I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that my Grandson loves his mommy very, very much. He cannot get enough of her, especially when bed-time comes around. That's when he will gor-nyior her. 

For the uninitiated, gor-nyior was a term used by my mom (she's Nyonya so I'm assuming that this word is peculiar to the Nyonyas) to describe the way a tired or sleepy child would clamber all over a trusted, significant adult and rub his face against the person. It is an unashamedly uninhibited and absolutely raw demonstration of the child's longing and great need for the love and security that only this one special person can provide. I cannot find an English word to describe this. 

Let me show you what it looks like. 

Aww, isn't that sweet? Grandson finds mommy absolutely mommy-licious and he simply cannot have enough of her.

In case you ask, you can only see the back of Grandson's head because we have to respect the parents' request not to post his photos on social networks. There are also no exifs here to trace where the photos were taken. 

Hmmm, is a blog considered social networking? Especially this half-dead and obscure little blog of mine.
