When I had my two I loved to find new ways of making them smile. Sure you could do the bog standard kiss and a cuddle but my girl loved me singing into a giant plastic microphone and my boy? Loved me singing Wilson Phillips 'Hold On For One More Day'. I still remember each morning I would pop him the buggy, or baby bouncer, and rock him whilst singing it at the top of my lungs. He flipping loved it. Even now when he's fallen over or is feeling a bit fed up I love to sing it. Sometimes in public. Really loudly. I bet he won't like that when's 16.
Of course we can't forget the little things that other family members did to make them smile. My Dad enjoys a good raspberry sound and my Mum love speaking to them in a silly baby voice. My husband? Used to come in and go all Gruffalo. Which you would think would scare them but had quite the opposite effect.
