when we were in the NICU, we were told that some preemies have an aversion to touch after months of being poked and prodded. it was one of the pieces of information that most broke my heart. i felt so helpless during our stay there and my touch was one of the only things i could offer crosby.
we are both overjoyed that we can most definitely report that crosby does not have an aversion to touch.
i think we are trying to make up for the weeks of being unable to hold him at any time. and it is undeniable to say that our little one loves to be snuggled.
