Above is Claire and Mikey, just one of the many adorable photos submitted on the Mommy Shorts Facebook Fanpage after I posted a request for pictures of kids kissing. The request was inspired both by Valentine's Day and the very timely photo of Mazzy's first kiss last weekend.
Now, if you are a regular of my blog, you know that whenever I do a fan photo album, there will be captions. This time is no exception. HOWEVER. I realized midway through the captioning process that these photos were a little trickier to caption than most.
For instance, I made a very smart decision NOT TO CAPTION any of the brother/sister pics and instead post them in a separate VERY INNOCENT slideshow called "Sibling Love" on Babble. If you posted a picture of two siblings kissing, you can probably find them there.
As for the rest of you, I tried to keep it as PG as possible. Some of the photos made it tough. If anyone has an issue with a caption, just email me and I will take it down.
Let's start with Luke and Zephra:
Izzy and Mikey:
A & E at a wedding (not their own):
Tea and Amelie:
Mara and Christian:
Carson and a stranger:
Keith and Olive:
Ben and Bella:
Dillon and Emily:
Matty and Lilly:
Shayden and Rylee:
Bennett and Bella:
Emerson and Molly:
Lilia and Matthew:
Paige and Luke:
Miranda and Erik:
Cedella and Anna:
Hayden and Reagan as Superman and Wonder Woman:
Julie and Logan:
Ten-month-old Jake and two-year-old Lainie:
And finally, Colton:
Alright. Did we all survive that okay?
My love-themed week is officially complete.
Next week, I'm taking Mazzy to Utah so wish me luck on the plane. I've got some great stuff in store— the return of Dr. B, an excellent guest post and the winner of the Incredibly Fabulous Vacation Giveaway will be announced. If you haven't entered yet, you can do so here.
Speaking of winners, congratulations to Amanda from "New Mom on the Blog" who won the Worst Wedding Story Comment Competition with "Period Surprise". Well-deserved. You are the lucky winner of a onesie from Mimosa.
Although, there was a comment on the Mommy Shorts Fanpage that had it been entered sooner, may have taken top honors.
"My mom freaked out at her place in our processional. Said "don't fucking touch me" when I went to hug her at our rehearsal dinner. Both my parents didn't show for the wedding. My brother-in-law channelled his dead father in giving us his/their blessing, then sang Mustang Sally with the band but adlibbed racist lyrics. How do I get in on this and what did I win?"
Sorry, Craig, you are too late. But might I interest you in some Mossy Balls as a consolation prize?
I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Aw, sweet photos! Monkey got his first kiss from a 3 year old girl called Sophie, who was 3 and he was 18 months old. They were strangers, we were all at a restaurant sitting at booths next to each other, and she was enamored with him.
We were all too surprised to take a picture, but trust me when I say it was adorable.
Love the theme! One of my favourite photos of all time is the one where my two kids are kissing … it is blurry and zoomed in way too close, yet it captured the love perfectly …
Good luck on your trip! I leave next week for a ten day vacation, requiring a plane. I am a horrible traveller as don’t like crowds or navigating my way through all the crazy airport rules. My toddler is unpredictable in her moods, and requires a lot of additional “stuff” to haul besides just normal luggage – carseat, stroller etc. My husband got a last minute business trip and said it is possible he may not be home in time to help get to our destination but would have to meet us there. I said get home or there may be no-one there too meet!! Ahhhh. Breathe … breathe …. and thank God for portable DVDs, colour wonder markers and cool snacks!!
Okay, Little man Colton is so cute! How could a girl not wanna kiss that face! And the foot fettish photo is probably the funniest thing I have ever seen. SO cute!
Thanks for the win. I am SO excited. My son is even MORE excited for his t-shirt!
They all look like Hallmark moments to me.
Oh how I love the mossy balls suggestion at the end of this post.
