Andrew's first sentences, a very long time ago

This one's way, way out of date. It's about Andrew's favourite words, and then his first 3-word and 5-word sentence, all from the first few months of this year, when he was around 21 months. It struck me that there was a certain theme running through these:

favourite words: "More", "Mine", "Me - me - me!"

first 3 word sentence: "Give me some."

first 5 word sentence: "I don't want dat one."

As a child grows, everything changes, yet everything stays the same.

Adulthood in miniature.

Unless Gods breaks in, and turns our hearts away from ourselves and towards him, as I pray he's already doing in the hearts of these precious children of mine.
