7 signs that your child loves you...

Babycenter sends daily e-mails about what's going on with your baby and I love reading these little tidbits of info every morning. They sent "7 signs that your child loves you" yesterday~

1 Your newborn stares into your eyes — he's actually working hard to memorize your face. He doesn't understand anything else about the world, but he knows you're important.
2 Your baby thinks about you even when you're not around. Between 8 and 12 months old, he'll start to scrunch his face and look around when you leave the room — and he'll smile when you return.
3 Your toddler throws wicked tantrums. Nope, those screaming fits don't mean he's stopped loving you. He wouldn't be so hurt and angry if he didn't trust you so deeply.
4 Your toddler runs to you for comfort when he falls down or feels sad. Kids this age may not truly understand the meaning of "I love you," but their actions speak louder than words.
5 Your preschooler gives you a flower picked from the garden, a finger-painted heart, a sparkly rock, or another gift.
6 Your preschooler wants your approval. He'll start to be more cooperative around the house, and he'll look for chances to impress. "Look at me!" will become a catchphrase.
7 Your grade-schooler trusts you with secrets, like his first crush or his most embarrassing moment. You're his confidante, even if he shies away from your hugs in public.

The only one that pertains to us at this point is number 1 which made me giddy...below is the evidence that he does indeed LOVE me :)

His shirt was a joke for our CPA that has been doing my hubby's taxes for 15 years. She, inturn, gave us a bib that says "I'm a new tax deduction!" And, we thought we were being so clever!
