Thankful Thursday

Blowin' out his seven candles

Sportin' his daddy's jacket from when he was that size

Keepin' an eye on the crazy cat

I am thankful this week for my boys.  I am blessed to have healthy, happy boys that are fun to be around and bring smiles to others.

Thankful Friday

Since this week has been slighly hectic...I am a day today I am thankful for...

1) JT having insurace and the health care bill that has made it so babies cannot be denied insurance for pre-existing conditions...this should be prefised with JT has to get an MRI on Oct. 5 due to have a hemangioma (mass) on his back that could be potentially attached to his spine canal which could cause issues with lower body movement, so we have to see with the MRI if it is attached and if so he will need surgery to get it removed...

2)God's provision that resulted in a happy b-day party for Blake (he is 7 now, CRAZY)

3)Made it through a stressful week at work and a co-worker who helped me get caught up...go teamwork

Thankful Thursday

I missed a week so this will encompass the last two weeks...I am thankful for

1) a God that answers prayer
2) a husband that tries his very best to be a good husband and father and can admit his shortcomings and laugh about them
3) nice Fall weather that you can still wear skirts comfortably but you don't necesarrily need A/C
4) thankful for the services and the people in our community that work to keep children safe despite the up hill battle of funding and the human nature

Five Months

Getting big
Sporting the outfit that Grandpa got him
Hanging with dad

Our boy is five months old.  We had our well baby check up and he is 14 pounds and 27 inches long (98th percentile in heighth).  He is rolling over both ways and just a happy boy.  He has started giggling more and loves to face out and watch the world.  He has become facinated with our cat and will follow her with a watchful gaze trying to figure out that creature is.  We made it through our first cold together.  We both got pretty moucusy and he did not appreciate mom sucking his boogers out.  He got pretty good at avoidance techniques.  He continues to sleep through the night.  We are so thankful for our boy.  He is a precious gift to us.

Thankful Thursday

This Thursday snuck up on me.  The things that I am thankful for this week are...

  • that I am breast feeding and don't have to buy formula very often ($25 is rediculous)
  • that God worked it out that the money went just as far as it needed to...groceries, gas, formula :(, and laundry detergent...
  • for our Life Group at church and that we are getting started again after the summer...
