She never has been, really. When she was a tiny baby, if I tried to rock her to sleep, she'd cry. She'd also squirm against swaddling, screaming until she could free herself. She didn't like to be held that much, and learned to walk literally as soon as humanly possible (8 months old).
But the last few weeks, she's been hugging me all the time. Kissing, showing all kinds of affection.
So this morning when I asked Lily, "Can I have a hug?" I expected her to give me a hug.
But she didn't.
She gave me a distressed face, shook her head, and then suggested, "High five?"
So I gave her five instead.
Happy mother's day, everyone.
