Dear Aaron,

You know I love you right?  Well, you have a habit I really don’t love.  You love it though, so it’s hard to get upset.  You love to spit.

You first discovered you could spit at around 3 or 4 months.  You began to blow raspberries and thought it was awesome.  You blew raspberries nonstop for a few days, then just stopped doing it all together.  That’s what you do…find something you love to do, focus on it for awhile, then get over it.  I caught it on video the second time you blew raspberries.

Cute, right?

Well, I thought your spitting days were behind you until about a month ago.  You didn’t start blowing raspberries again.  No, I wouldn’t call it anything that cute.  You began to spit.  Really spit.  At first we thought it maybe felt good on your aching gums.  We’ve been waiting for those top teeth to come in for awhile, and you’ve been hurting.  But no.  You just seem to like to spit.  It’s not uncommon to have to change your shirt several times a day because it’s soaking wet.  Not from drool like most babies, but from spit.

The worst part of all the spitting is that you love to do it while you eat.  You think you are an absolute hoot.  Telling you “no” doesn’t stop it.  Pushing your high chair away doesn’t stop it.  Stopping feeding you and walking away doesn’t stop it.  You just want to spit.  Of course everyone seems to think it’s hilarious, which eggs you on even more.  So you spit and spit.  Food flies everywhere-your highchair tray, the table, on mommy, on daddy, on poor Rufio.  But you keep spitting. 

Everytime I try to get you spitting while you eat, you stop everything you are doing and ham it up for the camera.  You are so your father’s child.  Look how happy you are spitting, just because you can!

While I know you’re happy, I desperately hope this little phase passes soon.  I’m getting tired of wearing an apron to feed you!

You’re such a cute little punk.

    Dude, I can equally see why people think its cute and hilarious and why it’s annoying for you as the parents. Love that you included the videos so we could all witness it. You’re precious. Aaron is even more precious. Love all you Sheena family members!

    the first 10 seconds of this clip sound like the soundtrack to a Terrence and Philip song
