He said AMEN!

I'm not sure if everyone knows, but Micah's speech is a little delayed. He doesn't speak as many words as a normal 2 1/2 year old would because he had so many ear infections his first year. That is such a big time in the speech development of kids and the ear infections make it sound like people are speaking at you underwater. But, little by little, he seems to be learning new words.
Last night, we were putting Micah to bed. We always pray together with him before he goes to bed. So we prayed for all of our family and friends and said Amen. We asked Micah if he would say Amen, and sure enough, he said Amen! I was so excited! We kept asking him to say it again. What a great birthday present (it was my birthday yesterday)!
I have a tendency to worry, and John keeps reminding me that Micah will learn in his own time. And he was right. It sure makes a Mama proud! Just wanted to share.
