30 days of gratitude, day 14

Things I am grateful for (or that, depending on the phrasing), daily during November.

  1. SteelyKid's immune system has, sometime when we weren't looking, matured enough that she no longer gets every cold that goes around daycare. Her getting sick is much rarer these days.
  2. I have awesome co-workers who are smart, enthusiastic, and generous.
  3. Babysitters. =>
  4. Chad's parents, who I get along with so well and who are so generous to our family.
  5. I've weaned the Pip to the point where he's only nursing twice every twenty-four hours, which means NO MORE PUMPING.
  6. It's ten to twelve and all the TV networks plus the AP have called it for Obama, without relying on Florida—so I get to be grateful for both the content and the timing of the news.
  7. No need to wait until the end of the day for this: the Pip is one today. Happy Birthday, buddy!
  8. Today's 10,000+ word brief went out with minimal high drama.
  9. The Pip was astonishingly calm about his physical today. The only thing he objected to was his shots, and only for long enough to eat a couple Cheerios after.

    Also enormous baby is enormous: weight: 25 pounds 14 ounces, 96th percentile; height: 31", 89th percentile; head circumference: 48.25 cm, 95th percentile.

  10. Dry fallen oak leaves: the satisfying crunch, the slightly sweet smell, the enormous piles that can be raked up, and the fun that can be had with those piles:

  11. Thank you, veterans, for your service.
  12. Days off—unexpected ones, even (I never wrote down on my work calendar that work was observing Veterans Day on Monday, so I had no idea we had it off until a co-worker mentioned it on Friday).
  13. Team parenting.

  1. Tonight, I tripped and fell while playing Flying Baby!! (holding the Pip belly-down and whooshing him through the air), but did not hurt or even scare said Baby!!, somehow.
