Kiss your babies!

Paloma is growing faster as she gets older, it seems. As she approaches two, every day is filled with new words, discoveries, games and ideas.

Obviously, that means cuddling with her parents is less and less interesting. But- I still want to kiss her just as much! Sigh, this is the constant practice of letting go of parenthood I suppose.

However! I have another baby on the way! We thought we kissed Paloma a lot. *This* one is going to be kissed 24-7!!! Every chance we get!! Mwah mwah mwah.

This is not the most Zen of attitudes, exactly. I get that my lesson is to let go as they grow. But there is another lesson buried in there, and I am raising it as a PSA for all new parents:

KISS YOUR BABIES WHEN THEY'RE BABIES!! Kiss them unreasonable amounts!!!
