Love the picture of Bennett laughing in his diapers. He is one chubby and handsome baby!

And we will miss the Rosses too, so sad to see them go. Great picture of all three of you.

I love the ones about slobber and rocking and clingyness. Those are my favorite things to praise God for right now! Without those things there would be to baby...and I am so thankful for my sweet boy I could never ever quite put it into words. Love your heart!!

I’m here from Ann’s today.

First – I am blessed – so blessed that you read my “marriage” posts – it’s only because of Ann that I wrote them. Thank you Amber..

My favorite from your thankful list is this one …

2067. to keep practicing thanks, even when I don't "feel" thankful (this takes faith – and this you have. I heart that you are transparent enough to admit it – and I know God smiles)

Oh, and Happy Valentine’s Day.

God Bless and Keep you and your family

I LOVE the picture of B out in the yard. And I'm so glad you took that picture of all of us.
I'm looking forward to discussing One Thousand Gifts - I've just read more and it really is a great book.

Oh. My. Gosh. That is quite possibly the cutest boy I have ever seen. (Except for maybe my own) I found you on Momtog! and I love your blog!

Love your lists! You inspire me to pay more attention to the little blessings, not just big things. I need to get better at writing things down right away so I remember.

I'm sooo itching for the days that I can send my boys out in the yard shirtless! We hit the mid 40's over the weekend - feels almost tropical to me after -25 with windchill. ;)

what a wonderful idea to list the things you are thankful for, helps you remember things to appreciate doesn't it?
