“I love you too, Mommy”- the words that I have been waiting to hear finally came out of Harper’s mouth last night while I was tucking her into bed. I literally cried with joy. My heart is totally overflowing with gratitude and pride and overwhelming love for this child that sometimes I don’t even think I can take it!
Her vocabulary has been steadily increasing over the past months, and up until last night, she’s usually responded with a barely audible, whispered “yuv Mommy”, but last night it was loud and clear. (Ok, the “love” may have sounded more like “yuv”, but I know what she meant!)
I am so over-the-moon excited about this new development– more so than I even expected I would be. Obviously I was excited for the time when she would clearly communicate with me but so much more now that she’s communicating feelings, and not just needs. Moments like that make every second of worrying or stressing over what’s best for her worthwhile. I’m just in awe of the amazing little person that she’s becoming right before my eyes.
