On this balmy 60 degree day in December, I am thankful for:
Baby booties, Johnson & Johnson baby wash, large burp clothes and little hands.
Three nights in a row where I have logged three straight hours of sleep.
Good recipes that make great dinners - tea braised pork, chicken pot pie, ham and swiss stromboli - we've been eating well in the Neyer household.
The totally undainty noises of the newest Neyer - no coos and ahhhs around here, friends. Nope this little lady is all chirps, grunts and gas.
Fridays - they mean the start of the weekend and, for the last few weeks of the month, they also mean half days of work for my fabulous husband.
A clean house decorated for the holidays - red glass, ornaments and twinkle lights just make everything so much more lovely.
My wonderful neighbors and their endless support - from supplying us with baby coupons and hours of Addiesitting, to taking us out on errands and stopping by just to hold a baby - we are so lucky to have landed in this neighborhood.
Guiness and Rivertown Winter Ale - my love of wine is on the back burner and I am having a pretty hot fling with dark beers.
Photo Christmas cards - I love getting a peek at my friends' lives. Today I got a card from a Chicago friend who I haven't seen since moved to Ohio - it made me smile be remembered on her list and get to see that her toddlers are now "kids".
The heart of my four year old - sure at times she can be an absolute beast, but underneath it all she's a true beauty.
Being in the final days of Christmas madness - soon all that will be left to do is the sitting and enjoying.
Capturing just hint of a smile.
