    Love this. I know exactly what you mean about being so very thankful and having a full heart. Little ones have a way of bringing all the joy forth [even if they may not let you sleep very much]. Enjoy these precious newborn days; they are some of the very sweetest.

    What a beautiful post! I often remind myself that I will miss all these moments when my kids are grown. And I will sleep eventually… But unfortunately, I was not blessed with good sleepers.

    I meannnnnnn how SWEET is he–I want to come through the screen and snuggle baby Jack! Sometimes when Chuck and I argue I come out of it very thankful- because we work through it and don't ever walk away from one another. We learn something new and while the road isn't always easy- we walk it for a reason.

    oh he's SUCH a sweetheart!!!!
    Enjoy this time as much as you can. I remember the first days, it's such an adjustment… and there are some SUPER hard times but also seeing them grow and learn and develop, it takes your breath away. Enjoy

Keep on preaching your honest truth about motherhood (I loved your honesty in your pregnancy post!!) and being thankful! It helps remind us all to be thankful!!
