young love

After riding quietly in the car for a good five minutes yesterday, Cooper suddenly blurted out, "Lincolns luff mee."

I thought, "What?"

Of course, if I don't repeat what he says to show that I understand, Cooper will repeat the same phrase over and over and over again.

"Lincolns luff mee."  (Seeing it spelled out, I wonder why I didn't understand it.)

"Lincoln's laughing?"

"No, Lincolns luff mee."

After trying a few phrases, I finally I got it: "Lincoln loves you?"

"Yes!  Lincolns luff mee!"

"Yes, Lincoln does love you Cooper.  He's very lucky to have a brother like you."

What a sweet kid.
