For the longest time Samuel would not say "I love you". He wouldn't even say the word "love". He will repeat almost anything you tell him, but each time we'd say "I love you" he would just laugh. We could get him to repeat "I" and "you" but he wouldn't give it up with the "love"! You can count the number of times we have gotten an "I love you" out of him on one hand! What he thinks is really cute is to say "Love Me" after you tell him "I love you". Here he is hamming it up:
Later in the day I caught Samuel being nice to Joel. He didn't know I was around and was actually being sweet to his brother (a rarity these days!).
