Oh, I Love You

Many times during each day I pick up Henry and usually when I do I usually give him a tight squeeze and say, "Oh, I love you."
Well, a few days ago I picked him up, hugged him, and said, "Oh, I love you."  I noticed he said something back.  I hugged him said it again and he said something back again.  I tried it a third time and really listened to what he was saying.  It sounded something like "Ooov you."  I realized he was trying to say, "I love you."  It was so sweet and the first time he tried to say those three little words.  My heart melted!  I love my sweet little guy!

PS...Notice the huge bruise on his forehead?  Whenever he gets mad, he bangs his head on purpose.  Usually he'll bend down and hit it on the floor, even if it's tile.  Sometimes he'll walk over and bang it on the wall or refrigerator.  If he wakes up from his nap and I don't get him quick enough, he'll hit it on his crib bars.  If there's nothing around to bang it on, he'll just hit himself on the forehead.  It's really frustrating to me because, obviously, I don't want him hurting himself!  But, at the same time, he does it for attention and kind of out of spite.  Devin used to do it when he was a baby and toddler, so maybe it's genetic!

The good news is, Jaxon never did anything like it.  Oh, wait, that was until he saw Henry doing it and so now Jaxon does it sometimes too.

How cute. I love when kids respond and say that without being prompted.
