Max has been affectionate from the first day we knew him. That isn't, actually a good sign in kids with attachment issues. It means they aren't discriminating when it comes to bestowing affection.
Max, though, as willing as he was to wrestle, snuggle, hug, be carried, hated to watch people kiss on TV/in movies and hated to hear about kissing in books. He'd groan and cover his face. He'd turn away and be very theatrical.
It got to be a joke. "Look away, Max! They're going to kiss!" At first, he heeded these warnings. He looked away. He hid his eyes. He covered his ears.
Lately, though, I've noticed he doesn't. He looks at us like we're kind of crazy and then looks back at the show. Hmmm. It's interesting.
