She broke my heart today.  We were playing down in our basement which is set up as her playroom.  She was going down the stairs and peaked through the spindles and WITH NO PROMPTING FROM ME she said….”La-Loo Mommy” and did the sign for I love you.  I squeeled and hugged her like crazy.  

I’ve been signing it every time I tell her I love her, and today she finally got it.  Oh, my exploding heart. 

Then I ran for my camera to see if she’d do it again….

Motherhood isn’t a paid gig, but this is payment enough.
