Thankful Thursday - YUMMommy

Thankful Thursday

I am finally back home after an almost three week stay at my mom's house.  I have missed you all and not being able to interact and blog as much as I wanted to.  Anyways, I just want to jump right into Thankful Thursday and say that I am thankful for the time I did get to spend with my family.  They were all surprised by  how much JJ had grown and changed.  I am thankful that we were all able to come together and celebrate my niece's 6th birthday yesterday!! 

We had a blast.  I have lots of pics and crazy videos that I have been sworn to keep private. LOL.  However, I might just have to post a few to YouTube. Just kidding.  But I'm already anticipating the next birthday in our family.  I got stuffed full of pizza, ice cream and juice.  Yes, I will have to start working our harder for real to shed those pounds.

I am thankful that JJ got to bond with his grandma, aunties and cousin during our visit.  I think that he will certainly remember them the next time we go down.  Babies are a little apprehensive about anybody other than mommy and daddy for the first couple of weeks.  So, this time away from home really helped him adjust better to them.

I am thankful that I had safe trip back home.  We had a really nasty storm before we left and are expected to have more rainy weather later today.  However, God was with us and allowed the weather to stay clear our entire ride back home.  I am thankful that JJ went back to his normal sleeping through the night schedule and that he slept in his bassinet.  He did not sleep a wink during the night at my mom's.

I am also thankful that I got to wake up to my loving husband this morning after weeks apart.  They say absence makes the heart grow fonder and they're right.

What do you have to be thankful for this week?


  1. I am thankful for my husband and kids... They always make me feel better.

  2. Glad you are back. Looking forward to new posts.
