Ds loves to 'kiss' me too! Love it! Although sometimes he gets real excited and grabs onto either side of head, and hair, to pull me closer, and it hurts!!! I think it's part mommy love (I'm always kissing him too) and part teething. He can gnaw pretty hard on my chin! But sooooo cute!

Mother to C 6/5/09 and wife to wonderful hubby!

My 8mo has been doing this for some time when he's hungry or tired. It's my cue to put him down or feed him (usually if I got distracted and missed how long it's been). It's really cute He also does it after coming back to me after being held by someone at church, so I think there is some love there too.

Luckysgirl, that is soooo adorable!

Here's a pic of my DS kissing his aunt (I don't think she expected it)

I concur!

My 6 month old still does this. I think it's mostly for fun and because he puts everything in his mouth.

Awww. I'd forgotten about that. As I recall now, it's short-lived. Wish I'd have gotten a pic!

My 3.5 month old just started doing this too! I was thinking it was teething, b/c he is chewing everything in sight lately and drooling like crazy. But I like thinking of it as kissing better! He also tries to suck on my neck, which tickles and makes me laugh every time!

A little late here, but, yes, it is adorable. My heart feels like it's going to explode sometimes.

He's a great big brother. Anytime we're in the car he bends far over to the right so he can hold her hand, and on the subway he talks very softly to her the whole time, just random stories that he makes up about beautiful princesses named Penelope and the adventures she goes on. Even typing this now makes me want to go find them and hold them to my chest.

And that photo is adorable! What a cutie!

He's giving you kisses in the only way he knows how. It could also be that he's hungry and latching on to whatever skin he finds.

Ben does that. We call it Benji-kisses. At 7 months he still loves to chew on my chin and cheeks. I don't love the drooly slobber or the sharp teeth in my chin, but I do think his kisses are adorable.
