I'm thankful to be a mommy.

A mommy who is blessed beyond measure.

A mommy who loves to sleep late.

A mommy who tries to pick and choose my battles carefully.

A mommy who does NOT have it all figured out.

A mommy who uses words like "tee-tee", "poo-poo" and "tootie".

A mommy whose love for my baby girl is unimaginable.
A mommy who sometimes gets frustrated and raises her voice.

A mommy who lets her baby girl stay up late on the weekends.

A mommy who prays with her baby girl every night.
A mommy who gets up and 2:00 am, grabs my girl and brings her back to bed with us. Just cause I want to. 

A mommy who's not sure what to do with a three year old that throws tantrums and constantly says no. 

A mommy who leaves dishes in the sink and clothes in the dryer.
A mommy who reads two books a night to her sweet girl and then sings lullabies.

A mommy that loves her baby's daddy. A whole bunch.

A mommy that allows her girl to go barefoot. All over the place.

A mommy who loses her patience.
A mommy that hugs and kisses her baby girl every chance I get.

A mommy who's not afraid to use bribery.

A mommy that couldn't imagine life any other way.

Heather, this is Jennifer Thomas holeman. I don't know if you remember me. I wanted you to know that I am so thankful for this blog. It gives me hope everyday. Last Wednesday morning, I gave birth to my baby girl at 26 weeks on my bathroom floor. I had already had celestone due to abrupting placenta. She ( Henlee) is in Richland NICU. She is 1 lb 10 oz. She is off vent and on cpap. Her art line was pulled today. They started feedings today through g tube. LP was negative. She got picc line 3 days ago. She is scheduled for head US tonight. It is terrifying. Erin weaver is her nurse and told me about your blog. I came home last Thursday and read the whole thing in between pumpings. I had tears running down my face the whole time mainly because I knew there was hope. I have
to refer to your page daily. It helps me to know what to expect. It makes me so happy to see Mary Kate now. I just wanted to tell the only person I know, that knows exactly what I'm going through. Thank you for this blog.
