{THE ORDINARY MOMENTS 15} #6 'I LOVE YOU MUMMY'



Amelia had been to playgroup with Nana on Friday morning so Harrison and I got to spend some time together which was nice especially with him being more alert during the daytime. We spent the morning having cuddles and I also caught up on some housework when he slept. When Amelia returned she had the biggest smile on her face, she always does. So I asked her like I do every week if she had a nice time at playgroup and what she got up to. She told me what songs they sang and started dancing and talking about what else they got up to that morning. I love hearing about how much fun she has especially as she really enjoys going now.

Later in the afternoon when Harrison was asleep in his swing we sat down on the floor and read some books together. I like to do something different with her every day when he's asleep to keep our routine the same and so she doesn't think we're not giving her as much attention anymore. We had been reading some of her books for around fifteen minutes or so when my iPhone fell out of my back pocket and Amelia shouted "Cheeeeese" with excitement on her face so I thought it was only right that we snapped a few photos - after all she wanted to take some!

We stayed laying down on the floor rolling around being silly and it was then Amelia turned to me, grabbed my face and kissed me on the lips and said those four special words "I love you mummy". Of course, she's said it countless times before unprompted but it was just that special moment, it nearly brought me to tears. 

The very first time you hear those sweet little words is enough to make you burst with happiness. I tell Amelia that I love her every single day and we always make sure we say our "I love you's" before bed however I never pressure her into saying it - she just does. But it's those spontaneous moments when they just come out with it when you least expect that melt your heart.

I feel so lucky to have someone say those words to me with unconditional love. I think we sometimes take moments like these for granted, sometimes we don't even acknowledge them but to hear those special words even on the worst of days will instantly make you happy. I can't wait to hear Harrison say them too. 


and of course Harrison can't speak yet but I just had to include this photo of us both :)
