Oh the Words They Say
Alaena has reached that stage where she's starting to repeat some things. If you say a word several times, she'll repeat it. I have a feeling she's going to be a bit of a jabberbox, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
Last night I was pointing out different things in one of her books, and she said "book", "moon" and a very emphatic, "OWL!" All while repeatedly telling Colby, our dog, "NO!! NO!! Bit!" But when we had finished her book, she pointed to my Bible and said, "Bible" as clear as day. And it made my heart more glad than I can tell you.
Because although she may not understand all that's going on yet, she knows what a Bible is. And that is a start. A start to a long journey we have ahead of us.
I can't believe we are almost to her first birthday. It doesn't seem possible that time has gone by so quickly, but I ask that you continue to keep both of us in your prayers that I may continue to teach my little girl in the way that is right!
