Bedtime routines are crucial in our little household. Even to the last detail...like reading while sipping on a cup of milk, Livy turning out the light, and, most importantly, rounding up all her babies to go night-night with her. Well last night we finished the list of tasks with a bedtime prayer as usual. Olivia folds her hands sometimes but always watches with a smile. This time, after I finished and said "Amen" she shifted her gaze off me, turned on her side, folded her hands, and in her sweet elfish voice said, "Daddy. Ah-min." Her first self-composed prayer. Brought tears to my eyes, and Daddy was pretty happy to hear the story when he got home from work last night. I think we all had sweet dreams after that.
