Tonight as I was laying Roland down he sleepily said "Mommy..." expecting a request for a drink or his pacifier I asked "What Roley?" He responded "Love you."
Sometime around his first birthday Roland stopped giving us kisses (he now usually reserves those for Hazel, although he did kiss my belly today saying "Baby kisses, mwah!") and tonight was the first time he has ever told me he loves me without prompting.
Sometimes it really is the little things.
