Thankful Thursday - You, My Mom & Kyla

First, I am very thankful for everyone that has been reading this blog and for the positive feedback I have received.  I truly appreciate it!  Thank you to those of you leaving comments too.  I always get really excited when I get an email letting me know that someone left a comment.  Seriously, it makes my day!  Ahh, it's the little things :)  I apologize if I'm not overly creative or interesting.  I think the most important thing about writing a blog is to be yourself and not try too hard, whether it's what people want to hear or not.  Hopefully I won't bore you too much though.  I figure when all else fails, post pictures of Kyla.  How can anyone not love seeing that cute face?

I am so incredibly thankful for my mom and everything she has done for me and continues to do for my family.  She has always been a best friend and always will be.  Tyler and Brian (my step dad) always make fun of us for how often we talk on the phone.  They say we don't go a day without talking to each other.  In reality, we talk to each about 3-4 times a day, lol!  I love you so much Mom and Kyla is so lucky to have you as her Grandma.  You are the most selfless and generous person I know!

I have to add how thankful I am for having such an awesome baby.  We had such a long day, but she was a trooper.  We took off early this morning to get to Darlington to have her pictures taken again.  She was such a good girl.  I sat her down and this is the first picture we got...

After her pictures we drove another 45 minutes to Lancaster to help my Grandma pack.  We were there about 3 1/2 hours, drove back to my mom's and then finally home.  Lots of driving!  She was perfect the whole day at my Grandma's and in the car.  We got home just in time for a bottle, a bath and bedtime.  She was sure worn out!

No swaddle and no longer needing Mommy to hold her to sleep!  She's the best!

Goodnight my sweet baby :)

More of her professional pictures coming tomorrow.  Momma's exhausted!
