Daily Dose of Cuteness: Sadie and the Eucharist

Sadie watched everything that goes on, particularly during the Liturgy of the Eucharist, very closely. If she's going to have a breakdown during the Mass it's going to be before the homily is over, after that everything seems to be so interesting that she's too distracted to make a peep (unless it's a little excited squeal!).

Sunday, however, she did something that really made me smile.

We sit in the front row each Sunday, because we've learned that she does much, much better when she has a clear view of everything that's going on. We had already received and were back at our seats with Sadie smiling at everyone as they walked passed to go back to their seats.

After a few minutes she turned around and looked at me and put her hand out and then put it up to her mouth and pretended that she had just received the Eucharist. I whispered, in a tiny voice, "Oh, good girl, now make your sign" and she got this huge smile on her face, made her clumsy little sign of the cross (which really looks like her touching her chest in various spots about eight times) and then put her hands together like she was praying (she's just learned that one too and is thrilled about being able to do it).

It was such a cute moment! I spent the rest of the day smiling!

I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
