Being Thankful . . .

So very thankful that Will has taken to being a big brother so well. Although he's not that "into" being around Eli he definitely helps me out when I am in a pinch. I know when Eli is able to play with Will, that they will have a blast together! The other day Will had his play at school for Thanksgiving and we all came to see him and when 2 little girls almost ran into me. Will jumped infront me and said, "Watch out! Don't run into my mom and Eil!" Totally melted my heart!

Thankful for my sweet Lew, he works so hard for us everyday and will often stay up for 5-10 minutes during the night feedings with me, just to talk. Half the time I don't remember what we were talking about. He also goes and gets the bottle for me while I change Eli. Love you babe...more than air!



So thankful to have been blessed this year with another little boy. I can't imagine my life any different, even on the days that are hard. You can see the nervousness in my eyes in this picture but now that we are a month in, I have definitely become more confident in my mom of 2 skills.



So thankful that on February 14 of this year we found out we were finally pregnant after almost a year of trying. My little Eli gives us all so much joy. He generally is a wonderful baby except when he's had a little too much action for one day. He is a great sleeper (knock on wood) and usually wakes between 1-2am and between 4-6am for feedings. I remember with Will it being so hard but I guess having mad mom skills now, I have figured out the mom tricks.




This year I feel so very thankful to have been blessed with my family. I feel thankful to be surrounded by my boys. I couldn't ask for anything else.

Beautiful post.
I read your entry over at Shell's. I was where you are last year, and so exhausted at times, I don't know how I made it through the days.
