Last week I heard Elinore say love you for the first time! She was repeating after her brothers when saying goodbye to Grandma, she'd been over last week staying with us for a few days.
Tuesday morning she woke up crying for Mommy and Daddy. I think she missed us since we went out for date night Monday night and we were not home to put her to bed. (Date night, so rare!) So we called Daddy at work to say hi and she said love you when it was time to hang up!
Then that morning as we were running around in the van she said love you to me for the first time! Oh was I happy! And due to a few cases of hand, foot and mouth at the day care, I got to spend an unexpected day home with her Tuesday too.
