Middle Child has started picking up on some of the common sayings in prayers within our religion. Things like:

Bless this food to strengthen and nourish our bodies
Bless us all to return home safely
Please bless the missionaries
Bless the sick and afflicted

It has been quite comical and entertaining as he pulls a new one out. Somehow the kid keeps growing up, older and bigger.

Soon after the Haiti earthquake Baby started blessing the quake victims in every single prayer. He is sweet like that. When he had a very sick Cub Scout leader he blessed her constantly. One night soon after the quake he reprimanded Middle Child for forgetting to bless the quake victims.

Middle Child replied, not to be outdone by his little brother, "I think they fall under 'sick and afflicted!'"

Ah, yes, nothing like having a sibling to critique your prayers! Good comeback, though.

So they also become more entertaining as they grow older. Too good.
