The other way on the way home from swim lessons, we were discussing the fact that Ben is becoming such a big boy. Chris said, "Ben, are you a big boy?" His response was "NO, I a Baby!" Chris insisted again and said "No, you are a big boy!" and he said, "No, I'm Baby Ben!"
So fast forward a few days, and I am reading him his stories before bed. I said "I love you Ben! Do you love mommy?" He laid his head down on my lap and said, I still baby Ben." "Baby loves you."
And then I dissolved into a puddle of goo and read him like 5 extra books.
