Thankful me

So many things to be thankful for this week! Let's get to it:

Ten Things of Thankful

1.  My in laws: mi mother and sister in law have been baby sitting for us so hubby and I can go out on dates. Last Saturday we went back to the casino with more time and a little more money,which we lost but I am not complaining. We played the roulette and it was like in the movies, it was a lot of fun.

2. Great deals: I score a great baby video monitor for about half the regular price thanks to craigslist. It's great to be able to see Sophia and make sure she is safe in her big girl bed, plus I saw her getting out of bed this morning and she did a really good job.

3.  The weather today, it's the middle of November and it was 61 today!!!  

4. Cheap, fun things to do as family. We went to Bass Pro Shops today and had a lot of fun, Sophia got a picture taking with Santa (for free I must add), looked at a lot of Christmas decorations, had a nice lunch in their restaurant and got to see a big fish tank which Sophia loved:

5. My husband: He is away again this weekend and I miss him so much! 

6. Sophia is eating a lot!! Let me explain: she has been always smaller for her age but a few years ago she was on Pediasure supplements and we had to add butter to her meals to boost a little bit her caloric intake. Some doctors have asked if she had ever feeding tube when they looked at her charts but I can't be thankful enough that that was never the case and that she is off the Pediasure and getting bigger and bigger every day.

7. Pintrest: While it is time consuming and I can easily get lost in the wonderful land of organization ideas... I have found a few very helpful cleaning ideas, gift ideas as well as very tasty recipes.

8. Cuddling with Sophia and her daddy in the mornings.

9. Lizzi form Considerer, nominated me for the Liebster award. Thank you Lizzi and I promise I'll accept it real soon and follow the rules, at least most of them.

10. Last but definitely not least I am so thankful for Sophia's progress in every area, but specially walking, she is just doing so well, see for yourself: (I apologize for the 3 or 4 seconds the screen goes black but I had to put the phone down for safety reasons)


  1. I have to agree with dates, deals, and free family fun! Congrats to Sophia for doing so well with walking and growing!

  3. Wonderful list! Between date nights and free fun and good weather, so many blessings are coming your way. Thank you for posting the video. It really helps in my understanding about where Sophia is and how she is progressing. She is doing great! (And I like to hear your voice.) :)

  4. I love Pinterest. And free babysitting for date nights?? A definite WIN!

  5. Congrats to on the Leibster!

    watched your vid… very determined child there! lol I can see why you're so proud of her…
    (this technology! things like the video you have…not even dreamed of only a short time ago).

    warm(er) weather is good weather!

  6. Look at her GO! What a star - and your encouragement and support of her is so wonderful :) I love the photos of her with Santa and you and the fish. She's such a happy soul :D

    You're totally welcome for the award, and when you get to it, feel free to break as many rules as you like :D Just enjoy it

  7. Sophia is walking so well! How wonderful! I also love hearing your gorgeous voice on the video :)

    Sounds like you had a great date night! We have lots of Indian casinos around here, and one day, my husband and I stopped at each one we passed and put $1 each into a nickel poker machine, played until it was gone, then moved on. Lots of cheap fun!

    A little trivia for you: Bass Pro Shops were started just an hour away from here, in Springfield, Mo. The Morris family, who started it, had a chain of liquor stores in Springfield that were extremely successful. For tax purposes, they were trying to find a second business that they could start that would actually lose money, and instead, it took off to be the empire it is now. I used to buy jeans at the original Bass Pro Shop when I was in college because they were less expensive there!

  8. Que rico, nunca había visto a Sofia así, como tan...mmm..tan... tan vertical!!... esa base esta espectacular para esa caminadora, LAS QUIERO MUCHO. Y ese papa noel.. jeje.. yo nunca le había querido dar un besito a un viejito hasta que vi esa foto.
