I was nursing Hailey one morning a couple of months ago and she stopped mid-feeding to remind me that I love my husband. The message was crystal clear.

The day before this had happened, I had been quite angry and upset with my husband. I don’t remember the specifics but it lasted all day. It was very unlike me but I couldn’t shake the feeling. I was hurt, frustrated, and upset.

The next morning, I was lying in bed with Hailey nursing her and still slightly upset with my husband. She stopped mid-feeding, grabbed my hand and pulled it toward her. She just held my ring finger and stared in awe and amazement (big eyes, mouth open) at my engagement ring and wedding band. She was fascinated by it.

This hit me like a tonne of bricks. It was the first and only time she’s ever done this. It was the reminder that I needed that in spite of all of my anger and frustration at my husband I love him very much.

It was a really neat experience. Hailey had a message for me and I was paying enough attention to receive it. The message was as clear as if someone had slapped me upside the head and yelled it in my face. It amazed me. It also made me wonder what else she is telling me through her movement and actions that I never notice.

Have you experienced anything similar? I’d love to hear about it.
