Well, it's official... my itty bitty baby girl is growing up! It started with rolling over (and off the bed a couple of times), then on to sitting up... now she is crawling and pulling up to EVERYTHING she can reach. Yesterday she just about let go of what she had pulled up to and stood alone. Its going by too fast!
I struggle within myself between wanting to put her in a protective bubble and wanting her to learn that it is okay to to explore. How do you find that perfect balance as a parent? My little queen is definitely of the independent variety... she insists on feeding herself now and has decided that she is too big to eat baby food most of the time. Guess that means I will be cooking now...
I enjoy every moment... every giggle and smile...
I do need prayers as she grows up though... I am still considering the two of us joining the convent before she turns four.

I've been promising this post for a while now... but I honestly couldn't find the inspiration to write it. Well, I've become inspired... so here we go. I've had this conversation a million times with friends and everyone always agrees - kissing has become a lost art.
I've noticed over the years (and especially in relationships) how true this really is. I'm not even sure if most couples realize it, but people just stop kissing. It goes from passion to little pecks on the lips in passing. Instead of kissing someone being exciting, it becomes a mundane task done without even thinking or feeling it. To me this is such a loss...
Do you ever long for that perfect kiss??? You know the one I'm talking about... the one that leaves you breathless, knees weak, head spinning. Some wonder if it even exists or if its just another legend.
Let me tell you - it does exist.
Why is it that the art of kissing has become lost? Is it that we are too busy... too caught up in the hustle and bustle of life? Or maybe it is thought that it just needs to be done as part of foreplay before sex... kind of like a prerequisite or something. If people are of this mindset, the kiss is usually hurried and not even enjoyed. Kissing someone is such a personal and intimate experience... maybe we are just not willing to get that vulnerable.
Why not take the time to TRULY kiss someone?
Make it sensual... making love with only your mouths. Give of yourself... its so worth it.
My hope is that each of you will take the time to rediscover the lost art of kissing...
