How old was your LO when they first started saying "I love you" intentionally?

My daughter was 2 when she would intentionally say "I love you" to people. She could copy us at a younger age though.

He was 3.5 when he started saying it on his own and not as a reply when someone said it to him. He tells us he loves us often and it's super sweet

My DD was 18 months or so. She couldn't say much else then so she'd come up to me, give me a kiss, and say "I love you" at least three times.

I don't remember for sure. I think my son was somewhere between 2 and 3, probably closer to 3. My daughter is almost 2, and she doesn't say it yet.
