drawing a face and other recent happenings

her first recognizable drawing

I would say it's her first unassisted recognizable drawing! I just got around to scanning and posting it today, even though she drew it during Bible Study two weeks ago. In her own words, "It's a happy and sad face".

Speaking of Bible Study, I have a cute story from last night. Lilah was sitting on the chair beside me holding my Bible, she held my Bible with one hand and flipped through the whole thing in a matter of seconds with the thumb of the other hand - like you would a flip book or motion picture book. Then she looked up at me and said "I'm a fast reader"! It took a lot to not laugh out loud - where on earth does she learn this stuff?!

I have to mention this happening too, it was on Monday morning past, Lilah was searching for a spoon or something in her crockery drawer and pulled out her (hardly ever used) chopsticks. She held them together as shown in the picture below and said, "Look Mama, I made a cross. God was on the cross." It's incredible how much they take in and understand at this age. I gently told her that the Lord Jesus died for her and me and everyone else in the world, on the cross.

1 Corinthians 15:3&4 - Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the scriptures.

  1. Great picture! I don't know if any of my kids drew a recognizeable picture at such a young age! Thanks for all your lovely comments while we were gone! I may pass on your blog to a family we travelled with from Burlington Ontario, their daughter was from Guangdong as well. Is that ok? There 21mos old hadn't eaten anything solid the whole time in China!!! Anyways they are a lovely family and I'm not sure what orphanage she was in but thought it would be neat for her to read your posts from you trip. I will have to catch up on your past posts soon! Hope you are all well:)

  2. Wow! Looks like you've got a budding artist on your hands. That seems advanced for her age. Great photos, and I love that she's "getting" the Gospel at such a young age.

  3. Save that! (Really. Save it!)

  4. Wow..Lilah and Kate are so much alike. Kate draws faces all the live ling day (especially at Mass). And Kate talks about the cross all the time. I recently posted about it too. AND we have that same shirt:) Lilah is darling!
