Thankful Thursday

~As promised my #1 thankful for the week is being cancer free! All my tests came back awesome, with no trace of cancer. The results were SO good that my doctor even mentioned the "c" word (cured but she doesn't really say that out loud =)! I won't have to have full body scans in the future probably just neck ultrasounds every few years to make sure all is still good. (Thank you for all your prayers!)

~Antibiotics...Aidan, Alayna & I all came down with strep throat last weekend! But, thanks to those great meds we are all back to the land of the living.

~Closed mouth kisses (finally) from one adorable toddler with a sweet little "pah" afterward to mimic the kissing sound.

~Alayna keeps amazing us with her speech development, she is making more attempts at words (she says "pen" while signing open) and using the first sounds of things to ask for things like beh for bear.

~Today is the final day of summer therapy for Alayna. Thankful that we get to enjoy the last 2 weeks of summer before Aidan starts back to school. Also, thankful that all her therapies in the fall are scheduled in the mornings instead of the afternoons like they are now. That does my momma heart good as I won't have to wake up a sleeping toddler to go to therapy...something feels so wrong when I have to wake her up for therapy.

I could go on and on about thankfuls like...air conditioning (it is crazy hot and humid here), safe travels for Jason last weekend as he traveled to New Jersey to watch his favorite English football club play, and family from England coming in today to meet Alayna for the very first time.
BUT, I will stop and turn it over to you for a thankful or two from your week...
