This is day seven in my adventure in babysitting with Kate. She truly is a good baby. The picture below is a rarity in my experience. She does not cry that much. She seems to be happy with my care. I wonder if she knows she is loved. One thing I want her to believe is that she is loved. It is what God the Father said to Jesus at his baptism. These words came from above, "You are my beloved in whom I am well pleased." Kate, you are beloved, believe it. We all need to hear those words and believe them.
