Simply Thankful

Today I am doing my very first guest post on Michelle's blog, Thankful for Thursdays. Michelle recently started her blog and was looking for guest posts for her Holiday Series. I promised her before Thanksgiving that I'd submit a post, but with the chaos of celebrating holidays and being a mama, writing was put on the back burner. Since I really wanted to come through for Michelle, I stayed up way past my bedtime and started writing. Here's a little teaser of my guest post:

If you were to ask me what I'm most thankful for in 2015, I wouldn't miss a beat before answering. Each and every day when I look into my sons eyes, I am thankful that God gave me the privilege of becoming a mother, his mother, this year. 

You can go here to see everything that I'm thankful for this year.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas from our house to yours!

I'm so thankful to be a family of three this Christmas! May you always remember the real reason we celebrate this very special day. It's not for the toys, food, or even Santa and his reindeer. We celebrate because baby Jesus was born in the manger and later died so we may spend eternity with Him. What an incredible gift we were so selflessly given!

Merry Christmas!

Micah's 3 month check in

You weren't a fan of having your picture taken this month, so this is what we got. I promise, you do smile!

This picture cracks me up! Daddy and I were acting like fools to get you to smile but you were over having your picture taken and weren't afraid to let us know.

This month was extra special because you got to meet your grandma that lives all the way in Vietnam! She just loves you to pieces and doesn't want to put you down.

I can't believe it's already been 3 months! I was telling Daddy that it seems like you've been in our lives forever. I don't remember what we did with our time before you were born! I'll love you forever, my little man.


Your 2 month check in is a little late - almost a month - but, better late than never! It seems like there is a new first every day in our house. The Hubby and I are like two giddy kids on Christmas morning each time you hit a new milestone. At the pediatrician this morning you weighed 10 pounds 15.5 ounces and were 22.5 inches long. Here's some more fun facts about your second month of life.

For Halloween you were Baby Frankenstein. Daddy called you Frankenstank haha!


You are such a serious little man and it's so hard to get you to smile, but when you do my mommy heart explodes.

Wearing your first Christmas jammies!
