He Remembers....

Yesterday I was 'nuggling Ben on the couch when I noticed that he was craning his head around to look at something in the corner of the Living Room. At first I thought he was trying to watch TV so I turned it off yet he still seemed to stare at the corner. So I took him over there, thinking he wanted to look at the light from the lamp. But as we got closer to the corner, I noticed that it wasn't the lamp he was looking at, at all. We have a small 5x7 frame of Jesus by the lamp and Ben was mesmerized by it. He quietly stared at the picture for almost 2 whole minutes (those who have kids know how rare that attention span is, especially for a 4 month old). I kept asking him if he knew who he was looking at and he would just look at me then return his attention to the picture. After the 2 minutes, he tried to reach out and grab the picture. It melted my heart that he would find the small picture of Jesus and just recognize it. It isn't really in a conspicuous spot that you would think a baby would look at, yet he saw and recognized his big brother.

How special babies are!! What a witness to me, of the premortal life and how precious and wonderful gifts that we are given!! Isn't it so amazing how thin the veil still is for infants?!?!? I am so grateful for the unique soul that was given to us!! Ben must be a very valiant servant of the Lord to be able to recognize our Savior!

What a sweet moment! Thanks for sharing :-) I'm just in awe of his immediate recognition of Christ. That is amazing, but really shouldn't surprise me.

That is so cool. It really is amazing how close they are to him still. They just left him! They are so special.

Summer did this too! She would lay on our couch and just stare at our picture of the Savior. I really think babies DO remember Him... and that it's up to us to help them remember Him when they forget.
