Thankful Thursdays

This Thursday I am thankful for:

Tylenol PM.  Exhaustion has been pretty prevalent around here these days, but those magic little pills helped a bit last night.  I still woke up three or four times, but was able to fall back asleep without much effort.

Raisin Bran.  I was never allowed to to have sugar cereal as a kid, in fact my Mom passed Raisin Bran off as sugar cereal at home.  For some reason a big bowl of Raisin Bran in the mornings makes me incredibly happy.

My Wednesday night photography workshop.  After each class I feel as though I have that much more of an understanding on how to manipulate my camera.  I also feel like my camera may be slightly smarter than me.

The smell of a clean toddler.  It is amazing how the sweet smell of baby morphs into the stinky, sour smell of toddler.  Addie used to take a bath at least every other night but in all honesty her parents have become a bit of slackers as of late.  This morning I threw her in the shower and she left for school smelling of strawberries and soap - delicious.

Starting each morning with a perfect cup of decaf coffee.  Even on the most uncomfortable or chaotic of days a few minutes alone with my big cup of coffee makes it all a bit better.

Montauk Daisies, Black Eyed Susans,  and Echinacea.  All three perennials have been freshly planted in backyard, taking the place of three shrubs that I despised and hacked down.  I do not recommend hacking down and pulling up rooted shrubs when 30 weeks pregnant - not smart.

That very handsome husband of mine who painted the baby's room all on his own last night the most perfect shade of green, who is meeting me for an early lunch today just so we have a few minutes alone, and who is on Daddy duty tonight while I go see a play.  Lucky me.

This big, old belly of mine.  While at times I am rather uncomfortable and often am lacking sleep, there is nothing more wonderful feeling than the flips and dips of the littlest lady.  She just pushes and nudges her way around until she finds a comfy spot, and swear she jumps for joy when anything chocolate is eaten.  Now, if she would just let her Dad feel her acrobatics....

Wow Andy is building up some serious marriage capital this week!

Those kicks and flips are the best....and so are clean kiddos!

Ahhhh...Tylenol PM, a photography workshop, an awesome husband, and a new little girl who already appreciates the wonders of chocolate. Thankfulness, indeed!
