"i love you, mommmm," says Jax.

** i love u **

Those 3 words Jax has probably heard 5 billion times.
He has told us a thousand times before he loves us....
-with that sweet look that says "i LOVE u," w/ no words at all.
-a hug for no reason.
-every morning laying his head on my shoulder,  softly playing with my hair
 -looking out the window longing for daddy, to come home from work
-the pure joy & excitement in those big eyes, only daddy walking through the door can bring
-how he truly cares if mama gets an owie.
-how he thinks mommy & daddy are the 2 coolest peeps in the world
(Besides Lightning Mqueene, of course)

So.... Jax talks a lot, but has never fully said I love you.
Last Saturday afternoon before nap, we got a "Christmas present" surprise!
We always tuck him in for nappy together on the weekends.
We have our usual kissy & huggy routine, both from mama & daddy.

say LOVE you the most, Bubbalou. (1 of our many Jaxy nicknames)

& it's nap time (yay)

Then, out of nowhere...
The sweetest voice says, 
"love you, dad."
......."love you, mommmm."
(!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Well it was more like...
"I wuv YOU, DaD" 
"I wuv youeee, mommm"
Not gonna lie, got a little happy/teary eyed.
I can neither confirm nor deny, daddy did to?
REALLY good stuff.
A St. Patty's Day to remember!

I adore this pic. 
I swear his eyes are smiling.

So sweet! I can't stand it! The "l" sound is the last. I know this for sure, as both of my kids have L names. They were wuke and wucy for so many years, and I love hearing those sounds from kids...such special moments. Thanks for sharing!

Isn't it great. Aubrey just started saying it about a week and a half ago. She says it every time she gives a kiss or a big hug. I'm not totally sure she knows what she is saying though because she also makes her Minnie and Mickey kiss and says "I Love You". Regardless of if she knows what she is saying or not it is still super sweet.

Susan said...

Oh my...just stunning!!!

Sean Marie said...
