is it normal for babies to blow bubbles from the mouth?

Human trick: Babies are orally focused, so if they identify how they did that cool thing and how to repeat it, they'll be self-amusing. Of course, when the grown ups all get goofy when they do it, we reinforce it further.

And when we react differently when they " blow" a mouthful of puréed spinach a month later, they can't figure out what's wrong with us!
