When I was pregnant with ds there was only one thing we specifically prayed for. We prayed he would be loving.
When it was time for dd, our prayer was for her to be above all else be obedient.
God is gracious. He has given us two of the best kids ever! They are smart and creative and silly and forgiving. For the most part they behave pretty well. They love each other and they make us feel loved.
Lately, they’ve become each others best friend. They look after each other. They play together. They help each other out. They chat and share silly jokes. I love it.
On mornings I need to sleep in, they manage to survive together playing, snacking, watching tv, drawing, going on the computer, etc. They don’t really wake us up unless they want a kiss or it’s really important.
Its nice that they are old enough to care for themselves now, but I’m also a little sad. I miss them being younger. My amazing babies are gone. Now I have amazing big kids.
All glory belongs to God!
