Ten things of thankful

I am a little late making this week's list but it's never too late to be thankful for the good things in my life. September has started, this is usually a great month for me because it's both, my husband's and my birthday and it's also our wedding anniversary but this year I just want September to be over. I want those 4 weeks that Sophia is wearing the cast to fly by. That's why TTOT is going to be particularly helpful the next 4 weeks.
So here it is:

Ten Things of Thankful

1. My husband: even though sometimes I want to shake him and scream "are you kidding me?!!!", he always finds the way to make it to my list every week.

2. A wonderful summer: This was the first summer I spent with Sophia, just the two of us every single day. I was a bit nervous because she loves school so much, I though she was going to be bored. But it was awesome! we established our own routine and we  really bonded. I am going to miss her so much when next week.

3. My hair: I don't treat it well, I flat iron it and I curl it almost everyday and still it looks healthy. I am so thankful for that!

4. The people at the hospital where Sophia is having the surgery: We had the pretesting appointment on Tuesday and everybody was really nice and they made me feel that Sophia is going to be in good hands, they know Sophia's history and they booked a room for her to stay at least overnight.

5. Hand me downs: My husband's coworker has been so nice to us, she has giving us pretty clothes that don't fit her daughter any more several times. I don't have to buy any fall or winter clothes for Sophia this year!!!

6. My brother's new job: I posted about my brother finding a job after several months being unemployed, but that'snot all: he loves it! It's close to his house and his boss and coworkers are really nice, Very thankful for that.

7. Sophia's teacher: We had the orientation on Wednesday with the head teacher, the nurse, the new 1 on 1 and one of the other assistants. Once more I realize how lucky we are to have these people in our lives, they showed me how much they care for Sophia. They are going to put together a bag with the things that Sophia likes to play with at school so she doesn't get to bored when she is in the body cast and can't move. They are so thoughtful. 

8. Sophia's silliness: I love seeing her playing with her toys, she has such a great time. The other day she put this basket on her head and starting laughing out loud, it was really funny to see:

9: My international calling plan: I know I already mentioned this in the past but I'm so glad I have it, being able to talk to my mom every day in the morning is like my coffee, if I don't have it it's like a part of me is missing, I HAVE to have it!

10: My tiny but awesome family! I love you guys so much:

  1. September is a great month for a birthday (mine is the 5th)!

    I think the surgery and recovery is going to be harder on you than on Sophia. She's going to need a lot of entertaining while she's in the cast and can't do the things she's used to doing for herself.

    Love the picture of her with her daddy and with the basket over her head - silly girl!

    We all want to shake our husbands and scream sometimes :)

  2. Lol! so it's not only me?
    I agree, it's going to be harder on me, specially the first day. The first day is the worst, seeing her all swollen and sleepy from the pain medicine, but time flies and pretty soon she is going to be crawling all over the house again.
    My birthday is the 12th and our anniversary is the 9th, the day of the surgery!!

  3. Bless her heart - she looks so sweet in the sleepy photo. I hope the surgery goes really well. I'm sure after a short while, the discomfort will wear off and you'll have the hard job of keeping her occupied. I hope September passes quickly for you.

    BUT awesome news about the school - it sounds as though they've really taken on board what Sophia's needs will be, and are preparing really thoroughly to meet them. Sounds like a brilliant school.

    Thank you for your list - I hope the next few weeks are helpful reminders of gratitude for you, rather than too-difficult. Take care.

  4. Best wishes for a quick recovery from the surgery!

    I love the basket-on-the-head photo. I have a photo of two of my kids wearing canning jar lifters (like tongs) on their heads, and it reminds me of your photo. So happy and goofy!

  6. Awww. that last picture is just heart-melting! You do indeed have many blessings to count. We'll all be praying that little Sophie's surgery goes well and she heals quickly. It is wonderful that you can talk to your Mom every day, I'm sure that means as much to her as it does to you! :-)

  7. International calling plans are definitely a blessing. We've taken advantage of it before ;-) You have such a great list, and many things to be thankful for, especially all the people in your lives who are helping you take care of Sophia and enhaning all of your lives.

    Praising hubbies definitely NEVER gets old! Glad you have such a great guy as your partner!

    And congrats to your brother on his new job!!

    Have a wonderful week, Natalia!

  8. Praying that Sophia's surgery goes extremely well. That's SO HARD. I love the photo of her sleeping on your husband's chest. Is there anything better than that, ever?? I love that you can speak with your mom every day, too. Aw. Awesome.
