It is grand, yes.
Well, I spit some water onto my monitor upon reading that their little heads taste like kitty spit, thank you Satai!
Tonight I had three licking me at the same time. Every night I turn off the light and go in with a flashlight to try to get them all onto the same blanket to sleep. To address the three baby-like ones, I crouch over top of them and they like to meow and lick while they use my body as a cave. It's so indescribably cute...
But about moving them away from your face: I think you might find that the kitten will just keep crawling back up. They're like robots sometimes that way. I personally need to start wearing shirts with sleeves as my shoulders are covered in very fine scratches from the kittens wanting to be around my face and neck. I can't dissuade them, they just keep crawling back up.
Maybe try wrapping him in a tiny blanket or washcloth, to snuggle him and keep him where you want him.
