Of course, I am thankful for this big goofy grin (excuse the poor quality photo - not much light in our bedroom). Every time my girl smiles at me, it fills my heart.
I am thankful for my wonderfully Fabulous Dude. He deserves a post all his own - and will get one soon. Not only does he work hard to provide for our family, sometimes putting in 12+ hour days, but as soon as he walks through the door, he is fully attentive to Evalyn and I. Whether it's helping with dinner so I can feed the baby, or taking the baby so I can get something done and have a little break, he's on it. He is so wonderful with her and I can already see the bond they are developing. I'm thankful for a great husband and father.
I am thankful for Cherry Coke Zero. I told you all on Tuesday that we can't buy it in Canada so I stocked up, buying 4 cases when I was in the states. I am so glad that this nectar of the gods is back in my life. In all honesty, I am a Pepsi fan, not a coke fan, but only when it comes to the regular versions. When it comes to the flavored colas, diets, zeros and so on - I will always choose Coke.
Speaking of that, I am thankful for the United States of America and all they have to offer - mainly Cherry Coke Zero, Target, and the Carter's outlet. I had a very successful shopping day on Monday.
And to continue, I am thankful for all the button-up/open sweater options that Target had available. This nursing Mama was glad to get 5 new sweaters that look decent on her post baby body and give her easy access to the ladies at all hours of the day.
I am thankful for beautiful fall weather. We've enjoyed a beautiful autumn so far and it makes it much easier to get motivated to get out for walks than if the weather was crappolo.
I am thankful for my family and friend ands the amazing support they have been to me since Eva was born. Just this week alone, my friend Crystal came over to help with Eva so I could get some housework done, my mom came to go shopping with me, the Dude's aunt brought dinner, cleaned up my kitchen and stayed for the evening when she knew he had to work late, and my sister sent me an e-mail to encourage me when I was down. That is just the start.
What are you thankful for this Thursday?
