Love? No. Spoil? Indulge? Yes.
Love for a child ultimately means doing what's best for them, not only to keep them safe, secure, and happy, but also to nurture, equip, educate, and discipline them.
Some parents, consciously or accidentally, make the mistake of thinking that anything that doesn't involve presents or warm fuzzies isn't love, but that couldn't be further from the truth. Love at its core should be warm, accepting, and unconditional, but love in certain situations requires making the difficult decision to punish a child or even let them fall victim to other consequences of their actions so they can learn. This can be painful to watch. But sometimes love hurts.
If you love your children, you do what is best for them. The love you feel cannot be overdone - but as Eric Newland says, you can overindulge and spoil them. As long as you love them unconditionally, and do what is in their best interest - no it can't be too much.
