☆  affectionate  愛情のある


If you are affectionate, you show your love or fondness for another person in the way that you behave towards them. My little girl is currently 4 ½ months old and is not affectionate at all. Ha ha! Of course, this is a developmental thing, and I don’t think babies are affectionate until much older, but I can’t remember when!

I feel like my sons were so affectionate from a young age, but it probably wasn’t four months old, more like one year old or later. I wonder if it is also a difference between boys and girls? I wonder if girls are more affectionate or less affectionate at this young age than boys? I read a book, “Raising Boys” which said that the mother is the most important person for boys from birth to about 6 years old, so that might explain why they are more affectionate.

How about you? Are you an affectionate person? How about your family members?
