Thankful List 2017

24 November 2017


I'm so thankful for this little family. 
For the moments when Aiden gently kisses Emma's head. 
For the sweet baby snuggles with Emma at 3am. 
For the fun impressions Devin and I do of Aiden (like "Emma POOOOOOP"). 
For the way Aiden is interested in everything--the small bug crawling by outside, the lift-the-flaps in a book, the sound his hammers ("hameems") make when he bangs them on the wooden steps. 
For the way Devin and I are a team in this. 

I'm also thankful for the tribe of people supporting us. 
For the friends that see me cry and tell me I'm doing a good job. 
For the friends that love our little ones so well. 
For the family that gives their time and energy entertaining Aiden & Emma so Devin and I can get quality time together. 
For the people who challenge me to follow Jesus better and to love others more deeply. 


One of the many reasons I love blogging is that I can look back on things I've written. Want to see some throwbacks? Here's my thankful list from 2016, 2015, and 2014








Shout out to the incredible Courtney Balban who took these photos! If you're in the Pittsburgh area, you have to look her up!
