For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows grace and favor and glory - honor, splendor and heavenly bliss! No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.

Psalms 84:11

First Kisses!

I was going to write about something completely different, but then this morning when I was playing with the girls something wonderful happened.

With a face like this:

You would think Anya would be the first to pucker up!

But instead it was Ziva!

I was playing with Anya, a kissing game where I would purse my lips and make very dramatic "MMmmmmmm Muah!" kissing noises. Each time I'd do it Anya would lean in for a kiss on her head or cheek or chin or whatever. And she'd giggle and wiggle each time with wonderful toddler enthusiasm.

And then Ziva decided to climb up on the couch with us to join the game. I've played this game with Ziva before in pretty much the above described method. Except this time something was different. There was a curious gleam in Ziva's eyes. And she pursed her own lips, leaned forward and said, "mmmmmm" as she kissed me right on the lips! And OH did my heart do flip flops, in a strangely similar fashion to when their father first kissed me!

I gotta say, this parenting business really is amazing!

That is so sweet! I love those baby kisses. Lathen is the one is goes for kisses the most but Leann does it some.
