"I love you Aiden"
"I love you too"
At two years old it is hard to tell if he is simply repeating what he is supposed to say or if he truly feels it.  That heart wrenching love I feel for him.  So I ask him.
"Do you? What do you love about me"
He responded with "nothing"
I saw that this wasn't going just as I had planned so I tried a new tactic.
"You know why I love you?"
"I love the way you play with your toys, your eyes, the way you smell, the way you laugh, the way you say please and thank you, the way you sound when you say pwobly. Now what do you love about me?"
As I looked into those precious eyes he got a silly little smirk on his face.
 (much like his fathers)
"I love your KISSES" 
he squealed as he covered my face with wet sloppy kisses
lets face it
this kids got my heart.

I guarantee you he feels it. Babies and toddlers are almost all emotion. Even if the words don't quite gel. The emotion is there.

Very cute. When my oldest was little he used to say "Mommy, I love you more than the stars in the sky." I'm not sure he ever knew what that meant but now that he is 14 he has gotten very good at showing me how much he loves me in his own little ways.

That is just too sweet. It is the best feeling in the world when they can verbalize the love that you share. He is a doll!
