Wait, it's not Thanksgiving, the Thankfulness-season is over right?

I mean tomorrow you pack away all the shiny Christmas decor (except the outside lights that didn't get put up this year... AGAIN), your house goes back to every day boring, and the holidays are O-V-E-R.

So you don't have to be Thankful anymore, right? And New Years Resolutions are kinda of old news too - who actually follows through?

So, I am going to break the trend here today. I am thankful as all get out this morning.

Maybe it's the extra sleep that Logan let me get last night (he did so good!)

Maybe it's the coffee and the Oh's.

Maybe it's the 4 day weekend with my hubby...

But man I am a happy chick this morning.

I am thankful for my healthy, squirmy, silly, handsome baby boy.

I am thankful for my healthy (he did great at his physical!), funny, handsome, supportive, sort of patient husband.
I am thankful for my family and friends.

I am thankful that Preston is being a super tough little man. I seriously can't wait to meet him, maybe only second in line to his own parents. Read updates here: Pineapples N Pickles

I am inspired by this blog: Reagan's Blob
Which also makes me thankful.

I know it's easy to step into selfish mode.
*whine* I am tired all the time!
*whine* I don't know why he is crying!
*whine* I don't get to cook dinner anymore!

So if there is a resolution to be made, and kept, it will be to be less selfish. Lee and I are selfish folks. We like our time alone together. We like our wine and good food. We don't do anything that we don't want to do. Pretty much ever.

But now, with Logan, you can't be selfish anymore.

So what you don't get 10 hours of sleep anymore? (right?)

I read this book last night (at like 2am) about how you need to enjoy the first few months of new baby because when you look up and he is 1 year old, destroying the house, terrorizing the dogs - you won't even remember the stupid crying you did at 3am when all you wanted to do was freaking sleep in your own bed -you will be chasing this kid around while he squeals and discovers things.

And life will rock.

This post was random. Maybe I need more coffee?

Love this post. Way to make the 9 month pregnant gal cry on NYE :) I'm starting to learn that counting our blessings is truly what life it all about.
