Paul,

Yes. I like Turretin's and Van Mastricht's separation between regeneration and conversion (faith and repentance).

The child would have "seed faith."

Paul, no, they cannot actively believe, though the tools for believing are presumed to be there based on the promise.

They do not have the exercising ability to string together biblical propositions, though they do have the capacity to do it (i.e. regeneration). My illustration, that I like - the acorn holds all the properties of the oak tree though its not growing yet.
