Sometimes with Adam if he is unsure about me approaching to scratch his head he is fine if I first bend my head and scratch it while saying 'Adam scritches?'

Raven did it again tonight! :)
When I saw him massaging his own head, I knew that if I just reached over, he'd have none of that. So, I took my index finger and in a 'come here' sort of motion where you crook your finger, I put my finger near my head and did that, and approached him slowly with that same finger motion so that he'd "get it", and he let me do it for about a minute! That was great. I hope he keeps letting me do it. Then, I'll be looking forward to the day he actually asks me to do it by bending down his head. He hasn't done that yet. I don't expect it for a while.
