From Kristin: “Having twins makes giving as much physical contact as babies sometimes need very challenging! Luckily, my girls adapted, as did I. Here’s one peaceful moment amidst the chaos for me. I was watching my oldest play in the yard.”

From Stephanie: “No more kisses, Mommy!”

Baby loves to be close to Mama and explore his world at the same time. Here he passes along some nurturing touch to a beautiful flower.

    I really love all of these. I especially like that you included a photo with an older child – it’s not just the littlest ones who need that nurturing touch!
