exercise,a huge amount of behavior issues are fixed by walking and playing with your dog,fetch,tug o war those kind of things.
my sisters labrador is also nuts and goes a tad crazy when getting attention just because to her it is another game to play, so it becomes more playing time and pats later,
as for squirming around lots,waveing head around,running off and back,tail wagging out of control your dog's likely just super happy to be getting attention,
the licking/kissing can be brought under control by whenever your dog does it grab it's tongue and hold it for a moment or 2,not long but long enough for the dog to get the idea that licking you will cause it discomfort,BAM,no licking in a week,dogs hate it and they learn fast not to lick.
the squirming is wanting ti be let go so let go, if you want to give your dog hugs wait until there more sleepy and will be more willing to comply to your affections,
waving the head around,doing shark impersonations,let it be,just like tail wagging it's excited to get pats,
Also, pit bulls are just a tad stupid,your dog might have a bad case of full blown poo brain in which case theres no cure,just be patient and loving,they can not help it but you can help by being understanding and giving the care poo brained dogs need.
but exercise,again and again exercise is SO DAMNED IMPORTANT and so is some training,go to a dog school if this is your first dog and get them to learn at least the basic sit/go/no do not do that/walk beside me not drag me along/come to me when i call you, advance into stay and fetch/return/drop if your dog really does have full blown poo brain the basics will stretch it's mind wide open and use allof it's capacity,
best of luck, i hope some of this rambling helps you
