Jacob likes to snuggle. But not the way most little ones would - there's no snuggling in my lap, or nuzzling with my neck. Nope. This kid likes my "cold arms."
For as long as I can remember, he loves when I wear short sleeves and he can rub my upper arms. He does it when he needs to feel reassured, when he's tired, hurt or just needs some extra love. I guess it started when he was done nursing?
Sometimes I just wish that he would come up and give me a big old hug. But then I think about how totally JACOB this "cold arms" thing is and hope that he still wants to hug my arms for a bit longer.
