January 2018 - Babies Parent Cue

  JANUARY

       2018

BASIC TRUTH:  Jesus wants to be my friend forever.
SAY THIS:
Who can do anything?
Jesus can do anything.
DO THIS:

 MORNING TIME


When you go into your baby's room this month say, "Good morning, [child's name]" as you pick him up and hold him close. Whisper in his ear, "Jesus is your friend and I am too! Let's have a great day together!"

 FEEDING TIME


(Sing to the tune of "Row, Row, Row Your Boat") "Who, who, who can do? Who can do anything? Jesus can. Jesus can. Jesus can do anything."

 CUDDLE TIME


Cuddle up with your baby this month and pray, "Dear God, thank You for [child's name]. He is so precious. Help me to trust that with You all things are possible. Help me to be the parent [child's name] needs. I love You, God. In Jesus' name, amen."

 BATH TIME


Begin at your baby's toes and walk your fingers up as you say, "With God all things are possible," ending by lightly tickling his neck.
