My Little One
She's not always open to hugs & attention & such. Which I totally understand. I'm the same way. "Open" & "closed" are the words I use in my mind for the different moods. There are times when we just need to be left alone & I've written more about that here.
She's more open in the morning & more closed in the afternoon and evening. I think I follow a similar schedule. As a mother though I often have to open myself back up for my kids. They need me to be open whenever they need a snuggle or attention & I am most times fine with opening back up.
This little one has an exception too. She's always open for me as well. She rarely pushes me away when I squeeze her little body tight & kiss her cheeks repeatedly & push my face into her warm neck. I guess that's one of the perks of being her mother. Our relationship is special like that.
I asked her the other day if I could just kiss her face all day long. She thought that was a little bit overboard. For now I'm taking advantage of her openness with me at this stage. I realize that this little face will continue to grow bigger along with that body & mind & personality of hers, and one day she won't be so open & willing to let me cuddle her to death.
