Playing with God

Jacob LOVES Caleb. For someone that is always on the go, he LOVES to sit and hold him. He'll run his little head, give him kisses - he just loves him. This morning after I was done feeding Caleb, Jacob sat next to me on the couch and wanted to hold him, so I put Caleb in his lap. He was loving on him, and then we had this conversation:

Me: "Aren't you glad that God gave us Caleb?"

Jacob: "Yes, but why did it take God so long to make him?"

Me: "Well, it takes a long time to make a whole baby - all their little body parts, their hands, their feet."

Jacob: "Yeah, it wasn't hard for God, it just took a long time." pause... "He (Caleb) was ready to be born, he just wanted to stay and play with God for a few more days".

How cute is that? So I guess that's the reason all of my babies have been born late. They wanted to stay and play with God for a few more days! :)
