Plenty to be thankful for

The title is an obscure movie musical quote from my favorite of all time, Holiday Inn (also the movie for which White Christmas was written).

Today we celebrated with Strawberry’s family and Curly enjoyed himself thoroughly. He tried turkey for the first time and it was a big hit. It was our first “successful” baby-led weaning food and he actually swallowed a big chunk of it with no gagging. Tomorrow we’re celebrating with my family.

It’s a whole different experience celebrating holidays with a little one in tow. I feel very glad that we didn’t have to travel a great distance and that Curly’s routine wasn’t disturbed much thanks to naps in the Pack n Play. But oh my goodness, the amount of STUFF we have to schlep everywhere!

But we’re so thankful for it, and for a healthy, happy son…supportive family on both sides…the ability to live within our means…and for each other. We wish you all this kind of Thanksgiving, even if you may have to wait a little longer for it.
