Thankful Thursday

I have realized that I have missed at least last week. Last week was a little rough due to the whole family getting the flu.  Missing two days of work last week due to my family having the flu and then the daycare providers and her family getting the flu. Made for a short week.  But the things I am thankful for currently are...

1)  Employment where I have paid sick days so I don't have to worry
2)  The opportunity to help out friends
3)  JT feeling better and sleeping better after he had a visit to the Chiropractor
4)  For the Chiropractor who works on children and was so good to JT and me
5)  Opportunity to fill my bucket due to the Chiropractor giving a free first exam after seeing JT...SO thankful
6)  Both my parents who are here visiting and loving on their grandson
7)  Nyquil that helps my husband to sleep without coughing and in turn allows both me and JT to sleep also  (its the little things)

6 months old

Growing boy

Dad trying to get in the picture :)

Dad succeeding

We have made it to the half way point of a year.  It is very hard to believe.  So far he is rolling over both ways with ease.  He is getting his knees up underneath him and scooting on his forehead.  It will not be long before he is crawling and into everything.  He enjoys blowing bubbles and making gurgling noises.  We started eating food just this week.  He ate his whole bowl of rice cereal his second time and realized that opening his mouth for the spoon meant good food.  We have graduated to 6-9 mnth clothes b/c he is so long.  We have his well baby check next week and we will get his official measurements then.  He smiles with ease and giggles at the other kids at daycare.  It is official that everyone that meets him thinks he is adorable :)

Thankful Thursday

This week I am thankful for...

JT starting to sleep through the night again after a week of rough sleep due to sinus congestion and a cough

The peace of God that surrounds you when you trust in Him even when you don't have the answers and you have to coordinate with doctor's got a call from the doctor's office stating that they saw some irregularities from the MRI but I had to wait a couple of weeks before I could see the doctor for specifics

A new appreciation for Fall and enjoying the lower temps and colors in a new way than before...not mourning the end of summer as much or dreading the impending snow as much :)

Having healthy parents who raised me in a (for the most part) healthy environment and gave me many opportunities...if you ever need a reality check of how bad things could be go to a child protection meeting at department of health and human services...makes me so thankful for the people I have in my life
