Sweet Baby Kisses

Kate went through a phase where she HATED her face being touched. She would cringe if I attempted the "eyes & ears & mouth & nose" verse of "Head and Shoulders (Knees and Toes)." She turned her face, ducked and occasionally covered to avoid being kissed, which offended some people, to be sure.

Like babies do, she's growing out of it. She now receives kisses with grace and even gives them when being hugged and snuggled with. The morning we were lying in bed and "mwah!", I kissed the air in her direction. She leaned in and kissed me three times: purposeful, wet, open mouth kisses. I may never wash my face again.
