Thankful Thursday, Take 49

[You'll have to cut me some slack post-baby...it's awfuly hard to manage to get this up on time lately! But for simplicity's sake we'll keep calling it "Thankful Thursday."]

Thanking God this week for...
  • a great week with Elijah, enough so that I'm finally believing everyone who keeps saying "It gets better, I promise!"
  • five consecutive hours of sleep
  • the little wiggleworm on my lap who's smiling and cooing as I type
  • tiny baby feet
  • last weekend's women's retreat
  • encouragement and empathy from friends
  • my camera
  • Hello
  • advice from people who have been there, done that--on everything from photography to nursing to cloth diapering
  • a long walk on the greenway last night with our little family (and no crying from the stroller)
  • sore muscles from working out
  • my studly personal trainer (aka my husband :)
  • a chance to get out of the house yesterday afternoon and enjoy the company of friends
  • sunshine
  • meeting our insurance deductible (=100% coverage thru December!)
  • apple chips
  • our grill
  • orange bell peppers

Oh, I love the photos on flickr! Elijah is so handsome and looks a lot like Steve, I think. I'm glad that things are getting better. I hope they continue to do so!

Your getting great shots. I love Hello too. I am so glad your week is going better. Honestly each week will get better....until potty training but that is down the road. HA HA.

PS don't know how the sleeping thing is going but in case no one told you it always seems like as soon as they start sleeping well for a few nights all the sudden something changes and they start waking up. I remember thinking what is going on. Usually it is a growth spurt...need more food or teething (dr told me sometimes the worst teething part is way before you ever see a tooth...that moving down time lots of slobber and chewing on hands and this can take a few months). Just wanted to give you a heads up so you aren't wondering if you are the only one. And he may end up never having a problem but just so you know you are not alone. HUGS. Here is to a shower, 5 hours of sleep and a moment to breathe.
