how can I be with a man who laughs in his sleep? I'm too cynical to be around a man like that.' Thought that was funny.

A child laughing is priceless, and child laughing in his sleep - nothing better!

Too cute!!

I am also glad to hear that Thanksgiving went so well. It is SO hard as a mom to ask for help but the more you do it, it does get easier.
