Mama's Girl

Adah has always been a baby that will go to just about anybody. When we are in social situations if somebody wants to hold her they will put out their arms and Adah will go to them. She has always been like that. In the jr. high ministry, I will often say to Jon, "Where is our daughter?" because she is usually passed around by the counselors. I really like that I can go and not worry about her freaking out. When we get home however, its a completely different story.

We have always joked that Adah is a Mama's girl, but it has recently hit a new level. She is so clingy lately I don't know what to do. Its not like I am working and away from her 8+ hours a day. I am with her 24/7, with the exception of about 4 hours (maybe) a week. I can be in the same room as her and she will freak out (tears and all) if I'm not right next to her. I just don't get it.

What makes me sad is that she is doing this with Jon as well. If we are all together and Jon decides to take her with him to another room, She will cry like she is never going to see me again. I feel so bad for Jon, but he is such a good sport about it.

I know that she is only this age for so brief of time, but it is really waring on my nerves because she has so many people in her life that would love time with her.

Hate to warn ya, but Emma's still like that with Danielle and she's 5. Good luck with that :)

Awww, She knows a great thing when she's got it!

Both our girls went through a similar stage, and it will wear off.
