Monday Moments of Gratitude - April 4, 2016

Monday, April 4, 2016

I'm so happy you're here!! 

I'm making a point to post on Mondays about moments I am grateful for in the past week. We can all use a little more intentional thinking about things we're grateful for. With that said, I hope you'll continue to join me in gratitude on Mondays :)

See previous Monday moments of gratitude posts HERE.

Here are a few moments from this past week that I am grateful for:

Smiling - life has been busy lately, my anxiety levels have been at an all time high and I've been more irritable than normal. You know what snaps me out of all of that? These freaking smiles!! I can't help but smile in response and then we're all smiling. 
In the words of Buddy the Elf "smiling is my favorite"

Could his grin get any bigger? Best selfie face ever!

There's nothing quite like being greeted with this post-nap grin!

This is one of those pics that really takes you back to the moment, I can't help but smile so big looking at it. She was so happy and giggly.

Fit back into my old jeans! - not just my pre-baby jeans but the jeans that were always a little small but when they did fit (all three times) they were pretty flattering (read: made my butt look nice). Um clearly I was a little excited.

Getting stuff done -  due to general feelings of 'overwhelm' lately, I have been a little immobilized around the house. There's so many things to get done and sometimes I just don't know where to start. Well, I pulled myself out of my funk, even if just for a little, threw little man in the carrier and gone stuff done!! House is already a mess again but

My big little man - guys, this guy is growing like CRAZY!!! Remember two weeks ago when he was just crawling and getting his first tooth? Ya, well tooth #2 made its appearance this week and little man is pulling himself up on EVERYTHING. WHAT?! His sister wasn't even crawling at this age. I'm so proud of him and it's amazing to watch him change daily but my gosh, where is the time going?

Dress-up - I couldn't help but laugh when mini-me pranced in the toyroom with my heels on, grabbed the phone and announced "I'm mommy". FYI: I rarely talk on the phone, had she have been texting or on Instagram, then maybe.

and this is her being daddy, obviously.

Blue Jays baseball is back!!!! - I know one of my bestie bloggy friends, Deena, can relate to this one!! There's just something about the start the your favorite team's season. Naturally, Ollie had to get in on the festivities and despite his teething, he was pretty excited about it too!

#whatmomsgoogle - Saturday marked the first in Abbie and I's series #whatmomsgoogle. I'm so happy with the response and I can't wait for the weeks to come. I LOVE what this series is all about: supporting and encouraging other mommas!!
