A Month to be Thankful: Day 22

Day 22: Thankful for Rest

okay, today, i am super thankful that colton is such a great sleeper. he still gets up at 4:30 every morning to eat but 9-11 hours straight every night is amazing.

other than the first few days of motherhood, i really don't have those "exhausted" moments (i mean, i still do but very minimal) - probably because colton sleeps like a champ and still takes four naps a day over an hour a piece. what can i say, the kid loves his sleep. (it will probably be a different story once #2 comes into the picture... i know, i know)

i am so glad the lord knows our circumstances in life and provides what we need. he knows that i need sleep. he knows that i have to work. he knows that i need to clean the house. or do the laundry. or the eight million other projects going on. so he has perfectly made colton to be content when laying on his activity play mat or peacefully naps for an hour so i can answer emails or clean up the kitchen. so thankful.

so today, i am thankful for the rest i am able to get. the six-seven hours straight of sleep, or the little cat nap i sneak in during the afternoon, i am thankful.
