1. I am thankful that I have joined the Thankful Thursday group. I used to participate in the Sunday Seven meme which is where you list seven things you are thankful for each Sunday. But, due to my problems with being a blogaholic I have resolved that I will not be blogging anymore on the weekends. I really like taking the time out each week to reflect and realize how very blessed I am. I am glad that I can reserve the weekends for family time and still be able to take one day a week to post about what I am thankful for.2. I am thankful that Hailey's 9 month doctors appointment went well. She is healthy, happy and right where she should be developmentally. For those who are curious- at her 9 month appointment (which actually took place at 9 months, 1 week) Hailey weighed 20 pounds and was 28 1/2 inches long. That is right in between the 50th & 75th percentile which her pediatrician says is wonderful.
3. I am thankful for my blogging friends. I love reading about what is going on in my blogging friends lives, knowing that they are reading what I'm writing about, and leaving each other comments or sending emails. It helps me to see other people who have the same issues that I have. Being able to offer and get some advice or support and being happy for each other during the good times is so wonderful.4. I am thankful that Rich gets up every day and goes to work to provide for us. He makes it possible for me to be a stay-at-home-mom, which has always been my dream.
5. I am thankful for the work that Rich did on my blog to give me my new look.6. I am thankful for the way that Rich is with Hailey. I love watching her face light up when she sees him and enjoy seeing how Rich plays with her. The other night we went out to eat and I was just sitting back watching Rich be silly with Hailey. Hailey looked up at him and grinned and giggled. I can't really put into words the feeling I had just watching them, except to say it made my heart feel full.
