       2018

BASIC TRUTH: God loves me.
SAY THIS:
Whose way is perfect?
God's way is perfect.
DO THIS:

 MORNING TIME


When you go into your baby's room this month, say, "Good morning, [child's name]! Mommy loves you and Daddy loves you and (repeat with names of family and friends) and God loves you SOOOOOO much!

 FEEDING TIME


While feeding your baby this month, say, "One, two, I love you. Three, four, God loves you more!" Repeat.

 CUDDLE TIME


Cuddle up wth your baby this month and pray, "Dear God, You are perfect. Your way is perfect. Please help me follow Your way so I can lead [child's name] to follow Your way. When Your way is hard or I am afraid or when I don't undertand, just help me remember Your way is perfect. I love You, God. In Jesus' name, amen."

 BATH TIME


While bathing your child, sing to the tune of "Here We Go 'Round the Mulberrry Bush." "This is the way we [wash our hair], [wash our hair], [wash our hair]. This is the way we [wash our hair]. God's way is perfect." Insert different bathtime actions each time you sing.

THE TRUTH ABOUT THE BABY PHASE
By Holly Crawshaw



Becoming a parent is one of those experiences in life where basically every cliché is true: It goes so fast. You’ll miss this. Just wait until they’re walking/talking/teenagers. They’ll grow out of it. It will get easier. At Parent Cue, we say something similar: It’s just a phase. So don’t miss it.

It’s true. The baby phase passes. Even on the days that seem like they’ll never end, time is moving; we can’t slow it down, and we can’t get it back. But, can I tell you a secret? I don’t love the baby phase. I’ve had three daughters and am beyond grateful for each one. I’ve lost a pregnancy, and I know what a blessing it is to hold a child and know they’re yours forever. There is no greater feeling on this side of heaven.

But I still don’t love the baby phase. (Insert shrugging emoji here.) And you know what? That’s okay. I can love my baby and be present with my children and still not be in love with the baby phase . . .
