Day 19

Flowers picked by my little boys just for me.

I love how when they see a flower, they must think of me and how it would make me happy:)

Day 18

For lovely long nights.

I just love summer and being able to faff around outside until late before it gets dark.  Tonight I got out and weeded my vege gardens, did some pruning, raking, staking, watering.. It was so nice to get out of the house and have some me time.

Day 17.

For being able to bake anything I like again!

Last night we had Lemon Meringue Pie for the first time in 2 years!  Chase has just been given the all clear that he is no longer allergic to egg, so we are going hard on all the yummy egg recipes that we couldn't use a egg replacer for:)  Yummo!

Day 15

For lovely little soft chubby hands.

The last couple of days, and especially today, have been rough Cooper days, but even though we have these days, I still just absolutely love him to pieces and couldn't imagine what our life would be like if we chose not to have him.  Often I hold his little hands, they are so soft and chubby and teeny.  While I'll be glad when this reflux year is over, I will miss little things like him holding onto my finger with those tiny little hands.

My lovely Flynn.

Today Flynn and I bumped into each other at church in between classes, we had such a lovely wee chat as we walked down the corridor to our next classes.  I thought to myself how calm and grown up he was becoming.  He wasn't being all silly, just telling me all about what he had done in class and when he had to go the other way from where I was going, he politely excused himself and said he'd see me soon.  I know it seems like nothing, but I really got a bolt of "Wow my boy is growing up into a lovely little man".

Day 14

For ticking things off lists.

What a thrill I get from ticking something off my to do list.  Today we ticked off loads of things. 

Day 13

For movie nights!

I'm grateful for some chilled time with my family during movie nights.  Tonight it was the Smurfs!  The kids always get so excited in the lead up to movie night, it's so exciting getting to stay up late and eat yummy snacks:)
