Pucker Up

I'm sure one day she will hate me for sharing that one, but for now I thought it was too dang funny to pass up.......

.....but this is the real thing I wanted to share.....

My baby girl (yes I know she's 3) learned how to kiss with her lips together yesterday. This is a new skill (Thanks to Adrian for noticing before he left for school in the morning.) I'm sure we'll still be the recipients of a few sloppy wet open-mouthed kisses yet but she's on her way to figuring it out. I think she also says uh-uh in the video. Although I've heard what kind of sounds like up (uuuuuu for weeks), and I think she's come pretty close to saying "uh-huh" (yes) and uh-uh (no), all in context. Wha-da-ya think? Does this count as her official first word?


  1. Okay. LOVE this post. Such exciting things happening at your house!

    If you are a member of Facebook or know someone who is, please take the chance to do something incredible!

    Chase Community Giving is awarding $1 million to 5 charities! The Gwendolyn Strong Foundation is working to find a cure for Spinal Muscular Atrophy - and they could use the money!

    Fast Facts:
    - SMA is the #1 genetic killer of infants under the age of 2
    - 50% of those diagnosed will not live to see their 2nd birthday
    - kids with SMA lose the ability to sit, stand, walk, talk, eat, swallow, and breathe
    - 1 in 40 people is a carrier
    - the National Institute of Health says that SMA is the #1 CURABLE disease if given research funding
    - right now there is NO cure and NO treatment

    Want to change that? Vote for the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation on the Chase Community Giving app on Facebook! You have five votes to tell the world that you want a CURE for SMA!

  5. Smooches, Ainsley!!! That's awesome! And yes, Uh-Uh was clear as a bell to me when she shook her head.

  6. So I for one just love that 1st video of her itty bitty bottom lip...too cute!

    Way to go Ainsley, kisses and words, there is no stopping you now!


    P.S Susan, on that last video are those binders of an organized life?
    OMG you are so opposite to me, I wish I could be that organized, Says I as I back away slowly with my head hung in shame.

  7. Oh my goodness, the pout! My Peanut has a pout just like that. :) I am glad to read that she is recovering well and returned to school.
