Baby Kisses

My mom arrived on Sunday evening and was helping me put the kids to bed.

"Maddie, can I have a kiss?" she asked.

I didn't expect Maddie to comply as I've never asked her for a kiss before and figured she wouldn't know what to do. Imagine my surprise, then, when she puckered up and leaned in for a smacker. Her eyes were wide open. It was hilarious. I asked for and received one, too. It's so funny to see this little toddler face leaning in for a smooch. Sometimes she closes her mouth and sometimes it's wide open, but no matter what kind of kiss it is, she makes me laugh.

Silly girl.

I love kisses, especially those first ones. My oldest daughter would often give open mouthed kisses. Actually, it was more like a lick on the cheek. But I cherished each and every one.

Maddie sounds like she could be very affectionate. WTG! One of the sweetest rewards of motherhood is to hear my 3 1/2 year old say, "I Love You, Mommy" or give me a kiss when I don't ask for one. You're in for LOTS of wonderful time!
