Hilarity in Parenting

Sweet Precious Boy
So Baby B does a lot of grunting. He sounds like he's channeling the velociraptor made famous in the first Jurassic Park. Sometimes it's accompanied with little baby farts, sometimes little baby farts plus little baby poop, or sometimes he does it just for amusement of his doting parents.

Being that I am a Google freak, I Googled grunting baby and found an enlightening article about Grunting Baby Syndrome. And then I proceeded to laugh my face off. Apparently, GBS - as it's commonly referred to - occurs when a baby will "push, squeeze, grunt, change color and carry on only to produce a soft bowel movement." This is not what had me laughing, as I figured this was most likely the cause of our little grunter's issues anyway. What cracks me up is the supposed cure for GBS that involves inducing a bowel movement using a cotton swab. This results in...brace yourself...an anal wink. HA! Analwinkanalwinkanalwink. He he he. I am still giggling.

I guess we'll take a little grunter over an anal winker any day.
