Movie: Hiccups

Here you have Felix doing all of his tricks in one 19 second movie. He's been practicing quite a lot.

Hiccups in a small baby are amazing. They shake its entire body, but pass largely unnoticed by their victim. Felix can spend the better part of a day having hiccups. For a while, we could cure them with breastfeeding, but later on that stopped working as reliably. We’ve heard a theory that they help keep his airways clear. Presumably they have a purpose; certainly they take a lot of energy and time.
