There a million reasons to be grateful but it's crazy how that list changes once you have a kid. Yes, I'm still grateful for Netflix and breweries, but now...it's hard to not think about how grateful and blessed I am when it comes to my kiddo. So, I wanted to compile a list of all the things I am thankful for so I can revisit it when I've had 3 hours of sleep total and crave an 8 hour a night sleep more than oxygen.
I'm incredibly grateful for:
-snuggles with my baby boy (so. many. snuggles.)
-that I could take 12 weeks off work to spend time with my little dude
-every smile our guy gives us because it erases the memory of how little sleep I get
-the brief, fleeting sleeps I get from time to time
-the delicious cold beer I can have on occasion
-the 300 mg of caffeine I'm allowed
-my husband, who has been the best teammate in life and parenthood
-our fur babies who took three sniffs of our son and decided he was in the wolf pack
-our family members--who traveled all across the US to come see our little guy and bring us food and take care of us
-our friends, who decided to do a two week meal train for us because they knew how hard being a new parent could be
-the doctors who saw our dude and were so kind and patient
-all the romance books out there because they allow the perfect escape for a couple of hours
I'm even grateful for the final adorable picture I got of this onesie, before our dog decided he wanted to eat it because it had some spilled milk on it. #RIPtomyfavoriteonesie
