Yeah, its normal. My 11 month old started experimenting in this way a couple of weeks ago. If he continues/persists beyond one or two times or seems to be getting himself upset about it, I gently direct his hands away to another activity, and/or remind him that we don't want to gag ourselves - that it doesn't feel good on our throats.
Don't make a big deal out of it - redirection really is key. I'm sure baby will grow out of it.
