From the Mouths of Babes


So, when Mackenna was just learning a few words, I taught her this cute little game: I'd ask a question and she'd answer in her sweet baby sing-song voice, "Meeee!" Here are some examples: "Who loves Daddy?" "Meeee!" or "Who loves to eat apples?" "Meeee!" It really was quite cute, but I think she's outgrown it. Yesterday, I was holding and snuggling her and posed the question, "Who loves Momma?" Her quick reply? "Jesus." Who can argue with that? I guess my telling her that Jesus loves her has gotten through and she's even figured out that He loves others, too. Not bad for a twenty-one month-old.
