a thankful heart

Wednesday, December 4, 2013

because on thanksgiving we wear fur vests.  faux fur of course.  but nonetheless, we are matching.

This thanksgiving was the best.  The best I’ve ever had.  I have so much to be thankful for and topping that list is that sweet little tiny human who follows me around all day (ok so she can’t walk or anything, I just carry her, but if she could I know she’d follow me!).  Her very first thanksgiving!  Can you believe it?  I still can’t.  I took a ton of pictures but realized only late night that we hadn’t taken a single video!  So Matt rushed to get the camera and immediately started video taping little G getting into her PJs.  So we have that.  Whew.  Crisis averted.  And she was such a happy baby all day, despite that fact that she has come down with her first for real cold and has been sleeping in her car seat upright for the past 5 days!  I mean, I’m not a nice lady when I am stuffy – but G?  The nicest baby lady you’ll ever meet – even with a stuffy nose.

But I can’t help but think back to last year and get alllll emosh.  Matt and I were still healing from our miscarriage but we were so hopeful.  And you know what?  Georgia was alreaaaaaaaaady in my belly!  Unbeknownst to her mama as her mama happily sipped on lots of vino – but hey!  Maybe that’s why she’s such a mellow babe? 

But all this is simply to say I am grateful.  For the people in my life, for the experiences I’ve had and for a hopeful and bright future.  Each day continues to get better and better, and I simply don’t know how that is possible.  I still pinch myself that I get to be her mom.  Man, I’m lucky.  No not lucky – I’m blessed. 

Hope y’all had a great Thanksgiving too!

OMG she is perfect! She doesn't look like a baby anymore-- more like a little toddler. Don't blink momma, she will be walking before you know it! Xoxo
