never thought I would hear this, we have been saying I love to ds and his speech has come on over the last 3 months (now 4.5) so the echoalia has kicked in and he started saying it back, which was lovely.

last night said 'good night ds snuggle down' and he said without any prompting 'I lu you'

cue one melted mummy!grin

I love it when people post about those little breakthroughs. Of course they're actually massive and they mean so much for so many reasons.

Really happy for you. smile

Thanks guys! I shared it cos know you all 'get' it. It was one of things that was one of 'my secret sorrows', (you know those things you see other kids do and think to yourself, never gonna happen for us... IYSWIM) and it did!

Lovely signandsmile. I waited until my son was 4 yrs too, so totally understand.

Saw on another thread you have a faith - prayers answered smile.

signandsmile that gave me a meltingmummy moment reading that and remembering my own son saying that for the first time (quite recently). There is nothing like it. And whether or not they know what it means (and it sounds like your ds does smile ) - we know that they do love us, in their own inimitable fashion.

I remember when ds3 did this about a year ago, he was about the same age. I had picked him up from nursery and was staping him into his car seat, I kissed his forhead and said 'love you' to which he kissed me back and said 'yuv yoo' and I was extatic, I ran back to the nursery to tell his TA. It is lovely isn't smile
