How To Eat Mashed Potatoes

Besides learning how to eat mashed potatoes during thanksgiving dinner, we have so much to be thankful for this year. It goes without saying that we are beyond thankful for our baby boy. He has turned our light of life up high and bright since the moment we learned of his existence.

So I won't get all mushy gushy on how much I love my baby boy- this whole blog is dedicated to doing that. Instead, I want to point out three "in between times" I am thankful for, that if I don't note now, I may forget ten years down the road.

I am so thankful for baby noises. His babbling makes me think that he has so much to tell me. He talks with so much enthusiasm too. I think we are going to have quite the gabber. My favorite baby noises are his belly laughs. You could combine all the wonderful noises in the world and they wouldn't compare to the deep belly Briggy laughs.

I am thankful for the indescribable bond with my son. He is a very social little bug, but when mommy is around, he would prefer to be in her arms only. I will never take this for granted  especially on the days I have been working countless hours and worry that he is going to forget me- then when I see him, he ALWAYS reassures me of the mutual love we share.

I am thankful for my partner in this parenting experience who is willing to lower a crib to the lowest setting in the middle of the night because I catch our crazy monkey on the video monitor gathering the blankets in a pile to step on so he can try climbing out of his crib. Ryan and I may not always know the right answers- but we try our best to be patient with each other in our first experience with parenting. He is my teammate, my best friend and rock.

What an unbelievable year. We are truly blessed.

From our family to yours....
