Counting Kisses is a silly little game I play with my daughter, Jessie, who happens to have Down syndrome. It goes like this..."How many kisses can I have?" We negotiate. How ever many kisses she allows, I search for just the right spot, counting each kiss as I go. It's silly and fun and a favorite part of most every day.

Sweetly Watching Sissy
Jessie standing on the couch, watching through a cut out between the living room and kitchen, while her sister is washing dishes.
For those that don't know it, the large V shaped space between Jessie's big toe and her next toe, is a characteristic of Down syndrome. That first toe...I call that her rebellious toe, it's as long as her big toe, and is a carbon copy of that same toe on her daddy's foot. My nose fits perfectly in that V :)
