Many little gifts each day

I am so grateful to have had this week to rest up and recover from our fantastic Florida vacation. I'm feeling really good still with this pregnancy, but I'm definitely having trouble sleeping at night, mostly because I can't stay comfortable for long. The heartburn is back, but started much later this time than when I was pregnant with Sweetpea.

The time off also gave me some more time to spend time with Sweetpea before she becomes the big sister. She is at such a fun age - so verbal and coming up with some adorable ideas. While we were on vacation she had some scratches on her feet from trips around the pool. She pointed to a little cut on her toe one morning and told me, "look Mommy, I have a boo boo on the finger of my foot!" She has started acting out some of her favorite books or shows - she'll tell me who I am and who she is, and she does a great job or remembering her lines.

Another favorite game lately is playing "super Sweetpea" where we put dishtowels in the backs of our shirts and run around finding things to save. I get to be her sidekick, supermom! I admit, no matter the context, there is something magical about hearing your daughter call you supermom. ;)

Here are a few more entries from my gratitude journal this week:

*an amazing amount of beautiful snapdragons in our front flower garden that came up from last year's seed droppings. Sweetpea helped me pick a beautiful bouquet of them to brighten the kitchen this week!*

*snacking strawberries and raspberries straight from the plant*

*watching Sweetpea explore the garden each morning looking for new vegetables and ripe fruit*

*cooler weather and gentle rain, a welcome relief from the heat and the dust*

*the smell of freshly cut grass and clover on a hot day*

What are you grateful for this week?

Strawberries and rasberries right in your garden - yum! Glad you are feeling good and rested.

I was stopping in to let you know I'm linking your pulled pork recipe on my menu plan today and will also feature it sometime in the next week or so. I don't remember if I told you about it or not, but I am one of the contributors at the new Krazy Kitchen blog. We'd love to have you linking up some of your great recipes over there. Check it out...
