Happy moments

You never realize how blessed you are until you see the opposite. Henry got shots today and he has not been happy at all. He is not smiling much. It makes me so sad! It makes me so thankful for what a truly happy baby he is

Henry woke up at 3:30 this morning. It was way to early for me. Chris was kind enough to get up with the kids so I could sleep in until about 7:15.
