Tanner’s kisses

June 1, 2011 by

I’ve been working on “Kiss Kiss” with Tanner for months and now he’s got it. They’re a little wet but we love em’. He’s so proud of himself (we praise and applaud him) that he’s doing without even being asked. I’m super proud and this has made my day, month and year:)
