Julian Prays (Still No Baby)
A couple of things to know is that we've done a lot of praying for people with their pregnancies over this past year. I've had a lot of family and friends who've been pregnant and or have wanted to be. Julian's prayers got whittled down to one phrase, "Please bless Chuck and Steph to have a baby." Chuck and Steph are my brother and his wife who struggled to get pregnant for awhile. Julian has a particular fondness for Chuck and Steph, so pretty soon, he cut everyone else out of his prayers. Steph is now pregnant with triplets. (Get on Julian's good side, or bad side depending on how you look at it, and he may pray you triplets too). So lately, since he's clearly helped Chuck and Steph out enough, we've been encouraging him to add a few more things to his prayers--heaven forbid a quad shows up in Steph.
"Jules, let's think about some other things you're grateful for too. What about preschool, and playing with Jones?"
First attempt: Still only Chuck and Steph.
"That was great Julian, now let's try again and see if you can add anything else you're grateful for."
"Heavenly Father, please bless Chuck and Steph to have a baby, and please bless mommy's baby but I think it is a rock but it is actually a baby. Amen."
