I planned on this being a longer post but the little man is going though some brutal teething and I spent most of last night up with him. It's funny because I thought we sailed through the early teeth pretty painlessly, but these pre-molars are really doing a number on him.
That said, as I was rocking my little boy to sleep last night I reflected on this past year and all the big...and little things I am grateful for. Here's my list...
*The beautiful blonde hair boy with big blue eyes that greets me with a smile every morning. I could write millions of pages filled with the things he does that I am thankful for, but the joy that fills my heart in that moment that I see his little face pretty much sums it all up.
*My husband. Not only am I thankful for the wonderful father he has become, but I a thankful for the wonderful husband he continues to be. I am grateful that he washes bottles and lets me sleep in sometimes, and I am thankful that he does all of this without me ever having to ask.
*My family. We were not always so close, but this past year a lot of relationships have been mended and I am thankful for that.
*My Other Family-aka my in laws. I seriously got so lucky is this department because all my in laws are the best. I actually look forward to spending time with them! And this year, more than ever I am thankful for them and all the help they have given us with Jack. It brings me such joy to know that Jack is surrounded by so much love.
*I am thankful that we can afford for me to mostly stay home with Jack and that I have a part time job that is flexible in allowing me to do so!
*I am thankful for good health and a happy home.
*I am thankful for my many good friends in real life and through the intrawebs.
*I am thankful for little things, like Mint Truffle Hershey Kisses, my DVR, flavored coffee creamer, family nap time, McDonald's picnic's, and Eskimo kisses.
