No, we dislike heavy metal music. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
Despite that, Gavin seems to get great enjoyment over, well, headbutting. He'll headbutt the kitties, he'll headbutt daddy, he'll headbutt the *wall* when we're in bed and he's playing around, and he'll try to headbutt the rats through their cage! I think he probably picked it from the kitties, who will nudge you with their head if they demand attention, but who knows.<br><br>
Headbutting daddy or the wall reduces him into a fit of giggles. If it's the wall, he'll headbutt it, giggle, look at me and giggle some more and repeat the process until I drag him away. If I don't get him giggling at some other activity, he'll immediately crawl back to the wall.<br><br>
Thankfully it appears as if inherited my SO's really hard head (figuretively AND literally hehehe) but I just cannot take the sound, so I won't let him do it against the wall.<br><br>
Am I the only one with the little weirdo who enjoys headbutting or is this some untalked about stage of life? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused">:

Just found this thread now or I would have responded sooner...my 26 month-old little boy has a variation on head-butting. He uses his head as a drum! He just slaps away on his head like a bongo drum when he's dancing, listening to music, gets excited about something....it's so funny to watch! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Nope, your not alone! yana age 2 loves to headbutt. And savy around that age used to bang his head against the wall, I use to wonder about his mental development. Thankfully he outgrew it but Yana busted her granddaddy's lip just days ago with a headbutt.
