Sometimes all it takes to turn the day around is hearing a baby laugh. Their undiminished joy triggers a unique response in our brains and we often can’t help but smile or laugh back at them.
Whether by natural selection or psychology, the real reason we find newborn babies so precious may simply be because their joy comes from a place of complete innocence and purity – There are no hidden meanings or messages to interpret when dealing with newborns.
Usually, it doesn’t take much to make your baby laugh: using the tried-and-true game of hide-and-seek or simply making funny faces is sure to make you drool with laughter. And when another baby gets involved, as this video shows, the results are almost too cute to handle.
Placed face to face in their cribs, twins Peyton and Brennan learn a valuable new tool, calling and responding to another human being. Besides the constant advances in brain development, we love their cuteness.
