Sweet little firsts

Yesterday morning I was in line at Starbucks, and I was holding Finn. And for the first time ever, he wrapped his arms around my neck and squeezed! Funny how I never really realized until then that he's never given hugs before.

He's also been very much into kisses, which in his case are big, open-mouthed affairs involving lots of tongue and slobber. But really, I just can't think of anything sweeter.

Boy, do I love my little guy.

What an awesome moment. I love the open-mouthed sloppy kisses, too, but the hugs are so endearing. Yay Finn. He loves his mama... do doubt about it.

Lisa this is Joyce, I just want to wrap my arms around you too and give you a big wet slobbery kiss for just making me cry. Tears of joy of course as I read so much more into that tiny little post than what is there in words. It's the journery and the progression that is just so, so beautiful. I was so touched by your writings in the beginning and I know they are only going to continue to melt our hearts:)

luken does not give hugs or kisses. he will give high 5 or knucks though. when he wants cuddles, he kind of launches toward me.
