The Cub and The {Not-Quite} Hub

When my daughter was first born my mum wrote her name in a text message and her phone changed it to ‘cub’ and a cute nickname was born.

Anyway, to the cub and my not-quite hub. I love watching these two together. They are so, so cute and funny to watch. They play together so beautifully and it makes my heart very happy watching them. She loves him so much and they love to gang up with each other and tease me as much as they possibly can. Ava delights in her and her daddy telling me I’m the stinkiest (even though she most definitely is).

She is always so excited to have him home at night or for the weekend and says things like “Maybe daddy will play the hippo game (Hungry Hippo’s) with me when he comes home”.

He is the one who has those fail-safe techniques that stop her from being so grumpy; picking her up, putting her on his shoulders, and she is instantly happy and smiley.

They are a little team and they love each other so much, and I love them so much. Seeing them together is the best thing in the world.

    That is an adorable nickname! When my daughter was little I (in a baby voice) called her a silly name. My Husband thought I called her a jujyfruit (like the candy) and the name stuck!
    Thanks for sharing your great photos!

    They certainly look like they have a wonderful relationship from these photos – my two have a very similar one and I am always filled with happiness when I see them together. I love the title of your post! Thank you for linking to #PoCoLo
