Thankfulness

It’s been a while not because I’ve been avoiding the blog but because life has been full and good. 

N is just so so so so much fun, interesting, compelling, hilarious, and loving lately.  We seem to be getting through the “no longer a napper” stage and he can actually stay up past 6pm on two consecutive days.  It’s hard to describe his new phase because in many ways, it’s an extenion of previous stages but he’s just so much more talkative and funny. 

We did have a little incident which I learned from.  I had placed an x-mas gift in our close thinking it wouldn’t be a big deal.  Well, of course someone saw it and was absolutely, completely, and totally hearbroken when I told him it was for another little boy but I was sure that Santa would bring him one.  That seemed to break his heart even more and after an hour of break down, we said uncle.  Frankly it was worth it to see the joy in his face.  He was so happy to have a large, plastic, noise, Buzz.  He just had to share it with everyone from Joe and I to the dog to pretty much anyone who has come across.

Tita is doing well.  She’s really been hitting the books lately and she turned around most of her grades.  She’s accomplished so much in such a short period of time – we are so proud of her.  She’s an absolute delight to have around and we so feel so fortunate to have her part of our lives.  She has a terrific sense of humor and it’s just so neat to see her blossom. 

Life isn’t perfect – work is trying for both of us and there are a few other things we need to turn around.  But this is about thankfulness and today, at this very moment, I feel incredibly thankful.
