I think the most rewarding thing in the world is when your children smile at you, and give you hugs. The Boss is the champion hugger. I have never known another baby who would give such tight hugs at such a young age. He just wraps his little arms all the way around my neck and SQUEEZES, and I just love it! He has been giving me hugs for quite a few months now, and he does it the best when I am tired and frustrated. It just melts the heart!
