For the past several weeks Ryan has been saying "layou" or "I-layou" whenever we say I love you or love you to him. He knows that we usually give hugs, kisses or cuddles when we say those words. Well last night I was getting ready to head out for a Mom's Night Out. I came to Ryan and gave him a kiss on the cheek. Out of the blue he says to me "I-layou". His sweet words and voice brought tears to my eyes. It was the first time that he said I love you without being prompted to say it. He is such a sweet little boy. I never want to forget these precious little moments!
