I woke up at 3:30, and unable to get back to sleep, I decided to have some quiet-time at Amazon. I don't do this often, because it makes me wish I were rich.

Anyway, as I've been drooling over books for the past hour, I have listened to Thomas giggling. He is not awake. He has been a nocturnal giggler ever since he was a tiny tot. Bob and I have often giggle along with him, because the giggles he has in his sleep are so cute, so child-like and innocent.

All frustrations I had this morning at my inability to get back to sleep have disappeared. Instead, I sit here with a huge grin on my face listening to the night-time giggles.

We have asked him about his dreams many times, to understand what he's laughing at, but he never remembers.

His giggles are contageous.

P used to giggle a bit in her sleep, but I don't think she does it anymore. I'm glad you enjoyed it instead of stressing about not sleeping. ;-)

This is interesting.

My husband sometimes goes so far as to laugh out loud in his sleep, and I thought him very unique. He, also, can never tell me what made him do so, even when he wakes himself up laughing! Whatever it is, it must be great fun.

Adorable. :) My Stiggy does this sometimes.

Ri does this, and it melts my heart. I love to watch her sleep anyway, but when she giggles I am totally in love with her all over again.

That was a truly wonderful story to read about.

This is awesome. My Cadence laughs out loud - great, solid belly laughs - in her sleep. It's hysterical to listen to: Mumble mumble, HAHAHAHA! Mumble mumble.

Even when it's quiet in the house and the sound startles you a bit at first, it's nice when it's a happy noise.

My kids will talk and walk in their sleep, no giggling.

Thank you for stopping by and the kind words.
