Sometimes I get shocked at how Munchkin behaves or reacts to situations, take when he wants to feed, he yawns then has certain mouth movements, in fact at his current age he makes a certain protest like noise with it getting louder, as a second passes by, to get my attention. If he could make a placard, it would read:
Oops I am sorry I digress, did you know that some babies get shocked at their own fart?? Don’t laugh its really true. When Munchkin was a little younger (he is now a mini grown up) he would fart and let out a cry. I always thought he was feeling pain or had a tummy upset, too much gas maybe, but it turned out that he was shocked by the loud noise he let out. Now I can laugh about it, that time it was a bit stressful though. He is so shocked when I sneeze or cough, clap my hands or start talking after a long silence, he sometimes cries like he has been spanked by his mummy.
The best story that shocked him was once when I was changing him and I turned to pick his bum oil, it was just a few seconds, he let out a loud cry and of course I turned back in panic wondering what had happened. I found water all over his face and I picked him up, calming him down, as I tried to find out where the water came from and how it poured on him. He relaxed and stopped crying and I wiped his little cute, chubby face. You can imagine my surprise when it hit me, it was his own pee, ha ha ha ha I laugh at that experience until today. I think he panicked when he felt pee all over his face and probably it entered his nose as well, poor boy (as I laugh at him). Indeed boys will truly be boys, even when they are a few months old. The good thing is I know he will be good at Math, with angles and all…
Munchkin, what was Mummy’s life like before you?
