baby development & Jesus

One of the most amazing thoughts to me over this past holiday season is that Jesus Christ, the King of kings and Lord of lords, was once a baby. Since I have a baby girl, Abby, I know what babies do--they drool, slobber, babble, poop their pants, wake up in the night crying, make a mess, and are generally very powerless. It has put a real feeling on the Christmas story, knowing that Jesus--who was fully human--did all those same things. My friend, Chris Gonzalez, had similar thoughts on his blog.

Anyway, we experienced a great new milestone on New Year's Day as Abby rolled over for the first time. She did it a few more times and we caught one on video. I rejoice as I watch it, and I can't help but think about how Mary and Joseph must have cheered as their baby boy first rolled over.
