Thankful Thursday

Joseph is having a blast at the pediatrician
Happy Thursday readers!

As always, I have so much to be thankful for this week, including:

~Having a lot of family time while my husband has been off of work for a month. (He always has off between Christmas and the third week of January.)

~That today my husband went back to work. While the family time is so nice, and he's been very helpful, I crave our normal routine. We've been basically having weekends every day for three weeks straight, planning fun things and spending so much time together. It's nice to get back to real life. (And I need to catch up on cleaning and organizing!)

~The health of my children. Knock on wood, they haven't had any bad illnesses or colds this winter, just the occasional sniffle. I also took Joseph to the Dr for his 15 month check-up on Monday and was happy to hear he's growing and developing just the way he should.

~Stephanie's adjustment to school. From September to December she cried a lot when I brought her to nursery school. (Sometimes for the majority of the 2.5 hours she was there.) She's finally gotten over that, and for the past two weeks has only cried for a few minutes when I drop her off.

~The love and support of my awesome girlfriends. Knowing I have people to vent and complain to, as well as share my happy times with is so amazing. I'm very appreciative to be surrounded by so many strong women who are always there for me when I need them. (This includes online friends and in real life friends...I feel blessed to have a network of both, some that coincide with each other.)

I hope you all are having a wonderful week. As always, thank you to Joanna  from Baby Gators Den for hosting the link-up, and please join us if you have a Thankful Thursday post of your own!


  1. This is an awesome exercise - to slow down and recognize what we have in our lives! Love it!

  2. I love these posts - Happy Thursday ;-)

  3. I so know what you mean- it is great to be back to normal. Very cute post! Glad school is going better for Stephanie!

  4. I'm sure it's nice to get back to your routine, but how awesome to have all that time to spend as a family every year! Your love for your family always shines through in your posts. I love it. :)

  5. I'm jealous you had your hubby for so long! I love vacation, but it does make you thankful for the routine you're used to having!
    I hope you stay cold-free! We are still "free" over here, and hoping to stay that way!

  6. That was a long break but I thrive on routine so I'm excited to get back to "normal" again too. :)

  7. I find it always settling when I get back into my routine.

  8. Ack! Safari ate my last comment, but I said I'm glad Stephanie is liking school better. I hope Jackson enjoys it when he starts-- glad everyone is healthy too! Thanks for linking up! XOXO

  9. It's always good to have friends you can just vent to. Glad everyone is healthy.
