WHY????

Justus' new favorite word.
But every word is precious to us!
Even why, (for now) hundreds of times a day.
Does he really want to know why?
I'm not sure.
But it's as clear as day!
Why?
This is him signing it.
It's so cute.
I also melt when he says something resembling "I love you" while shooting me the gang sign that is supposed to be the ILY sign.
That handshape is impossible for two-year-old, adorable, brown hands.

I marvel at his progress in communication.
I marvel that I don't even know where the spanking spoon is right now.
What I used to perceive as crazy, two-year-old rebellion, I now look back and realize it was 90% pure anger and frustration.
His personality is different!
He is cooperative, delightful, SO stinkin' funny! We are enjoying each other now like we were meant to.
I am overwhelmingly thankful to the Lord for preparing me for this sweet boy by making me fluent in ASL long before I knew he would exist in my life.

WHY???
Because God is good.
He is faithful.
He works all things together for the good of those who love him and are called according to HIS purpose.
We love Him, and we are called to whatever God puts before us!
Thank you God for Justus!!!

Oh how I miss sweet little Justus. I'm going to really have to study my signs before I see him next!

You can totally borrow the cd.

Also this is a late comment but I
just got the Day by Day Begin to Read Bible for my girls. It has a short easy reading from the Bible each day. It's by Karyn Henley. Both my girls LOVE being responsible for reading their Bible each day. Julia reads on her own each morning and Alyssa reads to me. Grace children's ministry has them for $10.

I also bought the book you mentioned. We love it! We talk about how each day's reading whispers His name.
