Eskimo kisses and crinkle faces

I haven't posted about Little Elvis' newest antics recently, so I thought it was time to update everyone.

He's still really into clapping, waving and shaking his head 'no.' But he's added a couple of new tricks to his repertoire -- eskimo kissing and crinkling up his little face and making a "shsh" noise.

The eskimo kissing is basically him shaking his head while leaning in to touch noses. It's extremely cute, and I haven't been able to catch it on video.

But I got a great snapshot of the crinkle face! This is the funniest, cutest little face. He sometimes just does it while walking around. If you blow in his face, or he feels a gust of wind on his face, he will also break out the crinkle. My dad had been blowing on his face when I snapped this shot.
He loves doing the eskimo kisses and crinkles, but he's also stumbled upon some not-so-fun things -- merry-go-rounds and swings.
I took him on a merry-go-round while we were visiting my family and he got so scared! He didn't cry out, but his little body tensed and he got splotchy. His little heart was also hammering. The nice lady running the merry-go-round stopped it and let us sit on a bench before she started it back up.
We discovered the swing fear on Monday afternoon. We took him on a walk to the little park we visited regularly this summer. He always seemed to enjoy the swings, but he had the same reaction to the swing as he did to the merry-go-round. Poor little guy. I guess we'll have to re-introduce him to the swing gradually.

He is totally cute!! Look at that crinkle face - priceless!

Oh and my oldest (he's almost 13) does the same thing on swings and rides. I think it's an inner ear thing. He just can't handle it.

Hi laskigal, thanks for visiting! Little Elvis was born Feb. 11 last year.
Shay, I didn't even think of inner ear issues. He's been sticking his fingers in his ears a lot lately. I'll have to remember to talk to our doc about that.
And ann(ie), Little Elvis is a biter too. I blame it on cutting teeth, but I think he just enjoys the reaction he gets.
