The Sweetest Thing

Sometimes the simplest things in life are the best. Take this morning for instance - pretty much a normal morning. I had just put the dinner on to cook in the slow cooker (marvellous invention that) and I was doing the dishes. Alice was indulging in two of her favourite past times - eating breakfast 'on the run' and digging around in the drawer where I keep all the plastic containers. So I am washing away, Alice is happily playing, and all of a sudden, she comes running to me. 'What's wrong sweetheart?' I ask. She looks up at me, smiles and says 'ca!" This is Alice-speak for cuddle. So I bend down, open my arms and she comes to me for a snuggle. A couple of months ago, this would never have happened. My broken baby is healing, and it is the sweetest thing....
And just for a bit of gratuitous eye-candy, here's the yummy Bono singing one of my fave U2 songs. Enjoy!

That is so sweet. It truly warms my heart to see Alice wanting to snuggle.
