Shirt: Figure 8
This time last year we were just praying for a baby and this year God not only gave us A baby but he gave us our Theodore, perfectly designed for us and we’re perfectly designed for him. I couldn’t imagine anything to be more thankful for than that.
Last year at Thanksgiving I wrote this post about how much I adore the amazing ladies in my life and it still holds so true! I am so blessed to have the very best, most beautiful (inside and out) friends and sisters! I’d love to start writing a special “thankful” post each year, so that I can go back and see what was held the most special to me throughout the years as they go. Here is my list for 2016:
-Blake and his desire and ability to provide for us. He is such a great dad, it overflows my heart watching him with Theodore
-When Blake gets home from work late, if Theodore’s already asleep, the way he’ll lean into the bassinet to kiss him good night
-Theodore and his precious smiles. I literally love him to pieces in every single way. There’s not a cry he could make that would take an ounce of my love away.
-The way Theodore smiles when he sees Blake, there is nothing better
-Date nights with my love, even if that is ice cream and a movie at home after Teddy’s asleep
-My family, on both sides, and how much they care for us and for Teddy
-Our home, I pray that it is always warm and welcoming
-Getting to stay home with Teddy, it is a blessing
-Katie, my sister, best friend, and the only family member who lives out of town, coming to visit in three short weeks and stay with her baby for a month!!
-Good health for our family
-Beautiful music to listen to every day
-Social media to share all of our experiences and enjoy the experiences of those we care about
-Church and our faith
-Friends and the happiness they brings us
We are so blessed in so many ways, and I am truly grateful for so much in our lives! In fact, it is hard to think of anything negative after soaking up and writing out the things I am thankful for.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you! What are you most thankful for this year?
