    Christ truly became man.

    A Baby, a Divine Child, who grows in wisdom.

    Christ, who is Wisdom, grows in wisdom.

    I remain in awe that God became Man so that man could become god.

    The Christ child reclining. If you do a search on "Anapeson" you can find a lot more like it.

    I'm sure our yiayiades were all venerating icons for their theological truths ;)

    I see nothing wrong with it, either. The First footsteps of the Christ child were the beginning of Christ's travels to deliver the Good News to mankind. This is what I get out of it, in addition to being a tender moment with his mother, the Theotokos.
