Annabel has started giving us kisses spontaneously, and it’s so amazing. I can be laying on the floor, or sitting at my computer, and she’ll crawl over and give me a big sloppy wet kiss. I live for those moments.
Lately, though, she isn’t saving her kisses for me. She’s doling them out left and right…to her TOYS.
She tongue kissed her new dinosaur ride…
…her jingle bell instrument…
…the Belle doll she got from Santa…
…and most interestingly, a picture of herself.
My mom loves to play Annie videos of herself, and Annie tries to kiss the screen. So my mom thought it would be a great idea to give Annie a mirror. She stares into it and talks to herself and, you guessed it, kisses her reflection constantly.
So, now when I say, “give mama kiss!” she just looks at me like, “hmm…no.” and then crawls away and kisses one of her toys. What the heck! How am I supposed to win back her affections from toys?
I want my kisses back!
My niece (as a baby) used to do what Annie does til one day, grandpa decided to cuddle the doll instead of her and that totally changed her tune. She wanted nothing to do with her favorite doll after that. Lol!
As long as she doesn’t make nice with things like the light socket, hand held mixer and upright fans… you’re good.
Plus, she’ll be super popular in school!
My daughter did this too… It stopped after about 2 months of wiping up a lot of drool.

She kisses like Maddie!

Oh my! That post made me laugh out loud quite literally. You (and Annie, of course) are too funny, Heather!
Too cute. I’m sure she’ll get sick of kissing her toys soon and get back kissing her mama, you since mama snuggles and kisses back
OOhhh Heather….I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU MEAN!!! One of my all time favourite memroies was carrying my then 9 month old first birthday to get his diaper changed when all of a sudden, he grabbed my face wirh 2 hands, squeeled and threw hie sloppy, drooly mouth upon my cheek. It was so gross and sweet at the same time!!! I will NEVER EVER forget that moment for as long as I live. So, I know exactly what you mean!!! I LOVED and still do every single one of them!!!

My grandson does the same. He will kiss the picture of the mermaid in the book but refuse my request for a kiss.
But then, out of the blue, he’ll grab me and kiss me and hold me so tightly.
Babies- who knows?
My cats also give “kisses” to anything and everything they come across.
Annie is just too cute for words! My daughter loves kissing anything and everthing too. I thought I had seen it all until yesterday when she made an effort to kiss her lunch plate and tell it bye-byes.

That’s so cute!
It starts with mommy, moves to toys and just wait in a few years (hopefully a LOT of years, like 18) she’ll move on to BOYS. You are in so much trouble!! But she’s so damn cute!!
I just have to link to a post I did that is almost identical to this. Plus, my little man has those sweet (and huge) chubby cheeks that Annie is sporting. http://hothotjj.blogspot.com/2010/11/kisses-for-wolfy.html
I agree, how do we get the kisses back?
That is so cute! Annie is getting so big! and adorably cute!
I’d want my kisses back too! She is an amazingly cute little girl.
omg, the pic of her and Belle, too stinkin cute!
Can I come over to see if she’d smooch on me?
Big wet sloppy kisses from babies are the best :0)
She’s learning Babies learn about things by putting them in their mouths and touching them with their mouths. It’s gross, but what can you do? She will kiss you again soon enough
That is absolutely precious. If she’s already becoming ‘vain’ from seeing her image now– get ready! My son [almost 3] checks himself out in the mirror almost daily, smiles, and says “I look good.” Kids these days.
It MUST be the age! Saeryn is also kissing the baby in the mirror more than her mama! We must get the kisses back where they belong!!!!
That picture of Annie with Belle is one of the best shots I’ve seen in a long time!
LOL! She is just awesome! I love baby kisses.
omg i love how she made out with belle! priceless!
O0o0o0o getting stingy with the kisses!!
Can you try holding up a variety of toys? Like, “Kiss Belle! Kiss the dinosaur!” and so on. Finally, stop holding a toy, and be like “NOW KISS MOMMY!”
