Small and so precious

Caleb is not much of a talker on the phone (which is okay since as my brother Brian put it so well when he gets on the phone he starts to speak in tongues). I never knew how hard he was to understand on the phone. Needless to say I haven't really had much meaningful conversations with him. Most of them go something along the lines of, "I will talk to you when you come here, bye."

When I talked to Caleb yesterday I got the same rushed impossible to understand conversation and a too quick "bye." After talking to Kate for a few minutes Caleb came back and I heard him ask to say something else. She gave him the phone and in a clear slow tone he said,

"I love you"


I wont ever forget the sound of that little voice uttering those sweet words to his Mama.

Those are called the "precious moments" that come all to infrequently to mommy's. I'm glad you had a precious moment. Mom's are never too old or too tired to hear an I love you.

OH, how sweet! I can't wait til Samantha can say I love you! Even though I feel it when she comes and cuddles or gives me a hug it will be nice to hear it!
