QOTW: “Wuv You”

Mark it down right now folks, May 9, 2012 may be my best day ever.  It’s the day my miracle preemie said two words I’ve said to him at least a million times…

“Wuv you.”

I posted the good news on Facebook and was completely overwhelmed with the 130+ likes, comments and sweet messages.  Luke has been in some sort of therapy for 28 of his 32 months of life.  I’ve repeated those words to him, whispered them in his ear, prayed them fervently to God and imprinted them on my heart in hopes that someday, SOMEDAY, he would repeat them back to me.

It was a blissfully normal Wednesday morning.  We had just finished breakfast and I scooted into the office to check e-mail.  I heard the familiar, pat-pat-pat, of Luke’s feet.  He made the sign for “milk” while saying “nup.”  It’s his sweet way of saying it and I can’t bring myself to correct him.  I scooped him up in my arms, kissed him on the cheek and whispered in his ear, “Oh, Luke, I love you.”

“Wuv. You,” he said back.  I paused for just a moment and then completely broke down, crying the happiest tears I’ve ever shed.

Clare came in to see the commotion and added, “Luke is the greatest baby ever.”

I’m not sure I will ever fully appreciate those two words Luke spoke to me this week.  Now, he’s saying them all the time and I’m still tearing up. {crying right now!}  I did what any good mother would do and videoed him saying it about five-million times 🙂  I cannot stop smiling when he does his eyebrows.

We may not have it all figured out and there may still be mountains to climb, but little Luke is a fighter.  I am so incredibly proud to be his mom.  I told someone the other day that he is single-handedly going to get our entire family to heaven.  That boy has a wonderful life ahead of him.  Won’t it be fun when he starts blogging?!

I’ll give you more QOTW later today.  For now, bask in the joy of this one!

    It still makes me cry! Awesome. Just awesome. Cheering for you and Luke! And I am sure you have underestimated how many times you have said it, thought it, prayed it by a bazillion or more times.

    OK, I’m crying and Luke doesn’t even “wuv me” ! What a beautiful witness you are to so many, thank you! BTW, I love the way he forms his little mouth to say it, so sweet and proper!!

    God bless!
