Ds just turned 2, and sometimes when he's nursing he'll pop off and very sweetly say "thank you, mommy" then latch back on.

I love the bear hugs around the neck and DD says in this big cooing voice, "oh Mommy, I love you so much!"

Ds, 3, looking at a wedding picture with dh "Mama looks so pretty in that princess dress".
And something he does, not says - when he comes into our bed, he wants to lay in the middle flat on his back, with one arm around each of our necks, and that's how he'll go back to sleep

The other day, I was teaching my DS, 20 mo, his last name. I pointed to him and said, "Jude Greene!" He looked down, grabbed a handful of his shirt, and said, "Nooooo. Jude blue."

DS is gonna be 3 on Valentine's Day.

Lately it's "I love our baby, mama. I'm gonna hug the baby and kiss the baby and change the baby's butt!"

He loves to make his sisters laugh. Last night at dinner he tossed his napkin in to the center of the table while making a high pitched shriek. It caught us all off guard and we cracked up, so he did it another half a dozen times, looking at each of our faces in turn to make sure we were still laughing. Then he said, very seriously, "I love my family so much."

There are a lot more. He comes up with something at least twice a day lately.

My son turned three this past September. He has been slow to talk and is just now getting into some three, occasionally four, word sentences.

We've been working on using the potty, and when we were at a relative's house for Christmas, my husband took ds in to go potty. He came out laughing, and when I asked him what he was laughing at, he said that he had asked ds if he wanted to try pooping in the potty. To which ds emphatically replied, "No poop. Christmas!"

It really isn't a speak but it was the sweetest thing...

I usually kiss TG on the forehead just before bed.

Tonight, while night nursing, she de-latched, crawled up to me, pushed my hair off my forehead and kissed me gently on my forehead. She leaned back and stared at me and smiled. Then she went back to nursing.

No words but it spoke volumes to this mommy.

Pantrygirl - awww. That made my heart melt.

Our son Gabriel is 26 months. His crib is at the food of our bed. Yesterday morning he said, "I happy. I wake up and see mama and baba in big bed."

He also goes to daycare 2 days a week. The other day on the way home from picking him up he said, "I go work; Mama, Baba go daycare." :-)

"Hug! Fam'ly!" as she hugs both dh and me.

"I luv you too, Mamma."

When I am fighting the need to scream out profanities after smacking my knee of the doorframe (it happens an absurd number of times in any given week), "Don't worry, Mamma. Help you find it."

While the Christmas tree was up, she would grab a hand and say, "C'mon Momma/Daddy, find Christmas!" She also ran up to the tree and shouted, "Ah, Christmas tree! Hug!" and then hugged the tree. . . . literally a treehugger.

When she passes gas, even by herself, "Scuse me," or she'll tap me on the shoulder to get my attention while saying, "Scuse me, Momma . . . um, 'scuse me."

And she never just says, "No," it's always, "No, thank you," so I can't even get that annoyed that she wants to be disagreeable b/c she's being so politely disagreeable.
