It's the little things........(part 2)

I (Jen) have often wondered something; When does one learn the meaning of affection? When it was just us and the dogs we would lavish affection on them. I would often ask Brian if he thought they knew that "kissies" mean love. He would always reply, "of course they do!" But I was still not totally convinced. One of the few ways to get Faith to smile...I mean to REALLY smile is get really close to her face then give her a kiss. I've always been unsure if she's smiling because of our voices, of is she knows the meaning of a kiss. I've often tried to get a similar response by doing other things that make typical babies smile....making gerbers on her belly, tickling her feet...no such response....this isn't surprising considering she has been poked on her feet well over a hundred times, so they are pretty calloused and tough. Then the other night another night we were giving another small moment. I was holding faith in my lap- we were playing as we always do..I'd make her smile by getting close to her face..then she did something she's never done before...I bent over and kissed her hands...she smiled.....I then went for the feet...another smile. I thought maybe it was a fluke so I repeatedly kissed her feet...smile...smile....smile.....
I guess Brian was right. I guess this is just another small miracle that we have to hold onto...Faith may not be able to do the things other babies her age do..she may not know as much as they know..but she knows that kissies mean love...and now so do we.

Kisses...oh I we all love them! Faith Knows and has always KNOWN that your kisses are full of love. She feels and KNOWS how much love you have for her and the smiles of a child are just priceless....each and every glimps of a smile or a full face ear ear grin tells us..SHE KNOWS!
Why do you think I send "kisses(X)and Hugs (O) at the end of every note. I want her to kow how much we love her..SO your JOB is to give her those kisses for me!

They love being kissed...wait until she giggles for the first time. YOUR HEART WILL MELT EVEN MORE!.

We love you,
