Twice during dinner tonight my very bright 7 month old turned my head with her hands to make me face her and planted her open mouth on mine. I swear she was giving me kisses. What do you think? Is she too young to know how to do that?
Nope. I can't remember when my dd started giving kisses, but it was at that age or earlier. Big, sloppy, wet, open-mouthed kisses! I love 'em! She's quite stingy with them these days, so enjoy them while you can
Nope not too young, imo, ds was 3 months when he started. I would kiss, him and say 'kisses' then he would go after my cheek, when I'd say kisses again...we would do this over and over. He's been getting less messy and wet with them, so I don't have to 'wipe up' my face as much
no. she's a girl, which statistically means she will do things on the "early side," and my boy did this from about 8-9 month range. so it doesn't seem too young from my personal experience. i remember thinking this when my first "smiled" at me at only 2 months and kept doing it. he seemed so yound and small and unable to control anything, but the consistency and all the "tests" i did to see if he was really smiling played it out.
I know my oldest was "kissing" by 5 months because I have a picture of her at Christmastime planting a big slobbery one on me. Ian is 6 mos and for the last week or two he's been grabbing my face and pulling me toward his mouth...I think he's kissing, but sometimes he does seem to be more interested in trying to teethe on my nose!
DH and I have been disagreeing on this for the last week...our 6.5m daughter has been planting her open mouth on our cheek & neck, and she especially likes to suck on my chin. DH says she's trying to give kisses, but I thought she was just showing she's hungry.
But now I think he's right...It's a new thing (about a week now). She often does it right after she has finished nursing or when we give her a kiss.
Josh started giving himself open mouth kisses in the mirror when he was about 5 mo. He gives his sister kisses all the time, sometimes we can coax one out of him..it's the absolute sweetest thing ever!
