"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be." - Psalm 139:13-16 (NIV)

"I have two hands!"
I've been noticing, that Madison is saying (more often than usual), "I have two hands, mommy." or she says things like, "I can do it, I have two hands." She doesn't seem to say it in a mean way and it doesn't seem like she means anything harmful behind it. It's almost as if to say.......look at me mommy, as if she's trying to get my attention or my approval. It makes me wonder if I'm paying too much attention to Mason and his abilities with his "small hand" (as he calls it), and I'm not paying enough attention to Madison. Lately, Madison has been a little more whiny, a little more clingy, a bit more of a mommy's girl, for lack of a better phrase. Her feelings get hurt easier, she's cries more and she's not as independent as she has been in the past. I must admit, the statement "I have two hands" kind of un-nerves daddy and me. Not because we thinks she has malace or a negative motive, but because.......actually, I don't know why it un-nerves me. I try to say things like, "yep, Madison you sure do have two hands!" But, somehow I find myself commenting about Mason again. The focus still goes back to him and his abilities. "Yep, Madison, you sure do. Mason has two hands also. He just has one small hand and one big hand, but he still can do all the things you can do." But.....this is probably not the response Madison is seeking. At some point, I guess she needs the focus to just be on her and her abilities. Maybe her innocent comments have nothing to do with Mason at all......I mean she is only three years old, right?
