I've found quite a few things to smile about in the last twenty four hours. I thought I'd share. There are the small things:
  • Like Littles eating an entire strawberry in one bite
  • And watching the Man study at night
  • And harmonizing to Etta James with Littles
  • And spice cake (enough said).
And the bigger things:
  • Like fluffy white snow to watch and play in
  • The Man coming home early
  • Finding out I'm having a NIECE
  • One or two really good books (yes, this is on the bigger things list)
  • Jesus...
But I think God send me these special little blessings because Little's teething has been, well, torturous this week, and He knew I needed a pick me up. So when the Little Bub demands to be held all day and whines and fusses and is generally annoying, I think about...his face when he tasted snow for the first time, a phone call from a good friend just because, an alter-ego blog, sweet and sour chicken, and curling up on the couch with the Man to watch The Sing-Off. Because one day (hopefully in the not too distant future) Littles will have all of his teeth in, and it'll be something else that's driving me crazy. And I will find special little blessings to pay attention to then.


  1. great list!! I love when roo comes home early too!

  2. I'm glad you're reflecting on these smiley moments AND I'm so thrilled Micah is going to have a little sister! Can't wait!!
