4/29 - Jeremiah can tie knots. He tied the laces of my slippers together!

5/15 - Jeremiah asked me, "My children in my belly, Mom?"
5/22 - Jeremiah was trying to tell me about a time when only he, Faith, and Joy were in the house, and some "people not our friends" came to our house. As I probed to get more information about this, I started to realize it must have been a dream. This was confirmed when his reply to where the rest of us were was, "Dad, you, Nanel died." But it took quite a while to convince him it wasn't real.

5/26 - Jeremiah said, "We love sun. So fun, so sparkly."
