Why are babies fixated on noses? Is it that they protrude from faces and are easy to grab?

My 9 month old niece thinks it’s great fun to grab a handful of nose and Honk it as hard as she can.

I don’t have an especially large nose, and neither does either of her parents, yet she seems to find this activity absolutely hilarious.

Hair, glasses and sweatshirt strings are also always up for grabs, but none are near as funny to her as the nose.

She is one of the lights of my life and part of what makes the walk with this mental illness bearable. Spending time with her and her sister is definitely a form of self care for me. They are a hoot!

Inspired by the daily prompt: Honk
