Tender Moments

It is finally happening. The kids are being SUPER affectionate towards one another. It is beautiful. Brings tears to my eyes. Makes my heart flutter w/ joy. Because, I know it won't be this way forever.

Hugs are the "in" thing at the moment & I love trying to capture it.

The girls giving each other hugs. They do it all the time.



When Sofi got in trouble today & was pouting after a time out, Ian went to comfort her.


Then Gabi had to get in on the action.


I have to say that I get a kick out of every time they hug each other, or kiss each other. So cute! And, I know it won't last forever so I'm soaking in every moment I can.

I see Ian is the only one that does not use those stupid pacis. I guess he will not be laughed at in school.

That's right. He won't be laughed at, thank God. Or maybe he will since he wears leg braces b/c kids don't know the difference when it comes to stuff like that. Apparently you don't either.

My little one just started doing this too--it is SO heartwarming!!

Wow what a spineless coward. Get over yourself and post under a name so the world knows you're an idiot. That right there is grounds to be laughed at. Sorry you're so insecure that you have to make fun of two year olds and criticize an amazing mom. Bet you wish you had a mom half as good as Astrid is. I'd rather have a kid with a paci than a kid with a terrible attitude who is a few colorful words I won't mention.

Seriously though, what kind of person follows the blog of a mother only to criticize her and her kids? Do you not have bills to pay? a job to go to? maybe that's it, maybe your mom still babies you and lets you live with her. THAT is grounds to be laughed at. Looks to me like you need to get your life together rather than spending all your time following and criticizing some two year olds buddy! That's pretty sad and lame. Go take a shower.

LO Adi! You rock!

Adi, I love being related to you.

Anyway, Astrid, your kids are beautiful, pacis and all. I love it when mine are affectionate too. I have pictures upon pictures of hugs and kisses!

They are soo cute! Maddie loves on everything and just started hugging and kissing other kids...except once she starts, she wants to do it over and over and over and gets sad when we have to leave the other child - could you imagine if we got the 4 of them together? We'd probably keel over dead from too much adorableness.

Astrid, the kids are just ADORABLE! I love it when Julian is in a hugging mood. Now, he is even saying "HUG" before he does it. Thanks! Those pics put a smile on my face. =)
@anonymous, I think we all know how you feel about the pacis. There is nothing wrong with a toddler using a paci. I'm quite sure Astrid is not going to send them off to kindergarten with them. You're like a dog with a bone. Just get over it already!! If it bothers you so much, why do you continue to follow this blog???

I'll even go buy a paci to put in anon's mouth! I love the smiles even with the pacis!
