I am not normally a hugger.
Sure, I hug Abigail. But much outside of Abigail, not so much of a hugger. Even John doesn't get that many hugs. It's just not my thing (in fact, if I don't see a hug coming, it takes all I have to prevent myself from going stiff as a board!)
But I've been getting a lot of hugs lately. Because that is what people do when there is a new baby in the family. They hug.
And you know what? I kind of like it.
Now I am off to Sam's Club to stock up on household stuff, baby wipes, and little airplane treats. I do not anticipate that this will involve hugs.
