Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Sounds


This will be a busy day for us; the kids & I are off this morning to get their pictures taken. We haven't done it with Wendy since her first birthday, and the only professional pictures we have of David are from the hospital. Since his 3-month is close to her 3-year, we're taking them together.

I was thinking the other day about the sounds that I love, that are the sounds of "contentment" to me. Since I don't have much time this morning, I'll share with you a list of my favorite sounds, in no particular order:

1. Wendy giggling

2. David laughing

3. baby sneezes

4. the white-noise of the baby monitor when the kids are asleep

5. the domestic, homey sounds of the dishwasher, washing machine & dryer all running at once

6. purring cats

7. the first frogs every spring

8. any music by Casting Crowns

9. crackling campfire

10. baby hiccups

What sounds like "contentment" to you?

Beautiful! I *so* know the contended sound of the white nosise machine, the dishwasher and the washing machine!

*happy sigh*

My sounds of contentment include, "Honey, I'm home!" and "I love you, Mawmaw."

I would agree with the dishwasher and washing machine...it kind of sounds like you have accomplished getting something done and can sit rested! Hope you are doing well!

Because of our floor plan, the dishwasher, washing machine and dryer are all in the same room, and that is too much noise for me all at once. So that wouldn't make my list. But the giggles, the hiccups, those definitely make my top ten!

Corban's giggle is definitely number one. But some of my other favorites are waves or running water, the clink of ice in a glass and the sound shellfish makes when you throw it in a pot.
