Thankful Thursday - YUMMommy

Thankful Thursday

Well, folks it's the first Thankful Thursday of the New Year!!  And I just want to start off saying that I am thankful to have been able to see 2011.  I lost a few people who I always thought would be alive and celebrating the New Year with me.  Life is so precious people.  Instead of complaining about getting another year or even another day older embrace it because tomorrow is promised to no one.

I am thankful that Moo and I have made it back to the Queen City safely.  I enjoyed spending time with my family and being able to give my mom a break from raising my niece, but I missed my hubby and he missed me too.  Plus, I had to take Moo to the doctor this morning because she could an infection in her eye from crawling around on Grandma's carpet and then putting her hands in her eyes.  Thankfully, it wasn't anything too serious or that would leave her blind. It's not contagious either.

The down side though is that she has get eye drops in her eyes every four hours for seven days.  She absolutely had a fit when we put in the first set.  I felt so bad and awful, but ultimately I know it's for her good.  Thankfully, she'll be asleep when I have to put the second set in. So, she shouldn't do too bad.

I am thankful that tomorrow is my ultrasound.  While I'd rather just not find out what we're having, I know that my husband will not be able to keep his mouth shut.  And I can't really deny him the joy of knowing the sex of our baby.  After all we did go half on it. LOL.  My mom called me this evening and said that she has a gut feeling that I'm having twins.  I hope she's wrong, but sad to say when it comes to her gut feelings she's usually right 8 of 10 times.

Guess we shall see if baby numero dos will cooperate.  Moo surely didn't.  She was always curled up in a ball under my ribs somewhere.  I'm just ready to finally get see that little person who's been hiccuping and kicking my stomach walls.

Last but not least I am thankful for my family.  They are truly life savers.  They've just been awesome at keeping me laughing and believing in me and the potential that YUMMommy has.  Love you guys!!

What do you have to be thankful for this week?


  1. Aww, I'm so sorry that she has an eye infection. It must be so tough trying to give her the eye drops. Hope she feels better soon hun.

    Congratulations again.. when your new baby comes, it is going to the best time ever! Hugs!

  2. @Alicia-Yes, it is a struggle getting her to let me put the eye drops in. She hates them with a passion. But we won't have to keep using them since the tear duct has opened back up and the swelling is going down. Two more days left.

    And yes, I can't wait for my new bundle of joy to hurry up and get here. Already designing the nursery.
