I have been singing this song to Jude at bedtime some nights for a while now, but it's only been the last few nights that he has seemed to take notice.

I'll get to the part "when I fall down You pick me up. When I am dry You fill my cup." and even though he is nursing, I can hear him smile. (If you've ever been a nursing mother, you know what I mean by hear!) then I get to the end and he stops what he's doing: "gin, mommy?" And every time with out fail, on the second go around, when I sing the part "fill my cup" he stops and repeats, "fill cup."

I love the legacy songs like this will speak into his life over the years and especially that he's picking up on them so early.

Love it that you have a Jude! We have JudAH! What shocks me is some people, even pastors, have said "That's such an unusual name. Where did you find it?" Duh! LOL!

Kimberly (HALL-way) I wish I had a way to send this directly to you, but maybe you'll see it anyway.

We had a similar question from our Walmart cashier yesterday! She said "I love that name! You must be Beatles fans." And I said, "Well actually we got it from the Bible." (He is actually Judah also. Well, Samuel Judah, but we call him Jude.) And she was like, "Oh, where?" lol.
