Grains of Gratitude and Blogiversary

Sometimes I wonder if I'll ever get this post done in the morning again! LOL

1. Today is my 2-year blogiversary! 2 years that I've been blogging - wow. I'm grateful I did start blogging otherwise I wouldn't have "met" all these other wonderful bloggers out there- a few I've been able to meet in person too. I never expected it to happen this way, I just started off blogging mostly for our families since we're in the military and don't live near our families. I never expected to meet so many other people. It's funny how connected you become to other bloggers just through their blogs. How you celebrate with them and say prayers when needed. Thank you all for following along with our journey and allowing me to be a part of yours as well.

2. I'm grateful nursing helpd the pregnancy pounds come off! Yay to no more maternity clothes :)

3. I'm also grateful nursing has allowed me to catch up on reading magazines :) I had such a huge stack of magazines on the counter waiting to be read. I take the time to read through them while nursing and now that pile is gone.

4. I'm grateful Lucas started to sleep better in his bassinet at night now. We have a mostly predictable nursing schedule at night too...nurse around 1030, between 130-2, then 430-530, and he wakes up about 830. I'm still feeling somewhat sleep deprived, especially realizing it will be a few more months before I can sleep through the night again!

5. I'm grateful Lucas will take a bottle of pumped milk so I can leave the house and know Joe can feed him. Kayla wouldn't take a bottle and that was a little frustrating, so I'm glad to see Lucas has no problem with it.

6. I'm grateful for the Kids' Club we went to on Friday - free pizza (yay for another night of not having to cook dinner) and Easter crafts. Kayla hadn't seen Katelyn since Lucas was born, so it was good to see her and Jennifer again.

Happy Anniversary Blog!

What a nice list. I was grateful for nursing too. It gave me the chance to sit quietly, without feeling like I should be doing something else.

Sniz said...

Wow, two years! These are wonderful things to be thankful for...and that your sweet hubby is home! My brother gets home Thursday for his R&R for 18 days, then back to Iraq until the end of October. It's too long, Michelle. His unit has an 80% divorce rate since they've been over there. The rate is 75% across the board in the Army. It's not right and what's going on with that marriage and those boys is breaking my heart. I'm sorry, this is a happy post...I didn't mean to be such a downer! I'm so glad Lucas is sleeping well and that you're back in your pre-pregnancy clothes!

Big happy blogiversary x2! It's amazing what they can become, isn't it? You have reached many and helped many and brought countless smiles via those big blueberry eyes of hers. :o)

Overwhelmed! said...

Happy Blog Anniversary!

You put me to shame. I didn't blog for over a week last week because I was so busy. You're blogging nearly daily and you have a brand new baby!

You go girl! :)

Two years! Wow! I'm grateful that I found your blog! It always makes me feel a little happier to see lovely Kayla's smile...and now to see the joy of Lucas' arrival!

Every minute counts.... said...

I think your kids are the cutest! Lucas brings much joy to your family. It is so nice that Kayla is loving her baby brother. I know nothing makes me smile bigger than to see my kids with their dad and think, look how far we have come!!

Thank you for your strength and kind words and hope that your blogging never ends!! Congrats on 2 years.

Happy blogging anniversary! I am so glad to have found your blog and been able to "meet" you and your family!

Sounds like you have had a good week!


Susie Q said...

Happy Blogversary...and I so love the photos of Kayla with Lucas after his bath. Just precious!!


Sniz said...

Michelle, my brother came home for R&R today, and he asked about you. He's sort of obsessive about writing thank you emails when he gets cards and I guess when you sent him one, he emailed me asking for your email address. But I never got his email. He thought I was ignoring him! :-) Anyway, I was wondering if you could send me your email address so I can pass it on to him? My email is arshuman@sbcglobal.net. Thanks Michelle!
