The pumpkin as usurper

We've been trying to get Brody to say "I love you" to us, but so far, he won't, unless we prompt him. He will say it, and he does it in this little sing songy voice. It melts my whole heart when he does, even if I know we had to prompt him to say it.

The day of Brody's surgery as we were driving to the hospital, we drove through a neighborhood that had many fall decorations on porches: pumpkins, scarecrows, corn, etc.

I hear him say from the backseat, as we drive by another porch of pumpkins, in that sing songy voice, "I love you punkin."

Such a sweetie! How's he doing?
Phoebe also says she loves things we see, especially the cows as we go to my parents' house.

Awwww! How sweet! Rylie usually only says it to us after we say it to her first. I so treasure the spontaneous I love you's. But the "punkin" part? That makes it PRICELESS.

won't you miss it when instead of saying, "pummin" as Kevin does, they say it right. He'll say "I love it," but mostly about The Wiggles."

I'm with Dawn, I think "Punkin" is your new nickname. :)
