First Thanksgiving

I am thankful for cute striped tights that are on sale...

an adorable onesie from a dear friend...

a matching hat from a Halloween costume....

But most of all, I'm thankful for the little girl who wears all of those things so proudly this Thanksgiving day.

Her very first Thanksgiving.

I asked her what she was most thankful for

and she had so many things that came to mind that she had to think long and hard about which one she was most thankful for.

There's being alive, for one. Her family, for another. Her warm nursery was a thought. Those striped tights took some consideration (they're a little big, and she so enjoys pulling the feet off to dangle)....

But all was revealed in Baby's First Prayer:
"Please God, let there be puffs at Thanksgiving dinner. Amen."

Here she is with a Thanksgiving message for you:

Head over to Lily's Momma's blog: to check out the compilation of blogs that she featured today. Which reminds me...

of course, I am so thankful for all of you as well! Thank you for helping this new Mom make it through almost ten months so far....

Happy Thanksgiving!
