30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 3

I am thankful for my new baby girl.  It's hard to believe that in 3.5 months she'll be joining our family.

9 weeks

30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 2

My husband.  I give him a hard time, but I am so thankful he came into my life.  He is so generous and is the best dad ever.  When people complain about their husbands lazing around when they get home from work, I usually keep my mouth shut because A is most likely on the floor playing with Henry or throwing in a load of laundry (all while watching baseball, football, etc).  Would I love him just as much if he wasn't quite as productive...of course, but him being so involved in our everyday life makes him the best ever!

Back in high school.  Poor guy didn't know what he was getting himself into. :)

 College.  Basically full of football, beer (for him), and pizza!

We're engaged!  Cute pose, eh?

Now he's stuck with me (not sure where the heck my thumb is hiding).

How he used to vacuum and watch Henry simultaneously. 


This year was Henry's first "real" Halloween. He was only 3 weeks old his first Halloween and was pretty much clueless about what was happening during his second Halloween. He was a very cute little elephant though!

This year was a totally different story! We started out about a month ago by letting him pick out his costume. He decided he wanted to be a baseball player (A was watching a ton of baseball at the time). Ok so easy enough and he loved it the first couple of times he wore it to pre-Halloween events.

The night before Halloween Henry randomly decided he wanted to be a pumpkin. Luckily, we bought a pumpkin costume last year that he never wore. Here is his official trick or treating outfit. He makes an adorable pumpkin if you ask me and he only got called a girl twice :)

Henry had a ton of fun TOTing and even got the hang of saying TOT and thank you. He's definitely sad it's over, but he's enjoying a piece of candy or two each day.  Only 363 days until next year!  More than likely you'll see a cute little girl named Eleanor dressed in her big brother pumpkin outfit.

30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 1

Let's start with the obvious.  My little boy.  I honestly don't know how it's possible to love a person so much, but it is.  The love I have for him is totally different than the love I have for A or anyone else.  I seriously think my heart is going to burst from loving him so much...even when he throws a huge tantrum in the middle of Target like he did today :)
 My first glimpse of him. 

Right after making his way into the world.

Big one year old.

My big boy (who still loves his paci)

Welcome back to me!! :)

Well, well, well, I haven't updated this for about 18 months.  The last 18 months have been full of happiness, struggles with a (very) late diagnosis of PPA, and deciding we were ready for number two.

My big boy has gone from a chunky little baby to a toddler in the last year and a half.  Surprisingly, he has only gained about 9lbs from my last update at 7 months, but has grown a good 8-10 inches (we'll know for sure after his two year appointment next week).  Not to worry though, he still has some sweet baby cheeks.  Here is a picture of my big boy from his 2nd birthday party.

This little lady here is Miss Eleanor (maybe Ella, Ellie, Nora, IDK yet) Grace.  I am currently 22 weeks pregnant and am feeling good despite some sciatic nerve pain and continuing morning sickness.

I'm hoping to keep up with this from now on.  I've found it to be an invaluable resource while catching up on Henry's baby book and will probably need it again for Eleanor's. ;)
