Another First

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.

Oh, you must have fought back tears at how precious that was to hear her say! I can only imagine how happy it made Aaron, too :)

Thanks for sharing such a sweet and unforgettable moment!

Those are the best. I love bed time just because we all pray and then I sing songs to them and tuck them in. Last Sunday we sang Jesus loves me and I cried the whole way thru because Ronnie said Mommy that's MY nighttime song.
Sounds like Livvy really loves her Daddy.... and Mommy too!

Aw, I'm tearing up right now. What a sweet moment!

I'm glad you liked my videos! I have to keep those grandparents far, far away informed of the cute little things they miss!
