Hyrum Hugs

I have never been around a baby this small who hugs, but Hyrum does. He wraps his right arm around your neck, grabs your hair in the back, burrows his face into your shoulder and squeezes. And, he holds the squeeze. This isn't just a momentary thing, it lasts. I can't think of anything sweeter.

oh - that's adorable! It makes being a mom worth every sticky, messy, loud moment. :) I'm sure the triathalon group would be glad to have another member when John is available.

That's really sweet. I LOVE baby affection! It somehow puts everything in perspective for me.
