My wife Sarah giving Holden a kiss, then his reaction afterwards.

Pictures are cute but, IMO, not well framed or cropped.

#1 is not square and not standard - and needlessly.
I would crop this much tighter and focus attention on the interaction, what gets cut off is, imo, not important or contributory. (it needs a little more contrast, I think)

I actually like how the image shows her arm & body cradling the infant. Wonder where the 1st image was cropped?

Without being a PITA, let me say that 'liking' an image isn't enough. To help the poster, and yourself, it is useful to dissect why having that bit of shoulder and hair adds to the image for you.

Is there more information. more feeling, better composition, more color?

That part of C/C is crucial to improving the eye.

No, Dave, for me, the original is better. The crop (suggested by Lew) is not enough to bring more focus on the picture, your original does that just fine. With the new crop, her head is too truncated and does not look natural. The one imporvement is does have is to remove the white/red object (blanket?) from the near bottom corner, but I think a dark vignette would do almost as well here.
