Thankful Thursday: The Simple Things In Life

Having a child makes you so very thankful for all of the simple things in life. This week I am thankful for:
  • the dappled sunshine that filters through the tree leaves and dances on Claire's face
  • a fresh and delicious Spanish/Italian inspired breakfast shared with my hubz while Claire naps soundly in her playpen

  • the sound of my 13 year old cats purr as she curls up near Claire for a nap, protecting her in her sleep
  • discovering that the premie onsie Claire once wore no longer fits her, yay to chubby cheeks

  • quite time spent breastfeeding Claire, stroking her head, and gazing into her eyes as Poppa reads her a story
  • family dinners with Claire, the hubz and his parents as we cheer on the 'Nucks and eat BBQ summertime burgers

  • those precious moments when I can steal away for a long, hot, lingering shower knowing Claire is being cared for 
  • the fact that tomorrow my baby girl will be 1 month old! I can't believe it!

Tell me kittens, what are YOU thankful for?
