I'm thankful for...
Motherhood x 2. Just when I thought motherhood couldn't get any better...Jonathan arrives and my heart grew to fit in so much more love for our second born. I absolutely love being a mom. It's tough---I often times want to pull my hair out and I have minor breakdowns at least once a week, but I wouldn't change it for the world. It is the toughest and most rewarding job and I'm blessed to have the title of "Mom".
Time with Family. This summer was such a great one. We got to spend almost 4 straight months at home. Kaitlyn really got to know her Grandparents, Aunts and Cousins and being close to family as we welcomed Jonathan into the world was priceless.
Small miracles. This past summer and especially when we first arrived in Tel Aviv, Kaitlyn wasn't sleeping very well. She would go to bed just fine, but wake up in the middle of the night for 1-2 hours followed by a 5a.m. wake up call. It was awful. Luckily, she's snapped out of that and we now get much better sleep! It may not seem like a miracle, but it sure feels like one.
Huge miracles. In early January, I received a horrible phone call from Liane informing me that our friend and college roommate, Kim, was in the hospital. She was in a coma and her family was told she may never wake up. Apparently, someone must have told Kim that the doctors were giving her such a grim prognosis, because in true Kim fashion, she woke up (after 17 days) and proved them all wrong. Liane and I flew to Cincinatti a few weeks later and got to see her ass-kicking in person. It was amazing. She is amazing and she continues to kick butt. She paid me a surprise visit in August to attend my baby shower. It was such a wonderful surprise and I was so thrilled to see her doing so well. She rocks!
