“Squishy’s here!” she exclaimed with joy as she carried Marshall over to the other kids.

I assumed she meant he had a full diaper, as that’s what we mean when we say he’s “squishy.”

When I asked for clarification, she explained that they nicknamed him Squishy because he’s so cuddly and likes to squish his cheek up against theirs when he’s being held.

How absolutely adorable is that?!

It brings me so much comfort to know that he’s getting so much love when he’s away from us.

And I love that he is so affectionate that the first nickname given to him by someone other than us is reflective of that.
