According to Hillsong Faith, “Baptism declares that you are a follower of Jesus Christ. It is a public confession of your faith in, and commitment to, Jesus Christ. It is the next step after salvation through repentance and faith and is an important foundation for the Christian life.”

While most babies sleep or cry during their baptism, this adorable baby was thoroughly entertained.

The minister, too, couldn’t resist being captivated by the adorable distraction.

It’s indeed a positive sign, perhaps hinting at Marcus’s potential to avoid crying during the actual baptism, a common occurrence when water is poured on a baby’s head.

But what’s the real reason behind a baby’s laugh?

Experts believe that humor often involves presenting something familiar in an unexpected or offbeat way.

Very young babies typically don’t have a developed sense of humor because they are still learning about the world in its regular context.

Initially, a baby’s laughter is often a response to physical stimuli, like the sensation of bouncing on a knee.

As babies grow and gather more information about the world, usually around 6 months, they start finding joy in the unexpected.

Funny sounds or games like patty-cake and peekaboo become sources of laughter because they present something a little new and different, yet still somewhat familiar.

At this stage, infants delight in experiences that deviate from their ordinary routines.

Whatever the real reason may be behind a baby’s laughter, we can all agree that the sound of a baby’s laugh is so infectious.
