We have so much to be thankful for. It's crazy that last Thanksgiving our sweet love wasn't even a thought, and this year… here she is!

Uncle Mitch came in town for the holiday. It's the first time he's seen Aiden since she was three days old… quite a difference! We went to dinner with his girlfriend's family on Monday night, and they were great!

All decked out for Aunt Kelsey's birthday!

We celebrated at Tea Leaves and Thyme which was adorable and delicious.

Gigi came in town!

We were so sad that we couldn't spend Kelsey's birthday with the Causeys, because Jude was working through his first stomach bug. Poor little guy! Luckily, Aiden had lots of smiles for Aunt Kelsey to cheer her up.

It was so beautiful out on Thanksgiving, so we went for a little family walk to kick off the day. (It was also Ruthie's 5th birthday! But our poor pups are so neglected these days, we didn't even celebrate. Oops.)

I contributed Roasted Garlic Asparagus with Feta to this year's Thanksgiving feast. It was delicious, but I think the first batch I made the weekend before was better.

I am thankful for our new family of three this year.

Evening chats with Gigi and Aunt Kelsey. Sadly the Causeys couldn't make it to Thanksgiving either, because Jude got sick again and Nathan also caught the bug. We were so sad and missed them so much!


On Friday, we headed out to get our Christmas Tree… even though it was about 75 degrees. Of course, this also called for a photo op with the cutest babe of all.

Play time with Aunt Meagan!

Gigi and her Atlanta Greats

She is so close to rolling over! Technically, she did roll over once tonight (Nov 28), but we're not really counting it.

She still sleeps in the bed with us (which I love), but we really need to get her on more of a schedule… and unfortunately Adam and I can't go to sleep at 8pm every night. Nonna bought her this Merlin Sleep Suit as an early Christmas present, and she looks absolutely ridiculous in it! Kind of like the kid from A Christmas Story. However, it seems to be working. It's supposed to help keep her from waking herself up by muffling any startles while she's sleeping, and keeping her secure without being swaddled (which she's never liked). Night one, we got her to sleep right away and she stayed asleep in her crib for the first time! But she woke up about 5 minutes later when her paci fell out. Night two, she once again stayed asleep in her crib and stayed asleep for a solid 20 minutes before she woke up. Progress!

That's a strange way to end this post, so let's end it with this cute picture of my two favorites. Thankful is an understatement.

  1. so cute!! this is hysterical, btw: "She found her hands! It's mesmerizing to watch her figure them out. My favorite is when she's concentrating really hard to get her fist in her mouth, and then she misses and hits herself in the face."

    I love that you are capturing everything as she grows up!
