Veda Saves Mankind

So the other day I was telling Veda that she should really stop crying, because if she didn't I would have to tell everyone I know that this whole baby thing isn't all it's cracked up to be, and then *they* would tell everyone *they* knew, and so on and so forth until next thing you know word gets around and nobody's having babies at all.

Widespread abstinence. Zero population growth. The demise of the human race.

Real nice, Veda.

I don't think she really bought into my line of reasoning, though, because although she did eventually stop crying and finally went to sleep, it honestly seemed to have little to do with my apocalyptic threats and more to do with my figuring out how to adjust the light/temperature/sound/etc in her room, as well as the food/burps/fluids in her body. That always does the trick.

Still, just yesterday she seemed to be making efforts to preserve our species through her own estimable personal charm. And it totally worked - watch this video, featuring Lope pretending to sneeze and Veda finding it absolutely hilarious - and see if it doesn't make you like babies a little more.

Then go forth, friends, and reproduce with impunity. You've got my endorsement... and Veda's.

Baby laughter is the best sound I have ever heard! Never really thought that until I had my own though...
