Today I’m joining Taryn at Wooly Moss Roots for Gratitude Sunday.
So, honestly, this week has been a little challenging. Lincoln has been awake the majority of the night, for the last 5 nights in a row. Not crying, not fussing, just talking up a storm! All. Night. Long. We still use a baby monitor with him since he’s still in his crib, so we hear every little peep. Needless to say, Dustin, Lincoln and I have been a bit sleep deprived this week. Don’t know what this is; could be teething, could be developmental… who knows. I’m just hoping it turns a corner soon so we can all get some sleep! I just feel weird about turning the baby monitor off. How long did you use a baby monitor for with your child/ren?Anyways, here are my gratitudes for this week… a much needed thought process for a grumpy mama.
- Going to the Bend Fall Festival today with my little family and watching Lucy eat her first caramel apple.
-Lincoln’s cute blossoming vocabulary. If you ask him where something is, like his horse, he’ll say “There she is horse!” It’s “there she is ______” no matter what you’re talking about. I love the gender assignment.
-The weather is getting chillier and I am loving wearing cozy clothes again!
-Speaking of clothes, good finds at the thrift store this week. There is so much satisfaction in getting an article of clothing for a fraction of what it would cost new!
-Dustin surprising Lucy, Lincoln and I by bringing one of our barred rock chickens into the house for petting, tucked under his arm.
-My angora bunny Hurley fully cooperating for his shearing this time, and enjoying the attention. I have 3 angoras, I shear them every 90 days for fiber. 1 bun down, 2 to go!
-Pulling out the fall decorations and putting them up. I just got this garland in the mail yesterday from a seller on etsy, I adore it! So simple and pretty! It makes me happy.
-Getting out Lucy and Lincoln’s fall books from storage. They get so excited when I get the seasonal books out. In November is one of our favorites!
-Good books for mama, too. I just finished this one, it’s so bittersweet to finish a good series.
What are you grateful for this week?
