Sunday Citar: Everyone cuddles, and everyone wins.

“I will not play tug o' war. I'd rather play hug o' war. Where everyone hugs instead of tugs, Where everyone giggles and rolls on the rug, Where everyone kisses, and everyone grins, and everyone cuddles, and everyone wins.”
-Shel Silverstein

I decided to clear my Droid of all my photos the other day. I had 1000 pictures! And, as I was uploading them to my computer... I noticed a sweet trend: every few days since Acadia was born, there is a photo of her in my arms. There was her nursing, her in the ER after her seizure, her sucking on her sippy on days of not feeling well, her laughing with me as I tried to get her to smile for the camera... and some... simply... cuddling.

It is my most favorite thing to do with my girls. I adore cuddling with Ariana as she reads me a book and I scratch her back. I love cuddling with Annika as I run my fingers through her hair and she watches tv. I can't get enough of cuddling Acadia while she is still small enough to fit in the crook of my arm and look up at me and say, "Mumma, I love you."


  1. such sweet photos! Just read the story of Acadia's trip to the ER too. How terrifying! So glad everything was fine and you have something to look back and laugh about in such a scary moment!


  2. I love that poem too. That's sweet that you have so many cuddle pictures! Nate wasn't a cuddler when he was little so I suck up every second of it that the baby will give me!
