Tonight during storytime, when I said “I love you Dylan” you looked back at me and said, “I love you mommy.” It was the first time you said it. It was…surreal. The best part – I feel like you understood what you were saying. I screamed for daddy to come in and asked you, “who else do you love?” You said, “I love you daddy.” I paused to watch daddy melt before my eyes then asked, “do you love anyone else” and you said, “I love you my baby.” I asked, “Do you love the doggy?” And you snapped back, “NO, NO I love you doggy!!!” Poor doggy.
I tucked you in and said “I love you Dylan.” You smiled and said, “I love you mommy” and mumbled just under your breath, “I love you doggy.”
