to create for us this Thanksgiving Day".
has always been a day that I have reflected upon what I am thankful
for. After spending the last three days listening to my kindergartners
share what they are thankful for--family, toys, video games, the pool,
god and of course, most importantly Santa (?)--I decided to make sure
that I shared what I am thankful on this first LM Thanksgiving.
am thankful for LM--a blessing greater than we could've imagined.
Watching him grow, change, learn and just in general love life, is
something more special than I could've ever imagined.
am thankful for TH--who is an AMAZING father and gets up with LM,
changes his diaper and brings him to snuggle with me in bed on mornings
he knows that I am exhausted or (like this morning) wake up with a

I am thankful that I have a job that I love (most
of the time!) and is secure. I have colleagues who inspire me and look

I am thankful for family--so much of it that it is overwhelming sometimes.
I am thankful for the Moms I have met in this journey---you teach me and save my sanity.
I am thankful we have a home and a safe place to live--I realize not everyone has this luxury.
I am thankful that I have this space to share my thoughts, ideas and experiences...and receive back such amazing support!
