It's snowing again today and it seems that it's coming down hard. We'll just let the world keep going outside and stay snug in our covers inside. 

These days, I'm thankful for toys scattered all over the floor and nap times that bring peace. It means one little healthy boy played hard and when he awakes, we'll repeat. Over Christmas we sponsored a baby who was so terribly sick and is now an angel from above. My heart goes out to her family. At the same time, it has made me count my blessings even more. Every time I wake up in the middle of the night to make another bottle, for the never ending laundry, for the never ending game of pickup, for hours of story time and gym classes. I love my sweet smiling Henry. He makes these winter days feel cozy and warm in our little apartment.
