This is something we hear often:
Jonah: Here you go, Noah!
Noah: Thank you, Noah!
The twins are super verbal. They chitter chatter back and forth all day long, and talk with us about anything and everything. Interestingly, Noah has always been the very clear speaker. Everything he says is clear enough, for even those who are not around them a lot, to totally understand. But the one thing he won't say, is Jonah. His brothers name. In fact, when looking at a picture of the two of them, Noah once said:
"It's the Noah's!"
"No," I say "It's Noah and Jonah... say 'JO-NAH'"
Noah, with a giant smile, "NOAH!"
Recently, however, he has started to have a little more fun, and experiment with his brothers name... Yesterday I heard:
"Jonut" and "JaNoah" (I think that second one may catch on sometime)
But even that didn't have a long stay. Shortly after the name game, Jonah, once again, became Noah.
So, sweet Jonah... I am sorry. I want you to know that although your brother does not see you apart from himself, I know you are your own man. And one of these days... he will too.
Twins. They are so much fun.

So this is how it went down...
Nurse, comes in to check my vitals for the ten thousandth time:
So, your husband really is a pastor?
Nurse: Wow... cause, you like have your belly button pierced, and some tattoos and stuff.
Christine *snickers*: Yep.
Nurse: So, your husband. Really. He's a pastor?
Christine, thoroughly enjoying the moment: He sure is.
This conversation continued with me sharing the love of Jesus with her, and thankful that my "art"challenged her view of Christianity, and opened the door for me to have a meaningful conversation with her about the Lord, and His great work in my life.
FYI: I do know her name, but wanted her to remain anonymous.
