A Child's Faith

Joey: "I have a lot of friends."

Me: "Yes you do. You're a friendly guy."

Joey: "And my brothers are my friends too. And my baby sister is my friend too."

Me: "Your baby sister?"

Joey: "Yep. My baby sister is my friend too."

Me: "Honey, you don't have a baby sister."

Joey: "Uh-huh! I asked God for a baby sister, and He said 'Yes'!"

Me: "Oh. Ohhh-kay."

I don't know how so much affection can be wrapped up in one Joey. He's so adorably cute. I don't think you and Todd can disappoint him.

Roxy Wishum said...

Congratulations!

Roxy Wishum said...

Sandy C. said...

Wait. Wait. Wait....are you? Really? Is your little man a baby whisperer? :)
Keeping my fingers crossed!

Lisa said...

Wouldn't she be the cutest little thing?

Goosey always says she asks God for triplet babies. I tell her that wouldn't happen, and she always tells me that's up to God.

I hope God hears Joey louder than he hears Goosey!

Molly's Mom said...

Hmm...a little psychic? :)

Cyndi said...

My daughter talks about her big sister all the time. She will see a pretty girl on tv, like around 18 and say, hey! why is my sister on tv? Weird.

MamaGeek said...

I think we all know what THIS means. :)

Mandy said...

Hmmm. Maybe he's got an "in", and knows something you don't. :-)

That sweetie pie...

Head Gaggler said...

Aww, how sweet. Now if only it worked that way.

Tonya said...

That is so cute. I have a friend who said her kids sabotaged her with prayers for another baby! My oldest prayed for a baby sister for years and she finally got one and she is the happiest little girl in the world until her sister starts wanting to play with her toys :)

lime said...

i'd be laughing if i didn't have a son who was 'ordered up' by his oldest sister when she was 4. let us know when you're due ;)

Jewelgirl said...

A baby girl would be wonderful,
nothing like the momma-daughter bond
you'll share........ until the teen
years! LOL It would be nice to
have 3 older big brothers to adore
her..... Joey is sooooo sweet!

4 Little Men & Twins said...

Hmmmm.... Gavin told us we were having twins before we knew. Kids have that direct line to God you know. :)

How?! How?! I was just here, commented on a post and a couple of hours later there's a new one with 34 comments already?!
Anyway. I'll mail the baby girl things as soon as you say when-- wait, forget you, what do you know. Have Joey ring me.

Immoral Matriarch said...

Oooo!!! I'll be waiting for the annoucement. LOL

just jamie said...

I think he's on to something.

painted maypole said...

hmmm... could he ask god a few questions for me?

Sandi McBride said...

How far along on the nursery are you now? LOL...cause if a little child asks, you better believe it's in the works one way or another...
Congrats on the Post of the Day mention at David's
Sandi

scrap chair potato said...

Will you ask him to pray for me to have a girl too? ;) Then I just might think about having another baby.

Craver Vii said...

That's funny, but it would be so great if God gave him what he asked for. I love it when my kids join me in prayer, and isn't it cool that when children talk to God, it isn't fairy-tales and make-believe, but He hears the desires of their little hearts? I hope he keeps on praying, understanding more and more every day.

CrazyCath said...

Uh-oh! Watching THAT space.... ;0)

Over from David's.

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
