sweet conversations.

Yesterday Holden and I had a sweet conversation that went something like this. . .

Holden was laying on his car rug, rolling his cars around. I was sitting on the ottoman watching the boys play and all of the sudden I hear these words from Holden: I yub you, mommy.

I probably went over the top when I said in excitement: Oh my goodness, Holden! I love you too. Come here, I need a hug and a kiss. He ran into my arms grinning and gave me both a hug and kiss. My eyes were getting misty and I said something like: That makes mommy so happy. I think I might cry.

He looked concerned and serious when he said: I will not make you cwie, mommy. I will not make you sad. I pwom-miss!

He's probably going to accidentally break that promise, but it'll be okay. ;) I cover the boys in affection and words of affirmation. I'm not bragging about it. It's just who I am. Ask Jeremy. No one that I deeply love ever has to wonder how I feel about them. And with my 3 boys, they hear it daily. Multiple times. And they get smothered in kisses and cuddles regularly. I can't help myself. And I'm hopeful that those sweet-out-of-the-blue-words from Holden is something that he is learning. To tell others how much you love them. But yesterday, he nearly melted my heart.

Awww...that is the BEST! Mason signs "I love you" to me, as he says it, when he is leaving to go to Grandma's or Granny's. I melt each and every time!! :)
