Hug requests

Piglet has been sooooo sweet lately.  Don't get me wrong, he's had plenty of super "special" moments too (more on that later). But his newest thing is to request hugs from me.  I swear it is the cutest thing I have ever seen.  I am defenseless against him when he does this and he knows it. Stinker.  Usually what happens is he's playing with his toys, walking around torturing the dog or whatever, and then he'll see that I'm sitting on the couch with my laptop. He'll make a beeline for me and the next thing I know, a little hand is tap tap tapping on my thigh.  Then I'll look down at him and say "Hey baby, what do you need?" And then he will wrap his arms around himself and put his hands under his chin.

LIKE THIS.
  

Seriously. Could YOU resist?  

Then I move my laptop and scoop him up and kiss him about 800,000 times while he tightly clasps his arms around my neck and sometimes taps his little paw on my shoulder (like I do to him).  Sometimes he coos "mamamamamamamama." Melt.

Here is me "encouraging" a hug request, it's really better when he just does it on his own, but you get the idea.  You can hear me being all moony with adoration in the background.  I'm such a rookie like that.

So even though Piglet may have just fallen in a heap crying because I would not let him walk around with a fork in his mouth (call me paranoid), he recovers, goes about his business and then a few minutes later, I'll feel that tap, tap tapping again.  

And that is the rhythm of our day.
