So Thanksgiving was great with family from both sides! My mom and dad came in town for the weekend and it was filled with its usual easiness. I don't say that lightly as I know there are lots of folks that hanging with your parents isn't easy...it is with mine and we are both so thankful. Jason and my dad rewired one of the cable lines so we didn't have a cord across the floor anymore with our new crawler...mom and I decorated for Christmas...we made baby food, they sent us out on a date and in true dad fashion he slipped Jake some money on the way out the door. We are thankful. In equal fashion we are thankful for Jason's family. We had a terrific time over at his Aunt and Uncle's house. Kids crawling around and darn good food! We are thankful for family.
I am thankful for a husband who loves me and truly "gets" me. I am thankful for a daughter who trusts me, and warms my heart with her smiles, her giggles, and how she reaches out for us now. I am thankful that I know that with out a Saviour I am nothing. I am thankful that with uncertainty I know my Saviour is certain. I am thankful.
Enjoy the pics...gotta love the one with a red mouth...she has just tried raspberries for the first time!

I love watching her. Every aspect I believe, her discoveries, her joys, even her pain watching her reminds me that I am thankful of the knowledge of a Saviour who watches me too and allows me to discover.
I have been watching her "getting ready to crawl" for almost a month now...she is so stinkin' close, and can make headway...does the army action...but to watch her stare at a toy or us and just rock back and forth waiting for the courage to go. Once she does her world will change, for the better, I know this b/c I know the other side of crawling...walking, running, dancing, leaping...but to her it is a risk right now to crawl. Oh how I am like my daughter. Sometimes risk looks so daunting that to take that first movement towards the other side almost cripples me into never moving, never daring that there are other possibilities, adventures that await...oh to learn to crawl...

The Tar Heels had their first scrimmage of the season...so our girl had to put on her "garb" don't ya know! Then the other pics are two that represent some of my favorite views of Caroline. She and I go walking most days and her lounging in her stroller is just one of the best sites there is.
Currently CDH is saying "mama" "baba"...not sure that the mama is in relation to me yet...but she is making those sounds. She has also successfully put two back to back knee crawls...and maybe just maybe yesterday she signed "All done" in her high chair at dinner. I don't know if that is really possible for her to be signing back yet...but I think it happened!!
I haven't said it in awhile...I love being a mom!
