Thankful Thursday 4-18-13

Hey guys,

Can you believe we are almost done with April?! Is it just me or is this year flying by?! So we are back to another Thankful Thursday.

Today (specifically) I'm thankful for a brand new day. Yesterday was tough. Declan was having a bad day and if you are a mom or work with small children, you know that if the baby is having a bad day your day isn't full of rainbows and sunshine

This week I'm thankful for:

I can't believe my boy is on a starter sippy cup now!

He is such a good daddy. Declan down for the count!

* My wonderful husband. He makes the list often, I know. But he totally deserves it! He is so supportive and  I'm just so blessed to have him in my life.

My sweet boy.

He loves his sister. :)
*My sweet baby boy. I am so blessed to be Declan's mommy. I say it often he is the only one that can get away with driving me crazy one minute and giving me slobbery kisses the next. Or giving me that heart melting smile. Sigh! I just love my little mister! :)

* This weekend.  This weekend will be a big one for us. We are visiting Grandfather Mountain and going to Declan's first baseball game, it will be our first Hickory Crawdad's game as well. Go 'Dad's! ;)

*My bloggy business. I am thankful that I have found some very helpful blogs this week in my quest for turning my blog into a business. My blog will still be the family-friendly place that I have had since 2010! (Hard to believe!) But it's my prayer that my blog will continue to grow and I will eventually make a more steady income. This would be wonderful because my goal is to continue to be a SAHM and homeschool my son and any other children we may have. If any of you have any advice on this please feel free to share with me. You can leave a comment or email me at I would love to hear from you. :)

*Some fun and silliness from this week.

  1. Your little guy is just too cute in that baseball cap! Thanks for sharing. I'm your latest follower. Nice to meet you. Doing Thankful Thursday & A Song with Naila-Moon. Since we started this we have had a slow start so please pass the word. Hope you find time to stop by & maybe follow me too & check out some give-aways!

  2. He is just too cute for words. Totally made me remember my son when he was a baby and I had such shots of him on my hubby's lap. Oh the precious days. I miss even the bad ones. It is funny cause every time I hug them I get sentimental like they are just growing right before my eyes and I can't stop time.

  3. Your little guy is sooooo cute!! In the first picture, he looks like he's questioning the whole sippy cup idea, but in the second one - where he's passed out - he's clutching it pretty tight so I think it won him over. :)

    I also love the mustache picture! And the Batmaaan one because that's just awesome.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the comment. :)

  4. Adorable baby! Love the pictures.

    Thanks for stopping by Fibro, Fit and Fab! and leaving a comment. I appreciate it.
