(I'm falling behind - in order to catch up, I'll include 2 here!)
I am thankful for our pediatrician! I remember when Moses and I were in the hospital and we saw a fair # of them. It wasn't that I didn't like the others (there was a really neat guy w/a thick German accent, that would have been cool), I just feel like she is someone I would be friends w/anyway, so seeing her and talking to her about my kids feels natural. I am grateful to her for helping us so many many times when Colleen first came to us - there were so many medical things we needed to figure out! The first doctor we picked moved away before Moses was a year old, I think...she was awesome too and we were sad to see her go. But I am thankful to feel just as comfortable w/this doctor!
I am thankful for books. Have I said that one already? I haven't been able to read as much for entertainment lately...but I noticed there is a new Charles Martin book out. I'll need to restock the tissue supply before I pick it up, but hopefully soon! Some other books that I am thankful for would be When Love is Not Enough, The Connected Child, and pretty much every book I read about pregnancy and basic baby care. That stuff can be scary and if you're like me, you need to read about it in a book to feel really ready! We also have leaned on the Healthy Sleep Habits book too. In this house, the Bible and various Bible story books get read a lot too. Over the past year, some books that really impacted me were Kisses From Katie, The Mission of Motherhood and 7. Some books I would like to get my hands on would be Get Wisdom, Long Story Short, Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day, Learn Your Letters - Learn to Serve. If you want to know more about any of the books I talk about here, just ask! Or I suppose you could look them up on your own...=)
