She said...

"I love you."

3 simple words.

I've heard baby say it many times.

Only when I have asked her to say it though.

Tonight as I tucked and squeezed and kissed Baby good night she squinted up at me with her big toothy smile and said,

"I love you."

I said, "I love you too."

I was able to say "too" at the end of that sentence for the first time ever in Baby's life.

So, yes, I am behind in blogging and haven't caught up on many things, but this was I night I did not want to forget.

She told me she loves me without a prompt or encouragement or as a repeated phrase.

She said it.

I think she even meant it—you know—really knew what she was saying she cares deeply for me.

Maybe I'll never hear it independently from her again…

but, at least, I heard it.

It melted my heart.
