Joshua II laughed out loud for the first time yesterday. It was so adorable to hear it for the first time. He smiles so big at us now too.
On the way home from Vacation Bible School, I asked the girls what they did that day. Annie replied, "Nufing, we just hanged out."
I knew my efforts were futile when upon trying to wake Maggie from a late afternoon nap, she grumbled,"Yeave me a yone." Good night then.
Annie said to me while displaying some DVD in a portable case, "These are the movies that I grew up with."
I told the girls that they needed to pick up toys. After picking up a few, Annie replied "that's enough, I have to focus on my baby (doll)."
But even more wonderful and tear-jerking was when he stood before my mother's grave on the Feast of the Archangels and prayed for her soul.
It was amazing and so beautiful to have our Bishop, Bernard Hebda, have a Mass here and dedicate the Archangel Grotto.
On the way to Mass, Annie unprompted said,"Your mommy is in Heaven. You miss her. Mary takes care of your mommy in Heaven."
