*video* If I knew then...

...What I know now:

I would not have spaced our first two children so close in age.

I realize 22 months isn't that close, but it is for me. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't trade it now...but I do feel like a little more time would have been good for everyone.

I worried a bit that the bigger space between Griffin & Hollyn (3 years, 3 months) and the fact that they were different genders would create too much distance. But so far, I was SO wrong. Now I'm wishing that they were all over 3 years apart!

Of course...I'm so glad that I didn't know then what I know now...because I wouldn't have this family! Does that make any sense?

The bond between the Griff and Hollyn is sweet and hilarious! No one can get Hollyn to laugh quite like Griffin! She lights up and squeals whenever she spots him. She also isn't afraid to put him in his place when he gets too rough...or annoying:) They sit and play together in the living room for such long periods of time that I sometimes feel a bit guilty about my lack of involvement!

The video is a couple minutes long and pretty uneventful, but you can get an insider's look at their sweet relationship...

This is just what I needed to hear Amy. Thank you! We're expecting in July when our oldest will be closer to seven than six and our middle will bee going on five. I'm looking forward to seeing how their relationships develop.

How many times can I laugh during one video? So fun to see how they 'play' and how life with brother(s) goes for Hollyn--they do love her so.

Clara and I watched the whole thing (with many comments on her part - identifying "Giffin" & " Hollyn" as well as singing along to head & shoulders). Ha! What a sweet video capturing their relationship.

And your words about spacing are just what a needed to hear right now ;).
