The past few days I’ve felt really overwhelmed with gratitude. I was in the process of creating a blog post around that when I remembered that since it’s the end of the month, it’s time for the Project Smile (hosted by Kristi and Alicia) blog hop anyway!
I get to go to Ohio and Wisconsin in 3 weeks! I haven’t been home in a year and have been terribly homesick at times. One of my brother’s best friends is getting married and we’re going to bless Baby J in the congregation I grew up in the next day, and visit so many friends and see our cousins and take tons of pictures and it’s going to be great.
Deep pressure therapy. I loooove the OT who taught me about this! It’s really made a difference for M when he’s having a sensory meltdown. Like tonight….he woke up screaming and head banging and he started gagging because he was crying so hard. Some well-placed squeezes and he was back asleep within minutes. IT’S AMAZING PEOPLE!
Chicken nachos. I got this recipe off a bulletin at church. Cook up 2 chicken breasts (shredded), 1 can black beans, 1 can corn, 1 can tomato sauce, taco seasoning, and a cup of cheese together in a pan. Pour over tortilla chips and top with whatever else you want. They are soooo good.
I get to take a cake decorating class this summer. I have always wanted to and now I finally am. I registered for it yesterday, along with a parent/child soccer class with M. Maybe he’ll do his Brasilian roots proud and be the next Pelé!
These guys. I mean seriously…who wouldn’t wake up with a big smile on their face every morning if they got to hang out with these two? Plus, I get to be at home with them. Mark and I still look at each other almost daily and say “Can you believe these are our kids? How are we this lucky?”
