Self-esteem and grammar kudos

Last night Lucas and I were talking after Kevin read stories.

Lucas: I like my mommy and daddy. And I like my dog Maggie too.
Me: That's nice. We like you and we love you too.
Lucas: I love you guys too.
Me: Do you like yourself?
Lucas: Yeah, I like myself. Do you and daddy like yourselves?
Me: Yes, we do.
Lucas: We ALL like ourselves. And my friend and buddies like themselves too.

First of all, I love it when he says nice things like that and that he can say "I like myself".
Secondly, I can't help but be proud that he correctly uses reflexive pronouns.
