A Week of Thanksgiving: My Son

Yesterday was Oscar’s very first Thanksgiving. We spent the day with family and played and took naps and took lots of pictures. He ate turkey and stuffing, scoffed at mashed potatoes and cranberries and gobbled up pumpkin pie. He played ball (and said ball) and watched Daddy play rough with the big kids. Everyone commented on how happy he is. And it’s so true! We couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful child.
Oscar is very good natured and we are certainly thankful for that! But more than anything we love who he is. The child that God created for us. At 10 months old he is already very much his own person. They say that once you have kids you don’t remember life without them. I can see how there is some truth to that statement. Being a mother is constantly changing me. It points out the parts of me that are completely selfish. Motherhood is the hardest and most rewarding job I have ever had. I love my baby boy! I know that I am learning more about love than I ever though possible and how I would do anything for my family. For my child. Oscar makes me laugh every day. Watching him learn and grow has been one of the greatest joys of my life. I am truly blessed and SO thankful!

I keep forgetting to ask- did the box arrive for you for the santa swap? I sent it early last week, so hopefully it'll be arriving soon if it hasn't already!
