11/23-30/12


Well, I did pretty well listing my thankfulness.  Until, that is, the munchkin's bronciolitis got even worse.  Thankfully with the use of a nebulizer, we were able to keep it from progressing any further and he is FINALLY back to his happy, smiley self.

So, a recap of last week's thankful count . . . all in one.  :)

11-23-12

Today I'm thankful for pediatricians with holiday hours.

11-30-12

And today, I'm thankful for helpers;


bandaids, even when they're unnecessary;
the tooth fairy . . .
 . . . who still isn't allowed in his room;
 that my happy baby is back, and


for pictures that make me stop in my tracks and wonder how a picture of a butt crack ended up on my phone before realizing it is knuckles.  Not a butt crack.
Shew.  Cause that would have been weird.


Hmmmm.  Wonder who might have done that . . .

Today I'm thankful that (almost a year ago!!!) we made the switch to cloth diapers. When I think about the money we've already saved (pretty sure if we haven't already broken even we're getting close...and Es only 6 months old!), the diaper rashes we haven't had, and how cute those fluffy little butts are, I know the extra work is worth it. Who would've ever thought this would be one of my favorite sights?!



 Almost makes me want to have more . . . said as I collapse in a fit of uncontrollable, hysterical laughter. Because, we'll, that's just hysterical.

. . . and the family I marri . . . um, yeah.  That's pretty much all.  :)


but mostly i'm thankful for these guys.

11-16-12

Today I'm thankful for the knowledge and ability to sew. It's become my favorite form of "my" time, my creative outlet, and the fact that I can make a little money in the side is an added bonus.




11-15-12


Today I'm thankful for a (persistent) patriotic 4 year old who insisted on carrying around the flag I just brought in from outside "so we can say the pledge"; for my freedom to say said pledge 6 times while trying to get dinner started; and for the "stick" off of a set of mini blinds which was deemed appropriate (by the opinionated, persistent, patriotic 4 year old) to which the flag was attached. :)

Today I'm thankful for a forgiving, loving, God who has blessed me beyond measure.


 {even though a certain (exhausted) 4 year old refused to say his prayers tonight because he was mad at God because "He won't make me be able to fly".}

Six Months



Easton!!  You're

SIX MONTHS OLD!!!


What you're up to these days:

 * We went to the doctor today and you're 18.9 pounds {75%} and 27" {75%} of perfection!  i looked back - all 3 of you were within a 1/2 inch of each other at 6 months, and you are exactly the same weight as garrett was. . . which happens to be almost 1 1/2 pounds more than hudson.  :)


* You have your 2 bottom teeth and the top ones aren't far behind.


* You sit like a champ!  Even Dr. Kapor commented on how solid you were . . . "more like a 9 month old".  slow down!!

* You got to meet 2 more of your cousins last weekend - John  & Doug were in town from Ohio for a Lacrosse tournament so we went to watch.

all 4 of GG's great-grandsons

* You roll over  both ways, as well as spin in circles.  You also post up on your arms and scoot backwards.  seriously  slow down!


 
* You are so laid back.  And you're happiest when the boys are playing and making noise.

* We started giving you some cereal last week.  You ate it but much prefer the popsicles and ice cream your brothers {and Daddy} give you.


* You sleep pretty well . . . we're usually up once during the night. I'm pretty sure you'd be sleeping all night if you weren't in our room . . . and if you hadn't already figured out I'm a sucker for your sweet, middle of the night cuddles.


Easton, you're such a blessing to us all.  I absolutely cannot imagine my life without your sweet smiles and feel so blessed that I was lucky enough to be chosen for you.  I hope you always love your brothers like you do right now and that you never lose your killer smile.  I can't wait to see what your 7th month holds . . . I just hope it doesn't go by too quickly.  I love you, Munchkin!




Here are all 3 boys at about 6 months:

Yup.  Preeeeetty sure they're all from the same stock.




 

Thankful.


Lots of people on facebook are doing a daily "thankful" list for the month of November.  I'm a few days late, but here goes nothin' . . .



 Today, I am thankful for my "helper".


sometimes, i just don't ask.

Happy 1/2 birthday, Baby!!
