Have you ever had that it-can't-get-better-than-this feeling that makes your heart feel all warm and fuzzy? My husband calls it having the "squishies." This was one of those moments. Ren and I were just hanging out when he hugged me. As I looked down at his sweet face, it hit me: this won't last forever. Of course, he'll still hug me but it will never be exactly the same. Even as I write this only months after our photo shoot, things have already changed!! He is not only taller but also demanding more space: "Mom, I'm seven now."
I love that he's growing and becoming more independent but I miss the incessant hugs!
