angels we have heard on high

Dear Henry,
I definitely should not be taking time to blog today with all the birthday preparations I have left to do. You are turning 2 next week! But I have to get this stuff on record because it is absolutely the sweetest thing. For the past couple months you have been completely enthralled with angels. We don't know exactly how it started, but we think it may have begun at Grandma's house when she let you carry around one of her small angel figurines. Soon you started asking me if you could hold my Willow Tree angels and you were very sure to be so careful with them. You also started standing in a certain corner of our dining room and saying, "Look, Mommy! I bein' a angel." We still aren't sure why you do that, but it's adorable nonetheless. A week before Thanksgiving, Grandma Gerine gave you a whole package full of angel magnets and you love them. We are constantly finding them all over the house because you love to play with them so much. I also started singing "Angels We Have Heard on High" to you, and at first you would ask me to "sing angels" over and over again. Now you know all the words and I often hear you singing it in your crib when you wake up from your nap. I'm pretty sure you even dream about angels! Last week you had one night where you were awake a lot, so we spent several hours in the rocking chair. At one point I was sure you were sound asleep and suddenly, with your eyes closed, you burst into the first verse of the song. You sang it twice through and then were quiet again for about 5 minutes. I was sure you were asleep again when I heard you say, "I love you, angels! See you in the morning!" Too funny!! Last night we took you on a drive through the city park because they have a Christmas lights display there. Of course your favorite part was the lighted angels. This morning when I was changing your diaper you said, "The angels are friends, Mommy." We can't help but wonder how long this love of angels will last. Hopefully long enough for you to get to be an angel in the church Christmas program next year. Can you imagine?? Your very own angel costume?!? Here's a picture of you admiring your collection...
