A fan of Jesus

After lunch today, Ian was about to head back to work, leaving me to clean up Niev and dishes. He normally helps clean up Niev so this was something new (but I had stolen a bite of his ice cream so he said that I didn't deserve his help. He was going back to work). I then turned to Niev and said, "Who do you want to get you cleaned up? Mommy or Daddy?" Ian and I then took turns whispering the other person's name: "Mommy?" "No, Daddy." "No, Mommy", etc.

Niev got a very serious look in her eye, leaned across the table and whispered, "Jesus".

I guess she knows who her real friends are.

PS--Ian did end up cleaning her up; I have the best husband!

Her newest fascination--stickers stick to anything, even me!

The sweet words of babes. Niev is such a little sweety.

I bet Jesus ALWAYS wants to do the dishes and clean up Niev. True story.

So cute!

BTW, I laughed at your comment on my blog. Here's an explanation as to why I didn't mention the whole leaving Boston thing. 1) I thought those that wanted to could put two and two together 2) There may be some people out there (like the adoptive family) that read my blog and think it's not so great to do that, even in my circumstance. So I left that detail out. :)

That is really sweet. Good for you for stealing a bit of Ian's ice cream, what are wives for? But even better that Ian still cleaned up for you. Hope you had a good thanksgiving.

She should become a facebook fan of him...I believe you can become a facebook fan of Jesus. President Monson and Barack Obama have quite the fan base on facebook.

Adorable! Jared and I do that all the time to Kyser - I'll say in a really boring voice, "do you want mommy to read you stories" ... and then in a super excited tone say "or daddy!!!"
