Baby Discovers He Can Rip Paper And His Reaction Is Pure, Giggly Joy

There’s truly no better sound than a baby’s high-pitched, uncontrollable giggles.

This baby found pure joy in the simplest task: ripping up a piece of paper. In the video, the 8-month-old starts by holding a letter and looking confused while sitting on a couch. His dad then walks over and starts to help him rip the paper apart. Immediately, the giggly guy begins losing it in a fit of hysterical laughter.

With each tear of the paper, the baby’s giggles grow louder and louder. At some points, it even seems like it’s hard for the adorable little boy to catch his breath.

After a large portion of the paper is completely ripped to shreds, the dad offers his baby a larger piece of the letter that has yet to be torn.

“Look at this one, Micah,” his dad says as he presents it to the baby. He then rips that one to shreds as well.

This goes on for nearly two minutes, with Micah — the baby — gazing at his father while absolutely losing it.

Baby Breaks Into Hysterical Giggles While Ripping Father’s Job Rejection Letter

Arguably the best part about this video is that the ripped paper is actually a job rejection letter.

“I remember this from Reddit many moons ago,” one person commented. “The dad got a letter saying he didn’t get the job so he ripped it up, and this little baby thought it was great. I think the dad said he didn’t feel so bad afterwards.”

“As an adult, I’m sure we all wish we can do this with bills,” someone else added.

Others commented how beautiful it was to hear the sound of the baby’s wholesome giggles.

Micah’s father certainly appreciated his son’s comedic relief. Job rejections are never easy to receive, but it helps to have a precious baby remind you of what’s really important in life.
