Making her laugh

My latest obsession is making Matilda laugh. I'll do anything to hear even the smallest chuckle. Some tricks that do the trick:

1. Swirling my pointer fingers in circles and softly saying "I'm gonna get you." She usually gives a little giggle before I go to work tickling, blowing, smiling.

2. Going in real quick for a tickle under the chin. This maneuver has resulted in the loudest belly laughs.

3. Today I discovered that hovering over her and bobbing up and down while saying "one...two...three" and then blowing on her belly works quite nicely.

Last night Sam got the loudest laugh thus far. I must beat him...
