Andy was the one that woke up when the baby started crying. I was so tired and out of it when he woke up at 3:00am. I was trying to convince Andy that he didn’t need to worry because it wasn’t our kid who was crying. I was convinced I was right too.

Can you tell that Deacon is enjoying watching himself on the screen?
Here’s the text incase you’re not super skilled in interpreting 3 year old talk:

I am the Lord, your God and Sovereign, who out of bondage set you free,Who saved you from the land of Egypt. Then serve no other gods but me.
