A first...

Saturday January 13th, at 8:13am, while sitting at our kitchen table eating pancakes (our Saturday morning ritual), my son, The Happy Boy, calls out to me... "Daddy". "Daddy".

I reply, "Yes, buddy".

"Daddy, I love you", he says.

I spin towards him, and with a half-smile / half-teary eyed, reply, "I love you too".

Awwwwwww.

Cute!! Does he talk a lot??
It's still precious the first time!! Even if I don't have kids, when my nieces say I love you, and give me big hugs, my heart still melt!!
