Gratitude Monday....

What I love today....

~New smart phones...
(I resisted a looong time for various reasons, but damn, these are fun!)

~A tiny (big fat) baby who took his first bath with me....


~A little boy who flies around like an airplane with one arm that "has fire", and "one arm that can hurt you" (I swear I haven't introduced the concept of weapons) in one moment while the next moment he's found taking a quiet break to cut out a fabric veil to wear under his princess crown that matches nicely with his poofy pink princess dress that he's put on.
That's balance. 

~A little girl who's beginning her school career this years in much unexpected ways.
(more on that later) 

~Prepairing our home, and lives for some biiig changes.... 

~starting my postpartum weight loss  plans... 
(you should see me try to belly dance, its both hilarious and pathetic) 

~A partner who knows that I've always wanted a picture of a humming bird, but some how miss my opportunity (baby in arms, missing camera etc) so he sat out one morning on our camping trip and waited for them.  The photo credit goes to him this week, and I am very grateful.

~Camping photos.  I love them so much that I am planning a whole blogging week of them!!!

Here's to a super week for all of us.
  I have so many goals, we'll see what actually gets done...

Love the picture! Good job Matt!

I am excited to hear about your schooling adventures. And I would LOVE to laugh with you while belly dancing. (Meaning I would belly dance with you, not sit on your couch and laugh at you...)

What a great photo! and beautiful feeder!
Your *flying boy* made me laugh...my boy has fire from his hands too and yes somehow somewhere (??) he has learnt the sounds of cocking a gun!? Do you think boys have inbuilt knowledge of such things?
