"The Monker" is Liam's sitting-up burping position. Sometimes Liam doesn't mind doing his monkers. Other times, they induce a great fuss. One thing has become clear, however--Monkers never lie. If the Monker's mouth is open and he is rooting around on my hand, he's still hungry. If he's asleep with his fat cheeks hanging over my hand, he's no longer hungry, even if later fussing from a confused Liam might suggest otherwise.
