Giving Thanks

Some self-righteous people may say "Why is it that we have this holiday to remind us of all that we have?? Shouldn't everyday be Thanksgiving?" Well, yes. Obviously. But we're celebrating a moment in US history, not the act of gratitude. However, I will take this opportunity to talk about my many blessings and completely ignore the Pilgrims and the Indians. Afterall, they're not my ancestors!

This past year has been .... a roller coaster of events. Though the dips were horrible and scary, the climb has been absolutely fantastic! We have our new home, one that I already love with all my heart. It still looks like we're unpacking (which we are), but perhaps, it doesn't bother me as much because... well, how bad can it be to unpack in your very own home?!?! Not bad at all. So we're just milking the experience and taking our sweet ass time.

We're most grateful for Mr. Wonderful, here.

My son. The most beautiful creature I've ever seen. P and I spend most of our time wondering how we came to deserve such a wonderful little boy. The truth is, we don't. We SOOOO don't. But here he is anyway and we thank God everyday for this amazing blessing of a child.

Oh and we finally got pictures of our little rock star on his birthday!! Enjoy!!

Poor Baby

My poor little W is sick. There were a couple of false alarms in the past (hey, I'm new at this, okay?) but this time, he's actually sick. How do I know? Because I pulled out about a pound of snot from his nose this morning :(

This is the sunniest room in the house, and even then it is still pretty chilly in there.



It's so cute when he sneezes because he knows we're going to say "Bless You!" So now, whenever he sneezes, he immediately looks at us..and waits for us to say it before going about his business again.

It's actually good that he caught a cold. He can build up that immunity finally. It's pretty crazy that he's been virus free up until now. I guess when you eat well and sleep well, you stay well.

The room eventually got warmer with the sun shining through. Look at my little man drinking his milk. So cute!

If only I could teach him to place the cup back down nicely instead of tossing it aside like a piece of trash.

He's looking at himself in the mirror, thinking, "damn, even sick, I look good!" Sick but still in good spirits. What a trooper!

If you have time, watch this video of him dancing...
