That’s the new noise Kaleia added to her already expansive repertoire of sounds, when I woke her up the other day. At least I thought it was just a noise.
I pick up our little hisser and she plants a wet one right on my kisser. Kaleia-initiated kisses are getting a little more common but they are still a pretty rare gift.
“Thank you for the kiss, Kaleia!”
“Ssss!” She says it again and then, immediately after, very purposefully leans in for another slack-mouthed slobber deposit. “Ssss, ssss!”
I think Kaleia’s first official word is “(ki)ss”!
