Yesterday I had one of those heart-meltingly wonderful moments with my son that made my whole day...heck, my whole month.
He climbed up on the kitchen chair to hug me, and as he put his head on my chest, I said, "I love you, baby." and clear as day, he replied, "I love you." He's never said it before and generally doesn't string more than 2 words together, but apparently this is something Mr. Fantastic's been working on with him.
What a great feeling. My whole heart went meep-clench-EEE! ♥ This is just one of the many reasons I love being a mom.
