Today I am thankful for baby GIRLs….
and sisters, and bows, and dresses, and giggles, and pink.
Well, at least 98% thankful. Which is what the lovely ultrasound tech told us was the possibility of the baby being a girl when my (probably) daughter would not move her legs from the one position that hid her gender. I am also thankful the tech was gracious enough to schedule us for another ultrasound, you know, just to be sure.
A few months ago one of my friends told me she thought the baby was a boy, or a very strong willed girl. I shuddered at the thought of a girl more strong willed than Ina. Now I am starting to think it is correct, because although (probably) she wouldn’t move during the ultrasound, she was having a full on dance party from 2:30 to 5 this morning.
I am thankful that Dan made dinner last night while I was working.
Ina has a new obsession with my home office and wants to join me anytime I go there. So many things to see and buttons to press! So, I am forever grateful to Mickey Mouse, who kept my daughter out of my office while Dan couldn’t.
I am thankful for snow.
“Momma, let’s eat the snow, ONE more time!” while holding up her one little pointer finger. We tasted the snow “one more time” about twenty times.
I am thankful for the beginning of spring. I know it snowed last night, and the majority of the days ahead show snow in the forecast, but yesterday I could smell it. As I was walking into work, I could tell spring was near. Also, the past few mornings I have heard birds singing, which is always a promising sign, right?
I am thankful that yesterday’s breakfast tasted better than it looked, which was obviously pretty easy.
I am thankful for Danielle and her allowance of Ina being “bare bottom” while potty training. So, for the second time in this post, I am thankful for dresses.
What are you thankful for?
