i don't have much to update, but i do feel like i have a lot to be thankful for this year. the most obvious and most important of course is my husband (who gets up with the baby on the nights that he doesn't have to work and does a fantastic job), and my baby boy(who is now almost 4 weeks old!). i'm so thankful that he is healthy and growing...so many things can go wrong during pregnancy and birth, but he is perfect! i'm thankful that i'm not pregnant anymore (no offence to those who are). i'm thankful for my family and the wonderful friends in my life who have been here to help with the baby and who have just dropped by to visit...it means so much. i'm thankful for this country and our freedoms. i'm thankful that josh and i both have jobs, and that we are fortunate enough to have the funds to build a new home. there is so much more that i have to be thankful for, but those are the ones that are at the top of my list today.
