We are doing great at home, except for sleep. I'm almost done with clinical...only one more day after today! One more test, and my defense. This time next week, I will be finished!!!!! I can't wait to have my MNSc!
Right now I am praying for the right job to give me time with Avery. I'm praying about finances, and passing my test to be credentialed as an APN. But this post is about what I'm thankful for...

I'm thankful for our sweet girl Avery Grace. She is so precious, even when she's screaming her little head off. I prayed so long and hard for her, I try to treasure every moment in case she is our only child. Every day she does something else amazing. Last week she smiled...this week she is pushing up from her tummy and holding her head up FOREVER! She's growing up so fast! I can't believe she is almost 8 weeks old!

I could go on individually about my brother and his wife and all of the Shuler clan, and all my friends. I'm so thankful for all the people in our lives!
Most of all I am thankful for Jesus and salvation. I know that sounds all "churchy" but it is true. Going through infertility last year, then being pregnant all year, I have prayed more now than at any time in my life. I feel so much closer to God now than I have since college. He has brought me so much comfort and peace through all of this. I have such a testimony of faith for Him and His glory after this year!
