A Kiss Is Just a Kiss

When Theo stayed with Grandma earlier this week, she taught him to hug her when she asked for a hug. Previously, when asked for a hug, he always gave a kiss. Probably because I can't hug him without kissing him, so how can he know the difference? :)

But thanks mom, he gives the best hugs now. It feels wonderful to finally feel his arms wrapped around me. Most moms don't wait 3 years for that feeling. But like everything else with Theo, the anticipation makes the progress that much sweeter.

I still haven't gotten over being called mommy yet. He says it a million times a day now and it's still music to my ears.

Hugging lessons are something that Grandmas and Grampas love to teach. We had so much fun. I'm so glad he's really hugging. And you're right, it's even more delicious now after having waited. We had lots of practice!
