I have written often about LTD’s strong desire to put everything that exists on the planet Earth in his mouth. It’s no secret that he explores his world through his mouth but things have gotten ridiculous. Today he folded himself in half in order to put his big toe in his gaping maw. I am happy to report he was successful, but since it may have had a dog hair on it from the floor I am also not happy to report it. Another thing he does that cracks me up is that he will reach for something, my finger for instance, and even if he doesn’t actually grab it he will bring his hands to his mouth. It is cute and perhaps a little sad that the little guy thinks he is holding something but in reality he missed. I call this the Phantom Mouth Maneuver (patent pending).
I would also be remiss if I didn’t mention that he is starting to not only put things in his mouth but to put things out as well. In this case, the “thing” being his tongue. I don’t want to tell tales out of school, but that puppy is long. I’m talking Gene Simmons territory. Additionally, he has slowly started a practice of licking things, mostly my arm. So between the toes and the tongue, The Mommy and I have been busy keeping things dry and keeping things out of reach.
