I yuv you.

I couldn’t wait for Brian to call me “Mama”.  I complained about it all the time.  It was the one milestone I could not wait for.  I didn’t hear it until he was four years old.  It was worth the wait.

Even though I was so ecstatic for that milestone I immediately attached my heart to another one.  I could not wait for the day for him to say “I love you”.  Sure once he started mimicking things he would say it back to me, but he would never just say it independently.

Tonight, as I tucked him into bed and leaned in to give him a kiss he turned his beautiful eyes towards mine.  He grabbed my cheeks and said, “I yuv you”.

“I yuv you.”

Can you believe it???  The first time he has ever said it independently.  I cried.  I hugged him and kissed him and hugged him some more.  I ran downstairs and shouted it to Corbin.  I cried a little more.

“I yuv you.”

Seriously, nothing can beat that.
