So, it's been puzzling me lately how my 3 month old has these weird habits that I can't seem to keep him from. One in particular is both cute and extremely annoying. I can't seem to figure out what's causing him to want to do this, but when he cries, is uncomfortable or is "searching" for something (like a boob, lol) he does is strange "cat grooming thing". You know, like when cats lick their paws and then rub all around their face and head...only he doesn't do the licking part.
He goes in a semi-circle from the top of his forehead, down his face around the side and up and behind his head....and in reverse. He often times pulls his hair and scratches his face in the process :(. No matter how I cut his nails, he can't not do it. If he's not wearing socks or gloves on his hands, I have to sometimes hold his arm or hand (or let him hold my finger).
.........Oh and here's another.... When he gets upset (even just for 30 seconds) or cries, he starts sweating PROFUSELY! YUCK! .. Just like his dad...lol ♥
