Happy Thanksgiving to all! I thought I'd post a few things that I've been thankful for this past year...
1-Ellie Maxine, our beautiful miracle baby, she has brought more joy than I ever knew was possible!
2-Rachel, our sweet birthmother and friend. LOTS OF LOVE!!
3-Jeremy, for bring such an amazing husband, and working so hard for our family, he is the love of my life and my best friend.
4-My mom, she really stepped in to help when we we only had days to get ready fo Ellie and I was in a panic!
5-My sisters, for coming over and cleaning my house, and watching Ellie so I can lay down!
6-Sara, for coming from Ohio to see our baby and making me the CUTEST diaper bag and quilt for Ellie!
7-Our sweet neighbors and ward members who took such good care of us when Ellie came.
8-Our friends... we are so blessed with great friends!!! Enough said!! :)
10-Jeremy's job: you never realize how blessed you are until you have to go without it, 8 months of unemployment this year.... we are so GRATEFUL for our EMPLOYMENT!!
11-My sweet grandma BUB, losing her this year was one of the hardest times for me, but I am so grateful for her legacy and that my daughter can carry on her name.
13-My dog. Funny how attached infertile people get to their pets. Yes, I talk to her and she has been my baby for the past three years!! Hahahaha-- ok bring on the crazy pet lover comments!
14-My king size bed!
15-The Christmas season that is finally here!!!
Oh goodness, I have so much! Up until Ellie came into our family, this year was going down in our books as the worst year ever, but it's amazing how a tiny baby can turn everything around! Ellie has been so fun, I love being her mom. I understand now when people say that being a mom is the hardest yet the best thing you can do, I love it! Ellie is starting to coo and grin whenever she looks at us, and everytime it makes my heart melt. Oh how I love my baby girl!!!
