“When God wants a great work done in the world or a great wrong righted, he goes about it in a very unusual way. He doesn’t stir up his earthquakes or send forth his thunderbolts. Instead, he has a helpless baby born, perhaps in a simple home and of some obscure mother. And then God puts the idea into the mother’s heart, and she puts it into the baby’s mind. And then God waits. The greatest forces in the world are not the earthquakes and the thunderbolts. The greatest forces in the world are babies.” ~ET Sullivan

Oh, gotta love story time. Question: does Samuel take *bites* out of his books? I've discovered I can no longer give Paul a book like that or he'll take a bite out of it. Literally. A huge chunk gone, choking him in his throat.

Samuel tries to take bites out of books, but since we lost several to the drool monster when Leah was that age, we are a little wise and keep them away from the baby. We actually had to replace a few books that got gnawed to death by Leah.
