I Love You!
Reed hears us say several things each day. One thing that he hears a lot is "No!" I am sure that many of our "reed"ers are used to telling their little ones this all important word.
Lately, Reed has also been hearing, "Will you show me that pretty smile?" Partly because it is so goofy and cute as evidenced in the pictures above, and partly because Reed is such a happy little guy.
Reed also hears "Can I have my toothbrush back?" because he absolutely loves our toothbrushes and he is totally not afraid to take one out of the drawer and walk around "brushing" his teeth.
Reed also hears, "What do you want for breakfast?" like he did this morning when we went to our Sunday morning regular Hardees.
Of all the things that Reed hears, I think that the thing that he hears the most is "I love you." Abbey and I are not afraid to tell Reed we love him repeatedly. Each night, as I am rocking him to sleep, I also finish up our little time together by saying, "I love you buddy, I love you so much."
So far, Reed has not returned the "I love you" verbally, but it is quite evident in the way he beams when he sees us, or by the way he reaches for us for no apparent reason right in the middle of playing. He loves us and boy do we love him! How about you? What words do your children hear daily? I hope that you are quite liberal in the sprinkling of "love you's" throughout your child's day.
