It was a good Thanksgiving. My mom cooked and we hosted 10 people, family and extended family. My sister flew in from the east coast. Nolan even took part in dinner by eating mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes and green beans. Go Nolan! It was the first holiday for my brother, J, without his wife, they are separated. But my niece and nephews were able to celebrate with us AND their mother's family since they are getting together this weekend.
I was so busy yesterday that I did not text, email or even post on facebook wishing a Happy Thanksgiving - that is really unusual for me.
But I did have time to sit down on the floor of Nolan's bedroom while he was napping and cry. I was looking at Eli's footprints yesterday and he had the exact same toes as Nolan. They each have/had a strange, kind of bent 2nd toe on both sides. When I become aware of things like that I wonder just how similar or different they may have been. I know it is no good to go down that road but sometimes I just don't want to stop myself....
I know I have so much to be thankful for and right now my biggest thanks is sleeping in his crib looking sweet and adorable in his little monkey blanket sleeper.
This is a day late but better late than never - I hope.
