Pink’s baby will giggle your blues away

Some parents love the baby years — others of us are glad they’re over and don’t even want a baby fish in the house because we’re so done with it. But there’s one thing that gets even the hardest of us “oohing” and “aahing” and crying in a pile of our pre-teen’s old baby clothes: baby giggles.

Yesterday, Pink took us all there with a video of her adorable six-month-old son, Jameson.

Pink (who we at Scary Mommy can assure you gives good Instagram) posted a short video from Germany yesterday of her son cracking up while she makes a noise that can only be described as either “trying to start a car with a cold” or “bike bouncing on rutted road sneezes.” But hey — whatever gets the boy to do this works for us:

You can’t watch that video and not feel your heart swell and your ovaries tingle.

There’s something about baby laughs, isn’t there? We don’t know if it’s the way they’re so unabashedly psyched by what they’re seeing or the way those grown-up chuckles sound coming out of tiny baby mouths, but we will take them any day of the week and twice on Sundays. I personally had a baby who would squeal like an asthmatic pig (but cuter) when he laughed, and I would make him laugh so much, just so I could hear it, that we would both end up peeing our pants.

Totally. Worth. It.

This isn’t the first time Pink has used her Instagram for the powers of motherhood good and not evil. She has shared photos supporting National Breastfeeding Week, showing us the ideal way to mom in the summer, and sending us some body-positive post-baby love. She seemed to know that what the world needs now is wee babies cracking up at their moms, and since this video has now been viewed over 625,000 times, it seems we all agree.
