Happy Friday, y'all!

Last night I slept instead of writing. Which puts me back behind on my NaNoWriMo project. 
Considering I fell asleep on the couch and never heard a thing, including people going to bed, taking trash out, etc..., I obviously needed it. No big. I'll try to make up for it all tonight.

I am also way behind on getting this post done!
It is Friday and, therefore, time to give you my list of gratitude for this week.

1. The fact that my kids sleep in. 

Big Girl Bed!
(did I mention that they grow up too fast?)
I love it most mornings because, while I don't normally sleep in, I appreciate having the quiet time in the morning to have my first cup of coffee and ease into the day.
Mornings like this I appreciate it even more because I didn't have a reason to get up and I don't think I could have if I had wanted to (so afraid I might be getting sick!). So it was awesome that they both slept until almost 9 a.m.
A side note on this: Sometimes it drives me crazy that, at 9 months old, Tobin still wakes up once in the middle of the night. Then I realize that this is probably why he sleeps so late, and if I have my druthers, I'd rather have it this way. I really like having my early mornings to myself (well, and my little extra baby face on the days that she is here).

2. The mute button.
One of man's greatest gifts. I don't know how people can sit and listen to commercials. Seriously, in confounds me. Hahaha!

3. The Teenager's first "real" boyfriend.
Seriously, you guys. I'm so glad that her first "relationship" experience is with someone who is such a sweetheart. They've only been officially dating for three months (in fact, he was surprising her today with a "three month" anniversary surprise - so cute), but they are so hilarious together. They spend time with us and with his family. He is completely comfortable around us, and loves the babies. He doesn't mind that, when they are here, he's pretty much surrounded by toys and toddlers who climb all over him. I'm just glad to see her so happy.

4. The Teenager, herself.
This one just came to me because I got a text from one of her friends asking if she could stay over tonight. The thing is... I took Mikaila's phone away months ago. And I mean months ago. So many months ago that I can't even remember how many months ago it was. Another thing I can't remember? Where I put it.
Most teenagers would throw fits and tear the house down in their teenage rage. Not my kid. Her reaction?  Whatever. We'll find it someday.
She has to reach me through other people's phones, which she does. Always. Other teenagers might use this as an excuse to cop an attitude and conveniently never be able to be reached because "well, you lost my phone!"
Not my kid. Because she is awesome.

5. These eyes:
