Yes, that’s not a typo … I really meant to write “laughing IN loud”. This is Nicholas’ current way to laugh … while breathing in. It’s kinda like that Dairy Queen commercial that’s on right now – the one where the actors are eating the flamethrower burgers – they have to breath in while speaking because when they do breath out, flames come shooting out of their mouths. It’s really funny to listen to him, although at first I thought he was choking on something. Now I’m used to it.
I was just talking to a friend on the phone when Nicholas did it, and my friend was very concerned. “What on earth was that?!?” he asked. “Oh, just my child,” I replied. Strangest sound you’ve ever heard, trust me! Unfortunately, he doesn’t do it “on cue”, so I can’t catch it on video (unless it’s fluke).
