I think that these days I don't show my gratitude for a lot of the things that I have been blessed with.  It is so easy to get caught up in life and forget about how lucky I really am for everything in my life.

I am grateful for my beautiful kids.  They are the joy within every single day for me.  They make me laugh all day and they make me so proud to be their Mommy.  There are days where I get stressed out and all I want to do is hide from everyone but I wouldn't trade that stress for anything in the world.  I am so lucky to be able to share my life with such amazing little people.

I am grateful for my incredible family, every single one of my of my relatives has had some sort of effect on my life and I am thankful for all of them including the family that I was so lucky to marry in to.  Family has always been a huge part of my life, some of my best friends are actual family members and I am very grateful for them.

I am grateful for the friends that I have made and the ones that are still around for me today.  I love my friends and even though some of us have grown apart I still feel close to them and I am thankful for the time that I do get to spend with them.

I am grateful that we are able to have our own house and a safe place for our family to live.  There are days where I complain that our house is about to bust at the seams because of our growing family. (and clutter!)  But in reality we are lucky to have our own house and for that I am very thankful.

And last but definitely not least, the thing that I am extremely grateful for is my husband Antonio.  He is the reason that I have so many things to be grateful for.  He makes me smile the biggest and laugh the hardest.  He really is my best friend and partner in life.  He makes huge sacrifices for this family and he never complains about it.  Our life is not perfect but it is perfect for us and I wouldn't change anything about it.  I really love getting to be his wife and being able to spend time with him everyday.

This is in no way the end of my list of things that I am grateful for but it is a start and it feels good to write out these things and acknowledge them.  I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday!

Almost There!

We are down to about 3 weeks left until we get to meet our little Finn!!  I am at the stage where I am starting to get nervous about the labor.  The same thing happened when I was pregnant with Autumn and Deegan.  I psych myself out and scare myself usually right before I go to bed when my thoughts are racing!  I know in the end I will be just so happy to have my family of 5 all together!  I can't wait to spend time with just the 5 of us so that we can all bond together.  I feel like Finn will complete us as a family and I am so excited for him to be here.  Anytime I leave the house Deegan asks me if I am going to "Go get Finn taken out?" or when I come home he asks "Did your baby come out yet?"  I know the kids are super excited for their new little brother and I can't wait for them to meet him.
