Thankful Tuesday

It's Tuesday, a day to stop and think about the blessings in my life. Don't we all need to do this once and awhile?

Right now, I am thankful for...
  • My mom and sister. I went home to Philly this weekend for my baby shower. They did an amazing job capturing my personality with everything down to the food, favors, drinks and decor (more details to come on the shower soon). 


  • A positive doctor's report this week! After learning that the baby has two vessels instead of three in his/her umbilical cord, things were a bit unsettling to say the least.  However, after another look at the baby's development, doctors are optimistic for a healthy little one, with two vessels and all! 
  •  a sweet niece who exhibited her childlike joy for my baby shower the entire weekend.  
  •  Generous family and friends who have purchased necessities and "just for fun" gifts for the baby.  
  • Reuniting with childhood and college friends.  It's a wonderful feeling to be back in the presence of those friends who have watched me grow up from a scrawny teen covered in pimples to a preggo mama (who still has pimples...stupid hormones!)




 I'm sure you can think of a few things to be thankful for, so please share!

My 3-year old son had a "2VC" (that's 2-vessel cord) and everything went just fine! (I did end up w/ the c-section though -- only one out of 4 deliveries -- and that was part of it... Good luck to you!)

I am thankful for an 18 year old son who didn't get his first choice (CGA) or second choice (VMI) college but has a great spirit to accept his third choice (Lynchburg College) who has kept a very positive attitude and is excited to go to LC in the fall!! I am soooo proud of him for all the hard work to get this far!!!

So thankful for you too, Emily. Cate was glad that you came to see her gym class.

I love your cute baby bump! I love your hair...enjoy your pregnancy hair while you can! :-)

I am thankful for Spirit and scallion pancakes. (It's not random -- okay it is -- Sprite because of the bubbles helps settle an unsettled stomach due to stomach bug and scallion pancake because it was delicious!!)
