Baby Milestones: Learning To Kiss

FacebookTwitterGoogle+TumblrPinterest

Sooo, allow me to pat myself on my back because this week I taught Huck to give kisses.

I read somewhere that a baby can see an action performed or hear a word spoken and then repeat it flawlessly up to two weeks later (did I read that here? because that would be funny). Well, it took about a week of kissing his perfect little cheeks over and over and saying in between kisses “Can I have a kiss?” before one day, when I asked for that kiss, and I got it! One big, sloppy kiss, just for mama.

Luckily, I got it all on camera. After the jump.

But can you tell me, why do all babies skip the modest pecks and head straight for the french kiss?
