Our Little Monkey

Arthur has developed quite a few hilarious personality quirks in the past few weeks. He has learned to click his tongue to the roof of his mouth, and we are convinced he is saying something in the !Kung bushman dialect. He has a ravenous appetite for solid foods, and literally dances in his chair at the feeding table. Today we started on bananas, which he gobbled down like a good little monkey. But his most unique trait is his tongue. For some reason, he has started sticking his tongue out *all* the time. He sticks it out, and it curls up to his right - never his left. Some days he moves it in and out, as if smelling the air in a snake-like manner. Because of this, we've started calling him "parseltongue" (after Harry Potter). We think, though, that it is because of all of these tongue-aerobics that he is able to eat his solids so well.
