Babies & Big Girls alike

I was reading my sister-in-law Kelly's blog today. She was talking about the effect that it has on her when her almost 1 year old son cuddles with her & is purposefully sweet. Even though she is my bouncing baby 16 year old I am just as much of a sucker for Rachel's affection as Kelly is for G's. I know that fact that it has taken so long for Rachel to feel ok about showing me affection makes it all the sweeter but I think my gestures of love to my parents still make them all warm & fuzzy inside too. Lately Rachel has been telling me she loves me each day. She does it purposefully but I can tell it still makes her nervous by the way she'll sometimes say it with sarcasm or add a "...supposedly" to the end. I can also tell she really wants me to notice that she is finally telling me she loves me. For those of you that knew 13 year old Rachel you will understand why even she is amazed at this development. Children can be hard & require great sacrifice & long-suffering but the rewards are indescribable!

Praise God for lovey and cuddly moments. David just started offering kisses to us last week -- melts my heart. And, his hugs are precious. Since he's especially "rough and tumble", I'm usually happy with any affectionate moments :).
