seven months

If she loved on you like she loves her pink elephant (It came tied to the top of a baby-shower gift. It was gift garnish*), you would say to yourself, “Oh my, I have never been loved so ferociously as this.”

Because she would smile and she would reach for you with eager little fingers.

She would grab you behind the ears and kiss you. Like she meant it.

She would pull your tail.

And if you didn’t know better, you would think she was trying to tear you apart. That’s just hugs.

You would emerge a little worse for the wear, perhaps. But you would say to yourself, “Aw, man. That was worth it.”

*Like the original Snooze Button chupy, this came from Tia Kathy Espinoza. I think we should pause to credit her knack for picking winners in the “Go fig’ – Alice loves it” category.
