Just now as we were tucking Josiah into bed. After daddy had walked out of the room; I was getting dirty clothes out of his closet for laundry. Steve had once again - like EVERY other night been the hero and found "monie"(binki) for bed time. (Yes! "monie" is still around only now that Josiah is a BIG boy for preschool and goes pee-pee in the toilet like BIG boys, "monie" is just there for night -night. CUZ BIG BOY'S 'like cool cousin Roque' DON'T HAVE "monie's")
So every night even though "monie is supposed to stay on his pillow & wait for him! Some how as Josiah pulls down his comforter to jump into bed or sometime after bath time between prayers and lights out "monie" get's lost ALMOST every night! BUT thanks to "Daddy" bedtime is saved cuz "monie" is found and tucked in with Josiah!
So tonight when Steve walked out of the room I said, "Josiah, who has the best daddy?" Josiah replies in a very confident matter- of -fact[loud] voice, "ME!" and just as I took my first step out of his room he pulls "monie" out of his mouth and procliams [even louder] "HIM MY BEST FRIEND, MOMMY!!" I looked back at my baby boy, smiled at him and said, "Yes, baby daddy is your best friend!" Daddy calls from the dining table, "your my best friend too!" Josiah pulls out "monie once more and says,[in a sleepy quiet voice] "forever!"
i thank You Lord for moments like these!!!!!!


  1. SO sweet! What a blessing that boy is as is his sweet daddy!

  2. Marie - I am praying especially for Steve. Three years ago my youngest daughter had a miscarriage. It was exactly the same time as my eldest found out she was expecting triplets. No one knew that child as intimately as my daughter had - she told me she was pregnant as she was in the process of loosing the babe. Because of the high risk of my eldest daughter's pregnancy, none of us, including her husband, grieved and appreciated this loss as we should have. Her story is one of loss, sin, redemption. I would love to share it with you, but do not want to clog your blog! If you would like to hear it, please email me at I love Josiah's picture. He is so cute!! Keep trusting His heart Marie!

  3. That is a very sweet!! Daddy's are very special...Mommy's too :)

  4. Wow,that is so special!Out of the mouths of babes!

    I went to Jolene's appointment with her and her Doctor almost seems scared to deliver Noah. She is worried that the cele will be hard and be an obstruction and that it will be risky. Was Elijah's soft or hard? Did you cover it at all? My friend has offered to knit some hats, but how do we know what to prepare for? Did you have him early and was it natural? I know you have probably bloged about it but I don't have the time right now to go back and read it!

    Talk to you soon.
