Like all of you, I'm a number of things to a number of people...Navy wife, homeschooling mama, educated woman and aspiring writer. Read my thoughts on all of it here. Please feel free to leave your thoughts on all of it too!

I love hugs. Tyler is just getting to that stage where he comes to me out of the blue and hugs me. And he's not just giving quick little hugs. He lays his head on my shoulder and puts his arms around me and squeezes. Sometimes he even pats my back a little. It's so sweet.

I don't just love to get Tyler's hugs, though. I love watching him hug Daddy. Tyler's breastfed by his stay at home mother. He probably has less than 24 hours away from me in his one year of life. So, snuggling with Daddy is new...and wonderful to see. Precious is probably the best description.

There are other wonderful huggers in my life too. Jace and Gracie still hug me before bed and after naps. Sometimes they even sit still long enough that we can have a good cuddle, like Titi Monkeys. I just learned about them. They spend a lot of time hugging, with even their tails curled together. That just seems like a positive and wonderful thing to me.

Scott also hugs me, or lets me hug him. I'm not really sure which, and don't care either way. I love hugs and like to share a good embrace with anyone in my wonderful family. So go wrap your arms around someone you love and feel the warmth it brings...love me a good snuggle!

I'd give you a hug if I could. I'm a hugger, cuddler, kisser. Nick just sort of puts up with it.
