..... to get some smooches around here?
We knew Talia was a joker from early on. She started giving big, wet kisses at about 7 months old. By 9 or 10 months, she was swooping in for a big smooch, then turning her head at the last second and laughing hysterically. What a tease. I, of course, thought this was awesome and gave her a big reaction everytime, which only encouraged her.
She's still making me work for kisses at the ripe old age of 2. Here's our conversation most mornings:
Talia: Mommy! I wake up!
Me: Yes, I see that, sleepyhead. Good morning! Do you have a kiss for Mom?
Talia (smirking): Mommy want some kissy?
Me: Yeah! Gimme a smooch!
Talia: Mommy cry!
Me: Boo hoo hoo. Mommy has no kisses.
Talia (smooch): Dere go, Mommy. Mommy kissy.
What a kid.
