And So It Begins...

We were in the car last night and Ava was drawing on her magnadoodle. She was drawing one of her usuals, her in my belly. Ever since I showed her my ultrasound pictures of her (as above), she has been somewhat fascinated by them. But, last night her fascination hit a new peak.
Ava: Momma, did you swallow me, is that how I got in there?
Me: Uuhhhm, no, God put you in there to grow into a new human being.
Ava: But, why?
Me: Because He wanted to bless momma and daddy with a special gift to love and raise up to be another of His children in the world.
Ava: Why does he need more children?
Me: That's how the world gets people in it. Aaaallll the people you see everywhere.

She just went on to something else after that. They say every generation is more advanced than the previous. I think that's a scary prospect now. I know our turning off the cable may not be enough soon.

Oh the question little one's ask! When I first looked at your post and saw the ultrasound picture I thought you were pregnant!

Oh! That is so funny, I thought of that with the picture, but didn't think about it with the title, in that way.:)

Yeah, it seems to begin so early sometimes, huh?! I like the answers you gave her though!
