  • That may be her personality. My daughter at around age 7 decided she didn't want pictures taken of her and we had to bribe her with money to get in a family photo. She's 12 and still behaves this way. It's just the way she is.

  • Yes :) She's two. Tonight after dinner I was sitting with her in the kitchen watching her play with her alphabet magnets on the fridge. She turned around in the middle of it and said, "Hud, mama!" and jumped in my lap. It was so random and so sweet :)

  • My daughter adores it. She doesn't hang all over me all the time. But we do give hugs and kisses often through out the day. At bed time I always ask for a hug and a kiss. One night, I remembered the kiss but forgot the hug. "MOM! WAIT! MY HUG!" she says LOL

  • My son isn't the huggy/kissy kind. It is just his personality. I hug/kiss him anyway and make him squirm to get away. Lol. He will give random hugs and kisses though when he feels like it. He will kiss good-bye/good-night, etc.

  • Nooooo! My daughter has never ever been the type to want hugs and kisses. She's almost 1. Perhaps when she's a bit older she'll like it more. She's starting to give me wet sloppy open mouth kisses on my cheek when I say "Gimme a kiss!" But she never wants to be hugged. She doesn't like feeling restricted, I think. She never liked swaddling either. Hmmmmm...
