Although Kevin and I regularly tell Evan we love him, he has never been one to reciprocate. You would ask him, “Do you love me?” and he would grin and shake his head no. It has only been in the last few weeks that he reciprocates by saying “I Love you too”. You don’t realize how much those words mean or how you have longed to hear them until they are said.

Another really sweet thing happened last night. Kevin is back to working two nights per week at the golf course and since it gets dark later and later, Evan is generally asleep by the time he gets home. On those nights, Evan wants to know when Daddy is coming home, why is he working late and can get whiny. He generally will not even play in the bathtub very long either. Last night, Evan was getting ready for bed and had just finished brushing his teeth when Kevin got home earlier than usual for a golf course working night. Evan threw himself in Kevin’s arm and hugged him and told him “I missed you”. He sat right beside Kevin on the bed while we read bedtime books and would keep hugging and telling him “I missed you”. It was such a sweet and heart melting moment.
