A demanding girl

As we were putting Clara to bed last night, she requested her first official hug from Daddy. 

Though we’ve hugged one another several thousand times, including the glorious hugs and kisses that I receive every day upon arriving home from work, this was the first verbal command for a squeeze. 

A few seconds after receiving it, she followed up her request with another for “More kisses!”

Also a first. 

Several times during the night, I felt the urge to wake her up in hopes that I could put her to bed all over again, just to hear those wonderful demands once again.
