Mama, the whoopee cushion

Ava has recently discovered that mama’s boobs are not only a great source of nutrition, a great comfort, and great pillows, they also make great WHOOPEE CUSHIONS!

We were going to bed several weeks ago, and instead of just lying next to me nursing happily as she drifted off to sleep like usual, she decided to do some acrobatic nursing. In the midst of her moving around while staying firmly latched onto my breast, she discovered that if she rolled her head from side to side, she could make wonderful fart noises. Of course, she doesn’t think of them as fart noises (yet), but she enjoys making them nonetheless. And I have to admit to cracking up while she’s done it on more than one occasion. One time I even had to call Jody into the room so he could hear his daughter’s new trick cuz every dad is proud of their kid making fart noises, right?

So just about every night as we lay down to bed, we are lulled to sleep by the sound flappy, often wet-sounding farts. Ahhh, just one of the many perks for nursing a toddler. ;)
