Emerick has become very independent lately. He rarely wants to be held, and when he does it is only for a second. I am lucky if I get one quick hug from him a day. He is too busy pushing toys, or any object around like it is a car, and exploring his surroundings. Every night when he is fast asleep, I sneak into his bedroom and pick him up out of his crib for some cuddles. There is nothing like a sleeping baby.
