As the phrase goes, “love needs no words”. I agree. It does not. Courtney tells me she loves me when I’m the one who is able to calm her during a meltdown. Courtney tells me she loves me when she cuddles up to me in the middle of the night. Courtney tells me she loves me when she grabs my arms and puts them around her. Courtney has never said, “I love you mom”, but loves needs no words. I know she loves me. Courtney is now telling me she loves me when she uses her talker to say, “want mom”. She is asking for me. When she wants her mommy, she is asking for me.
Love needs no words but we still yearn to feel their love however they may show it. So when I get a task from my husband and the nanny both stating that Courtney communicated that she wanted me, you know darn right I cried tears of joy as I felt her love grab on to me. I love you too, Courtney.
Picture is of me FaceTiming with Courtney after she communicated to the nanny that she wanted me. Nanny got me on FaceTime to show Courtney that she can still see me even when I am not home.
