Still Wins My Heart

While Nursing Tree Faerie down for a nap, she was trying hard to resist sleep. One of her favorite self-distraction techniques is to play with my hair. Because the tickling on my face was getting annoying, I turned my head so she could play with the hair away from my face.

Apparently she wanted my attention and affection, because after a moment she stopped nursing, pulled herself up to my face, and planted a big wet kiss on my face. I gave her a kiss and a hug and told her I loved her, and she snuggled back down to continue nursing.

(I hear the chorus of "Awwww!!!" out there. That's what I said, too!)

How could anyone resist the cuteness that is my child? *sigh*

You are right. Resounding chorus of Awwwwwwws. Those are the moments that make the chapped nipples and crick in the neck worthwhile.
