Gratitude Monday


What I am loving today....

~A beautiful baby boy born to us on Monday June 21st at 6:34am after less than two hours of labor....

~Resting, nursing, and loving...

~A supportive partner who literally does EVERYTHING...

~A darling newly made 'older brother' who likes to "pet the baby. He's so beautiful!"

~A precious little girl who chose to stay home and watch the baby and me nap instead of running errands with her father and brother.  I woke up and found her just sitting with us.  She said she wanted to be close in case either of us needed anything....

~How crazy hungry and thirsty I am... (I totally forgot about this little random bit of postpartum)

~I love having the time I need to slowly find my ground again...


I am not sure when I will get back into full time blogging... maybe later this week?  I look forward to catching up on all the beautiful blogs I follow, I have missed you all!
Have a great week everyone~

Is there anything more adorable than baby's toes? I think not! Isn't it amazing how much the addition of another child in your family changes things, but at the same time, feels so right? Blessings to you and your precious family.

CONGRATULATIONS Amanda! How did I miss this! Has it really been weeks since I checked in here? I had been thinking about you and was wondering if you absence from your space here was because of wonderful birth news! Blessings to you all. That list just made my heart melt! x

Look t those precious little footies,, How gorgeous your family is. Congratulations on the birth of your new little babe and happy birthing day to you to. A very special time for all of you. Both my children were born at home, my first labor was long and hard and Sasha ended up in the hospital with group b strep for 10 days, my 2nd was an easy 3 hour labor,, I'm sure my body is so ready for the 3rd. Beautiful!!!
