We love hugs!
A mom shares her family's different hugging methods.
We love millions and plenty of hugs! When she was a baby I'd cover her up with so much huggy love only the toes would be visible. Now she's a lanky 7 yr old and while a lot more of her shows, the aim is still to envelop her as much as possible.

We have various hugs and snuggles:
The Eskimo kiss hug (nose touch)
The tickly-pickly hug (a million giggles must result)
The squeezy-peezy hug (blood flow must stop)
The toothy-woothy hug (we hug and kiss each other while smiling a lot so our teeth even touch!)
The wiggly-piggly hug (done at school because she's so proud of it and will have everyone stare at it)
The sleepy-peepy hug (when I climb into her bed and cuddle her before tiptoeing out)
The I-was-cross-just-now hug (following a telling off but ending in a smile)
The jumpy-pumpy hug - whenever we are reunited after more than 6 hours apart!
