3 squeezes

For the longest time while holding Lexi's hand I say, "I love you" and squeeze her hand 3 times, one for each word.  When we walk to her classroom each school day holding hands, I squeeze her hand 3 times.  Sometimes I say the words and sometimes I don't (I of course say "I love you" as I drop her off at the classroom door).  Lexi started squeezing my hand in return.  On Thursday, as we were walking down the hallway, we ran into a friend.  I was talking to the mom while holding Lexi's hand.  Lexi squeezed my hand 3 times before I squeezed hers.  I know she knows it means, "I love you" and I love how it is our little thing.  :)
