Ten things of thankful

I know, I skipped last week but please know that when that happens it's never for lack of good things in my life but because I really think there is not enough hours in the day. This week I am a little less tired than last week so here is my list:


Ten Things of Thankful

1. Sophia's recovery from surgery: It hasn't been a month after taking the cast off and each day she is better than the day before. She is still a little stiff but she is back to crawling all over the house and kneeling and standing with support. On Monday we are trying the walker and I am sure that she is going to be back where she was before the surgery in no time.

2. Quality time with the in-laws: It had been a while since the last time we all got together and we finally did last weekend and had a really great time. We carved pumpkins, toasted the seeds and ate pizza, good times! The pumpkins came out great:
3. I decided to dress Sophia up and take her to Eric's company Halloween party. I figured I would feel different there with a lot of kids of different ages than at my friend's party (you can read about this HERE) and I was right, we had a good time and Sophia loved visiting daddy at work:
4. My attempt to transition Sophia from baby to toddler was a success! She is loving her new big girl bed. (You can read all about it HERE)

5. The Red Sox won the World Series! at home!! 

6. The beautiful weather on Saturday: It's November and it was 66 degrees! I didn't think I could take Sophia to the park and go on the swing until next year but today was definitely a park kind of day.

7. Sophia's teacher and PT: they made it to the list again, they both are always coming up with new ways to help Sophia walk, crawl, sit, and stand better. They show me every single day how much they care for my daughter.

8. I still miss my husband: He was away for the weekend and even though I had a great time with Sophia I couldn't wait for my hubby to get home.

9. I made a pretty good lasagna this week, I am losing the fear to cook.

10. I am thankful for my sweet girl because... well, see for yourself:

  2. Oh, I love the video of Sophia! What a happy girl, and she can clap! I also loved hearing YOUR voice in the background - very lovely!

    Good to hear Sophia is continuing to heal and will soon be on her walker. She's such a strong little girl!

    Sophia makes an adorable Super Girl! And your jack-o-lanterns are AMAZING!

    And I'm sure you're a much better cook than you think you are.

  3. What a delightful girl Sophia is! It sounds like she is recovering nicely from her surgery, and having an afternoon in the park must have been lots of fun.

  4. Ahhhhhh loke at Sophia joining in with the song! She's so gorgeous. Love her beaming smile.

    And SO CUTE in that outfit! Lovely that she got a chance to go to her Daddy's work and join in with Halloween there.

    I'm so pleased that you're losing the fear of cooking, and are enjoying the results. Keep up the good work, because cooking is awesome.

    Those pumpkins are carved beautifully, by the way. You live in a very creative household :D
