I have always loved hands and feet! You may have wondered why I named my blog Li’l Footprints. Here’s why.
When I was small I noticed that everyone’s hands and feet are unique. Some people say that the eyes are the window to the soul. Well, I believe that hands and feet are 🙂
Think about how much important work our hands and feet do all day. Much of this work is what makes us who we are. I think you can tell a lot about someone from looking at their hands and feet.
On a more personal note, and perhaps what solidified my obsession with feet in particular was my little ones’ kicks when I was pregnant. I know, it’s not always their feet “kicking” you in the ribs and the badder, but I often imagined them to be. And what a special and life altering feeling those kicks are!
Would you believe that when we had our 20 week ultrasound for our oldest, the first thing we saw was his foot? It’s true! Right from the bottom, like a little footprint on my uterus.
I love my children’s little feet and toes. I like to imagine all of the places those feet will take them (and all the things their hands will do), leaving all those li’l footprints along the way 🙂
