I absolutely love this research! I love and truly look forward to giving my baby(and the two older kids) kisses and hugs. It is the best part of my day! I wish the baby would sleep through the night, but that is the only time he really cuddles and lets me give him tons of kisses. So I guess I will stay sleep deprived a little longer! According to this research, he will be a better kid because of it!
(This picture is from last week when the baby decided to join me in the shower. He thought it was tons of fun!)
