I'm Sure It's Because He's a Baby, Not an Indicator of Intelligence

Lumpyhead often shoves things into his mouth and gags himself. Repeatedly. His fingers, a spoon, or any part of a toy that he can maneuver far enough into his piehole will cause that awful retching noise.

Him: "Ack"
Me: "Don't stick that in so far."
Him: [blinking]
Me: "Better?"
Him: "Ack"
Me: [remove item]

I hope he'll catch on soon to the cause of the gagging, and stop. He hasn't thrown up yet, but I'm worried he's on track to becoming a cheerleader.


He also thwacks himself in the head from time to time.

Him: [thunk.] [annoyed squeal]
Me: "Yeah, that was you. Don't do that."
Him: [flail, flail . . .thunk.] [angry squeal]
Me: [sigh]

At least he's using both arms for the clunking, so I don't have to worry about the one-sided cerebral palsy thing.

Ian does that too. It must be a boy thing.
