Your Laughter Will Be My Laughter: Reflections of a Grandmother
Wightman, Barbara
Zero to Three (J), v24 n3 p38-42 Jan 2004
Navajos believe that there are four discrete moments when the spirit enters the human baby: first at conception, again when the mother first feels movement, at birth when baby draws his first breath, and finally, when the baby first laughs. The author, an occupational therapist in early intervention, uses these four key moments as a framework to describe her experiences as a first-time grandmother.
