John Paul is really into Mary lately.
Like, the BVM. Blessed Virgin Mary.
We got a CD in the mail from some nuns and it's his current favorite thing to listen to. He is CONSTANTLY requesting the Salve Regina or Immaculate Mary or Hail Holy Queen. He can "sing" them himself (and spent the entire time at the Lego exhibit at the Building Museum singing, "Ave, ave, ave ma-DEE-ah...").
The other day I turned on his monitor when he should have been napping and heard him praying a Hail Mary. Then he sang the Salve Regina (and immediately started singing Tingalayo, another of his favorites). Then he prayed the Hail Mary in French (well, he read it from one of his books). I went to get him after his nap and he had "Je Vous Salue Marie" (Hail Mary in French), "Prayers to Mary" and "Moo, Baa, La-la-la" on his bed.
He was ridiculously excited at Mass today - we sang "Immaculate Mary" and "Salve Regina" and his eyes lit up as he marched in place singing very quietly to himself.
Seriously, if this kid doesn't end up getting ordained, his wife is gonna have some BIG shoes to fill!
