Good Things: August

September 1, 2011

August has been an excellent month. I didn’t have to work at all, got so much done around the house, and made lots of progress on this whole motherhood thing. It was easy to come up with one good thing each day!

1 – Organizing the nursery more thoroughly and getting my nails done

2 – Lots of relaxing and reading

3 – Newborn pics with Cio and going through the birth pics

4 – Watching David hold Meredith and sing her to sleep

5 – My mother-in-law meeting Meredith for the first time (she was out of town by necessity when M. was born)

6 – Making a Moby wrap and wearing Meredith in it successfully

7 – My MIL watching Meredith in the morning & letting me sleep in

8 – Visiting work with M. and going to the doctor

9 – A visit from my friend Elizabeth and her son Grayson

10 – Taking M. to see David at work

    LOVE this post…I am going to start keeping track since I think so often we forget the good and only remember the bad.

    Copied this idea from you, as you saw, because I loved it so much. It was so much fun remembering the good moments of each day! It’s going to be a fun way to track Meredith as she grows, too!
