1000 gifts: #31-40

the sound of long-awaited rain drops

snuggles with a sleeping baby (hurray for babywearing!)

friends that are genuine and open, and who forgive, encourage, challenge and support me

my mother-in-law, who takes either one or both of the kids and gives me a "morning off" each week

all of our immediate family members living within 10 minutes driving of us.  Not only does this provide us with lots of babysitters, but it gives our kids the opportunity to build relationships with their grandmas and grandpas, and aunts and uncle.

a sleepover at grandma and grandpa's for the kids (Emmett's first!), which went well

sleeping in 2 mornings in a row (apparently spending 24 hours with grandma and grandpa really tires the kids out!  Wonder what it did to grandma and grandpa... :P)

a fun day trip with my hubby

Annika doing "voices" while she plays with her Little People - a high, squeaky voice for the mom (is that what I sound like??), and a low (or as low as a 3 year old's voice can go), booming  voice for the dad :)

TWO weeks without using Emmett's eczema prescription cream

I'd love to hear Annika's low, booming voice!
