A baby’s giggle can sometimes be all it takes to make a bad day better. Our brains respond to their unadulterated joy in a unique way, and we typically can’t help but smile or laugh back.
The actual reason we find babies so wonderful may be the simple truth that their joy originates from a completely innocent and pure place — there are no hidden meanings or messages to understand when dealing with an infant, whether it’s due to natural selection or psychology.
It usually doesn’t take much to make a baby laugh – a simple game of peek-a-boo or simply making a comical face will usually result in a slobbery grin. And when another infant gets involved, like in this video, the effects are almost too adorable to bear.
