There are certain milestones that don't ever make it into the pre-printed baby books. One of them happened tonight. Addison prayed all by himself for the very first time. The last part of the bedtime routine is prayer, and usually Trey or I lead the boys in a simple one. Tonight after I finished, Addison said, "Mama, I want to pray too." This is how it went:
"Dear Heavenly Fadder, fank you for today. Fank you for playing wif Davis and sharing toys, and watching duh news wif Daddy. I love you. Dear Heavenly Fadder, allmen."
I was left quite speechless and more than a little misty-eyed.
