My 8-week-old son tries to fit his fist up his nose (that's what it looks like). He makes a fist and forcefully pushes it toward his nose or just to the sides or under, shaking his head and making a grunting / growling sound. It is quite funny to watch. I've started to wonder what the heck he is actually trying to do...
