    Just watched Max button his jammies, the look of pride on his face and even though he started with the first hole and the 3rd button I was so proud they will stay that way until morning.

    Started my day off with Pumpkin coffee in bed from My adoring Husband, ended it chasing jack trough the yard. He found it so fun I had to kick my heels off and run in bare feet in a suit to catch up to him!

    My good friend Beth wrote me a sweet email about this joy entry. It brought me to tears thinking about how fortunate I am to know how much my mother loved me and enjoyed having me in her life for 21 years. Beth said, "It's the simple things like that which happen daily with our children that give us such joy. But as her child what a wonderful thing for you to have, knowing as an adult that such a small thing you did brought her so much joy she took the time to write it down!"

    This sight brought me so much joy today! I am so moved by this site! What a beautiful gift Patricia has given her daughters, and now Kelly Giving the world! Today I picked Jack up from my moms and he cried when we were leaving because he Loves his Nanny so much he blew kisses as we pulled away and said "Oh love you nan" It melted my heart not because he cried that I was taking him but because they share such an incredible bond that even after spending the whole day with her he was going to miss her until tomorrow.

    My joy today is thanks to my wonderful husband, who despite having to get up for work this morning, sat up with our teething little man for over an hour in the middle of the night, to let me get some sleep. <3 my life!

    Aaron and I bought a fall decoration package: hay bale, corn husks, two pumpkins, huge pot of mums, little pot of mums, Indian corn and then added our own wooden autumn decorations to make a beautiful front porch display. Makes me smile!

    My sister wrote a letter to the Dean of the School of Journalism as a thank you for the networking connection that helped her land her first job. She mentioned me because I pointed her to the job posting. Yay - I'm so happy about her first professional/career job.

    I love watching my son Caleb roughhouse with his Dad too. At 15 months, I think we are just beginning... Caleb is so funny how he gets so excited when Aaron is coming after him that he stops moving and just giggles and falls over.

    My son's first very high fever, 103.6, was just a double ear-infection. Whew - one scary evening for a first-time mommy and daddy.
