There has been a lot of negativity on the good ol' blog lately. I consider myself a generally upbeat and optimistic person. So in order to take it up a few happy notches, allow me to share with you a funny moment from a couple of weeks ago.
Lately, Will has taken to giving what I call "Wisses." These are his very own, absolutely adorable version of kisses: Will + Kisses = Wisses. He will grab the face of the person that has been kissing him with both pudgy hands and bring them into his mouth-range. He then opens wide and slobbers all over chin, nose, cheek, or if you are really feeling friendly, right in your mouth! He doesn't suck while he is doing it and he makes this little hmmm-hmmm noise to go with them, which echoes the muwhah-muwhah noise that I make when I give him kisses.
One night, I was sitting on the couch with Will shortly after his early evening feed. We were enjoying some Wissing Time and my husband was watching with a hint of jealously in his eye (at first, Wisses were only reserved for Mommy). So, I said, "Would you like to give some Wisses to Daddy?"
My husband eagerly opened his arms to take our son. Will came up close, grabbed M's face and
. . . proceeded to upchuck the entire contents of his stomach all over his cheek, down his chin, dribbling onto his t-shirt. It was by far the most impressive spit-up that Will has ever had - Will rarely spits up, so this made it even more funny! I was in hysterics.
I wanted to grab the camera, but M wasn't too pleased and flatly refused a picture. I still have the image in my head, however, and it is priceless!
The good news is that Will has since learned to give Wisses to any adoring audience member that happens to get close enough, so M has had the pleasure of a spit-up-less Wiss. And even M laughs now when we tell the stories of M's first Wiss.
