Unquantifiable love

Evie, "Mommy, I love you a million six ninety thousand hundred forty-eight."

Me, "I love you that much too!"

Luke, "Mommy, I love you a googolplexplex."

Me, "Thanks Luke. I love you guys more than I can say!"

FYI - About a year ago Luke asked me what the biggest number is and I told him that there isn't a biggest number. This was more than he could comprehend so I suggested that we Google it. So, I typed in, "What is the biggest number?" Of course, I consulted Wikipedia, because that is obviously the truest source of mathematical wisdom, right? Wikipedia identified the largest number as a googolplex. And after consulting other similar pages, we settled on a googolplexplex as the largest number (at least that I was willing to research and discuss). So, I get a lot of love as you can see!

What about "I love you to infinity"?

You know what, never mind.... I like your word better anyway. :)

We went there but explaining infinity was worse.
