Happy Thanksgiving! May your day be full of food, family and friends. This year I'm grateful for my family, friends and readers. I'm also very grateful that I am NOT in labor during Thanksgiving Dinner because that means I'll be able to enjoy all the delicious trimmings. I am also grateful to have made it through my daughter's first year (her birthday is in two short days). I've learned so much and have had soooo much fun!
Here are some photos from yesterday's day of Thanksgiving Prep. Now it is time to go and finish making the Turkey!

This is the month you began walking and it is awesome! You love walking everywhere and have pretty much stopped crawling. It also means that I really had to step up my baby proofing game as you like to roam the house, inspecting and throwing things as you go. Toddlers are messy!
We visited the pumpkin patch with your friend, Ruby and I think next year, you are going to LOVE it. You enjoyed yourself this year but really you just like hanging out with me and Pop Pop so since we were there, you were thrilled!
We also visited the Zoo for their trick or treating event where they fed the animals pumpkins. You wore your Thing 1 costume which was awesome thanks to Mommy's friend, Danielle. Her son, Henry was Thing 2, way over on the east coast. Bi-coastal Things!
You got a lot of teeth this month! You now have seven teeth and are working on a full set. Getting teeth is a bit hard on you and understandably so! I'd be cranky too.
I'm in shock that in just under a month that you will be one year old. Your Dad and I have managed to take really good care of you for almost a year! And in that year, you have grown from being a wee little babe who just laid there to this energetic person that charms people with a smile. You are quite the charmer too! You love waving at people with your pageant wave and pointing to express your desires. It's adorable!
We can't wait to celebrate your 1st birthday with you. Momma has gone a little bit overboard but you have an overachiever for a Mother so you'll just need to get used to it.
