31 Days: Holding Hands

A minor miracle happened today….

My kiddos held hands while walking to my nephew’s football game this afternoon.

This may not be a big deal to you, as your kids probably hold hands all the time, but mine only do it when they are snuggling on the couch and watching a movie. They most definitely DO NOT hold hands while moving. EVER.

Most people, when they see Jake and his activity level, usually comment, “Oh Evy must be super calm…you always get one of both!”. UH NO. It seems that God thinks I have super powers when it comes to mommying…as He gave me two very wild, very active, very rambunctious children. Evy is NOT wallflower and can definitely hold her own. In fact, she starts the majority of fights that happen in this household, if you can believe that. I keep wondering when she will realize that Jake is twice her size and stop picking on him?

When I was pregnant with Evy, I felt her move at 13 weeks. And when I say move, I mean MOVE. I felt major “flutterings” or whatever it is they call it. She continued to move nonstop my entire pregnancy. Early on, when I felt her move so much, I panicked. Surely God couldn’t be giving me another boy with MORE activity level than Jake. I mean, that just couldn’t be possible, right? {Only those who know Jake can probably answer this one, ha}

But no, it wasn’t. He gave me a girl…with more activity level. So awesome. ha. Thank God knows what He’s doing!! :)

So today I am thankful for my babies holding hands. Because for them to hold hands it means two things: 1. They weren’t fighting and 2. They were walking slow enough to hold hands. Two major miracles. ha. Sheesh, I love those babies. They are amazing and make my heart melt.

Do your kids fight? Do they hold hands?? 

Big hugs friends xoxo

OH Ps….Jake made two goals this morning during soccer. He was so excited. Course I’m sure the fact that Brandon gave him $5 for it didn’t help at all. :) Bribery at it’s worst, but hey…it made him work!! ha xoxo
