Forehead Bone, Apple of My Eye
1. Forehead bone,
2. Apple of my eye*
3. Nose tip
5. Hairy chin
6. Tickle, tickle, tickle!
*Literally, "stone of the eye". "Apple" used to refer to the pupil in English.
Gently touch the baby as follows:

2. øjensten = to the side of the eye
3. næsetip = tip of the nose
4. mundelæp = lip
5. hagefip = chin
6. killikillivavvav! = Then tickle, tickle, tickle!
