Thankfulness on Thankfulness

Monday, June 12, 2017


Yesterday my mom pointed out to me that I've got bags under my eyes that kind of make it look like I recently got into a fight. I'm living my life nap to nap and I don't feel like I'll ever not be tired again. Daniel and I haven't had a meal together since Kensington got here because she has this incredible ability to get upset as soon as our food is in front of us. 

And yet, I've never been so thankful. 

I'm thankful for the sweet, beautiful baby girl who makes me wonder how I ever did life without her. 

I'm thankful for my perfect, helpful and caring husband who is not only the greatest team mate I could ever ask for but also the worlds best dad. 


I'm thankful for my family who reminds me every day what unconditional love is. I know that Kensington will never question whether or not she is loved by the people in her life. 

I'm thankful for the long nights that I spend awake with a hungry little baby that sometimes sounds like a little pig when she eats. 

I'm thankful for the cuddles and the baby kisses and the short, perfect naps. 

I'm thankful for our little three person family and I'm just so so thankful because I have so many reasons to be. 

Our lives aren't perfect. Caring for a teeny tiny human is scary, and overwhelming and hard. But it's also wonderful, full of awe and just so great. I'm thankful because I can be, because I have no reason not to be.

Despite my apartment that I can't seem to keep clean, the fact that my baby is crying real tears these days (and breaking my heart in the process), and that I'm lucky if I can get a shower during the day, I wouldn't trade this time in our lives for anything in the world. 

I hope you have something in your life that makes you so, so thankful and that you hold onto it. 

What are you thankful for this week?
