Monday Happies


In no particular order...

  • Thomas earned his flying wings with four separate flights.
    He was a champ - even when the flights were full, when he was tired, when we were tired. Here he is above, with his new handmade taggie blanket from his great-great Auntie Pat from Ames, Iowa. Perfectly sized for his car seat. Love it!
  • My amazing husband.
    I came home to a house with two newly groomed doggies who had beautiful short haircuts. I found an empty dishwasher, folded clothes, boxes sorted and nearly everything on my "honey do" list crossed off. The best bonus surprise? Read on...
  • Thomas's bedroom has long been full of things. It is less full of things now.
    When I say "full", I mean really full. It's Jonathan's room from when he was growing up. He's been working on cleaning out the room for Thomas -- which he has been making great progress on -- but we have a few large items that prohibit a crib from moving in. Doesn't every nursery have a full size punching bag, treadmill and piano in it? When I came home, a giant space was cleared in the garage, and the punching bag was making progress towards the garage. It was grand.
  • A great week with family.
    Going through the photos makes me happy. Being able to spend time with Thomas and our extended family (on both sides) was a huge blessing.
  • Surprises in the mail.
    Coming home to a collection of magazines (always good when you're nursing), mail, cards, a new return address stamp from Lettergirl (who does amazing work!) and a stack of newspapers.
  • Finding Jonathan and the Wee Ski cuddled up together.
    This week apart was hard on both of us -- but especially Jonathan since he got to hear about everything we were doing, instead of being there for it. He cozied up with Thomas and told him about his week...when I came back, Thomas was sound asleep in his papa's arms.

Looking forward to Thomas's 2 month appointment tomorrow, and getting settled in back at home.

Maybe with Serenity Now tea from Gong Fu Tea.

It's good to travel, but it's great to be home. ♥

Glad you & Thomas had such a wonderful trip. I think flight travel with itty babies is the best...you figure out things early on that do prepare you for what NOT to do on future flights!

Glad you are home safe & sound!
