Kiss...

Feelin' a bit of party let down today... It was such a nice and full weekend. David and I took a good Sunday afternoon nap while Seth napped, and then we decompressed in front of the Simpsons. But this morning, I'm noticing that all the company has left, and the weekly grocery run doesn't seem too exciting. I'm sure the blahs will lift by evening...

But something exciting did happen in my little world yesterday! I discovered that Seth will give you a kiss if you ask. I had been letting him play with my jacket zipper, and while he was intent on that, with my face in his sweet smelling hair, I said, "Will you give Mommy a kiss?" He stopped playing, looked up, opened his mouth, and leaned in. I was shocked. It was really a rhetorical question. I, of course, was very excited, so I told David all about it. His response? "Oh yeah, I knew he could do that. He's been kissing his books when I've asked him to." Of course in my book, this and that are like apples and kumquats. It's a much bigger deal for him to kiss an adult human caregiving figure than it is for him to kiss a two-dimensional image of a bear. I made David aware of that. He smiled. And then I asked Seth for another kiss, and I got it. I better not wear out this new game...

Baby kisses are the best. Emma won't give them too often, so you have to really treasure them when she does. Sometimes it helps to say, "give the bunny a kiss!" and then say," now give Mommy a kiss" and then she will usually do it. I love them. She even puts the little mmmm noise with it.
