Thankful... so thankful.

I'm very thankful for this sweet baby right here. My life has been enhanced so much this year and I can't tell you how in love I am still. You'd think we had just brought her home yesterday or something. Every day is a new experience for her and I'm so thankful that I get to share that with her and Nic. My family is my world and I am so humbled that they are here with me. I don't deserve them, they are way too special. I'm thankful for those beaming eyes and sweet little cheeks... don't even get me started on that smile.
I'm thankful for my mobile little girl, who I get to hug and kiss every day.
Liara is thankful that Ella let her borrow her butterfly rocker and those cute Minnie Mouse pj's...
Here's Liara and I on Guy Fawkes day... note the fireworks behind us.

I'm so thankful for my little family this year. For my husband, who supports me and is my best friend. For my daughter, who fills my days with laughter and melts my heart with every smile. I may complain a lot about our current living situation, but I'm thankful that we are together and healthy and for the most part, happy. I am so very thankful that we've been blessed with an intelligent, healthy, beautiful, and spirited little girl. I may not be spending Thanksgiving with the majority of my family this year, but I'm spending it with the people who matter most to me, and that's good enough!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. We love you and hope you are celebrating this day with a thankful heart too!

Happy Thanksgiving, Jen! I love this post, and feel the exact same.

And, I'm thankful to have lovely mommy friends (aka you!) around for support and advice and to remind me what really matters :)

Hope you had a lovely day!
