Since birth, Emily has not really been a cuddly baby. I have always tried to pin her down beside me and force her to cuddle with me, but she usually refuses by wriggling her little body away from my grasp. Recently, Emily has started to hug my husband and I. These hugs first began as a gentle tap on our backs with one hand. Now, we are talking about full-fledged hugs. She will open her little arms as wide as she can and wrap them around my neck. Sometimes, if I’m lucky, she will even rest her head on my shoulder. I love Emily’s hugs.
