I am thankful for...

Now that the (first) holiday rush is over (and I've fulfilled my stomach's pie quota), I can sit, relax and think about what I am thankful for. I'm thankful for a lot of things, but of course, I've managed to boil my list down to the most obvious...

I'm thankful for this boy:

I'm constantly amazed at how proud I can be of my son. I can hardly look at him without being thoroughly tickled that he's mine.
We spent some time outside after it snowed. There wasn't a ton of snow, but I took the opportunity to dress him up in his new snowsuit, coat and boots and managed to add the words: boots, cold and snow to his vocabulary.
He didn't seem completely thrilled by the experience....

In the last month Buddy has become enamored of the alphabet and more specifically the letter "o". My mom came by to visit the other day and while we were chatting he not only managed to gain access to my laptop, but he also managed to open a Google search. What did he search for? The letter "o" of course.

I'm thankful for this handsome guy:

D takes care of us, he comforts us and he brings so much laughter into our home. I love him every day.

Finally, I'm thankful for this baby:

So, this isn't the best photo of me, but will you look at that belly! I'm so grateful for a healthy and relatively easy pregnancy. Here's hoping that the next 17ish weeks will continue to go smoothly.


  1. Hey, I like that picture of you. And I love those videos of Robbie. He's learning so much - I can hardly believe he's talking! Shows how out of the loop I am, eh?

  2. I love this blog entry! That video is so cute!

  3. Just one question about the top picture. Is that Robbie in a cardboard box with a water dish? Is this some kind of human crate training? I'm not up on my modern child-rearing methods.
