Counting Kisses

When you bathe or change your baby, you already can’t help but kiss that soft belly and those chubby thighs. Next time, do your kissing with counting. Kiss your baby’s belly three times, counting “1, 2, 3!” Not only does your baby get the benefit of your closeness, but he also connects your words (one, two, three) with your actions (kissing).
