Sadie's Fervent Prayer...
Sadie: "In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, Amen... God..." this was followed by a string of words that I couldn't hear clearly and then... "Baby!"
Me: After a long pause "Did you just ask God to send us another baby?"
Me: Wondering if being around all the little brothers her friends have has changed anything: "Are you asking for a boy or a girl or both?" Yeah, I know, in hindsight I probably shouldn't encourage her obsession with having a house full of sisters (I think that's one of the reasons she loves the movie Therese), but I was hoping she might not be quite as... against have a brother as she was a few months ago...
Sadie: "A boy!" (Yay! A breakthrough... momentarily) and then another pause: "A girl! A girl! Girl, girl, girl. God, a Girl!!!!" So apparently she does still have quite strong feelings about it.
Me: "Can you say thank you for our day?"
Sadie: "Thank you God for our beautiful day!"
So yeah. She's still campaigning for a sibling. The last time she asked me about a new baby I told her she should pray and ask God. So she is. She's taking her baby-campaign to a whole new level...
