Happy Thanksgiving

 This year, my world has been turned around (for the better!) and I am so incredibly thankful for the beautiful little girl that is smiling while sleeping in her little bouncer chair next to me.

I like to have my picture taken, especially when you get my good side

My husband and I have said so many times throughout my pregnancy how we can't believe that you can love someone so much and not have even met them yet. She is here now and we are still saying the same thing (obviously we've met her). We can't quit putting everything else in life aside just to hold her, watch her make little adorable faces, kiss her, and snuggle her as much as possible. It's been a whirlwind of a week, but it's been so much fun to see our little family grow and adjust to this little 7 pound bundle of joy.
I'm ready for my turkey dinner!
 Other things that I'm thankful for this year:
-that the weather is beautiful and my brother and his family and my dad are able to travel safely 8 and a half hours to come to the cities for Thanksgiving
-that Bailey decided breastfeeding isn't so bad and has made an incredible turnaround from the first day. It was extremely stressful for the whole family, but she's feeding like a champ now :)
-that Oscar and Kirby love their baby sister and are so good around her
-for the amazing friends and family that have more than spoiled us in the last week. We've had lots of visitors, food, gifts and love brought to our home
-that my family, friends, fur babies and myself are in good health
-that I am not in the hospital over Thanksgiving (seriously one of the biggest fears I had about having a due date so close to Thanksgiving!)
-my job, home, and all of the luxuries that I am able to enjoy
-to have made great connections with fellow MN Bloggers. I love following their blogs and being able to relate to so many of them on differing levels
-to be leaving in minutes to go enjoy some amazing food, family and relaxation time!

I'm so precious!

I hope all of you have a great weekend doing whatever you're doing! I have so many things I want/need to blog about, but I just haven't had a chance to get it written. I hope next week I can get these thoughts and stories into this blog!
