How did my heart grow big enough for gratitude like this?

…for extended family who is so present, even with miles between us. Especially Mama and Papa K, who spent the past five days doting on their grandchildren and giving me a hand while Eric has been gone.

…for a healthy (almost) three-year-old who can sing I Heard Mr. Turkey Say, a K Family classic, from top to bottom, at the top of her lungs.

…for a happy husband who can come home from a red eye to take over night time feedings for his weary wife, and who spent the morning cleaning and taking care of Sidney while Jane and I took Mama and Papa K to the airport.

…for a beautiful, snuggly baby girl, who I adore with more heart than I knew I could have.

…for all the newness (home, friends) and the oldness (home, friends) we’ve been blessed with in the last year.

I am so, so grateful.
