Like her new trick? She isn’t quite able to pull herself all the way up yet – she is on her knees in this picture – but she’s getting VERY close. I should probably lower the mattress again in anticipation of this because she’s pretty top heavy. I had a big head too when I was her age.
What a face to wake up to every day though! I couldn’t love it more.
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. I can’t believe it. I feel like just yesterday my expanding belly and I were putting up our Christmas tree and I was thinking about how magical the season would be the next year when my little Bee was on the outside. And now she is and all I can think about is how the hell I’m going to keep her from eating all the ornaments and pulling said Christmas tree down on top of herself. Magical indeed.
I suspect I will be too busy chasing after her and stuffing my face with all the food substances to get online tomorrow and make one of those posts about what I’m so thankful for, so today I will say that I am thankful for my daughter. She may be a snotty, phlegmy, teething hot mess right now, but not a day goes by where I don’t look at her and my heart feels like it could just burst from the amount of love I have for her. I had some mom-xiety before she arrived, feeling a little unsure how she was going to fit into our lives, but she just did. It was seamless and now it feels like she’s always been here. It’s just like everyone said it would be, but better.
I hope that all of you have the most wonderful holiday ever. For once my husband doesn’t have to go to work tomorrow evening (!!!) so we will be celebrating, not only Betty’s first Thanksgiving, but our first Thanksgiving as a family. This also means I don’t have to drive. Which means I can drink wine. Bonus!
