Lili's New Game

Lili and I have a new game.

We had a girls night while Matt went to softball last night (which lasted about an hour before she crashed, but still). I chase her and she runs and giggles. I hide in the kitchen and she looks over her shoulder until I pop out and look at her with that I'm-Gonna-Get-You look and make tickle fingers (you know, you move your fingers like you are tickling someone).

She then dissolves into giggles as she runs from me. She flings herself against the cushions of the couch and laughs, hides her face, and climbs up while I say "I'm gonna get you". I then start tickling until she collapses on the couch, on her back laughing and giggling, with a huge smile on her face as she tries to push me away with her feet. I tickle her for about a minute, let her up and she runs to the kitchen. All the while looking over her shoulder. Then the game starts again.

We did this for about 30 minutes until she laughed so hard she spit up. It took her by surprise, but she didn't cry. She just bounced up and tried to get me to get her again. I decided at that point she had really had enough and didn't know it. So we played on the floor with her toys.
