I'm sure she will kill me one day for posting this...
Aves is a big cuddler. Also, she is cuddly. So, cuddles with Aves are win-win.
Tonight, at bedtime, Aves was a bit upset because she has a raw spot forming below her lower lip from constantly licking her lips. I put some salve on it to help heal. It stung a bit and she was crying. She was laying down, so I lay down alongside her, like I was spooning her, and cuddled with her to make her feel better.
After a few seconds, she stopped right in the middle of her cry, turned over so her butt faced the other way and said, "Just a second, Mommy, I have to fart.". She paused long enough to expel her gases. Then she flipped back over to continue cuddling with me! As she snuggled into me she said, "That was a great fart". I couldn't help but burst out laughing. She was very serious and very confused by my laughter!
In the end, I'm not sure whether it was my cuddling or her 'great fart" that made her feel better, but she stopped crying. So, I guess it doesn't matter as long as she felt better!
