yes this picture is out of focus, but this is an avery hug.
the hugs are few and far between. mostly when she's feeling very affectionate i'll get the 'love slap'. basically she pounds on my chest as hard as possible, sort of the way you'd lovingly slap a horse on the neck. and then there's the times when she's super sleepy, almost asleep, and she'll force her eyes open one more time and give me the biggest smile before closing them for good. it's pretty much the best thing ever and most definitely makes up for those days when she wakes up at 6 am.
i love you too, baby girl.
