Today We Are Thankful…

posted by Andrea | 11/22/2012

Today we are thankful for 10 tiny fingers

and 10 wiggly toes.

For two BIG blue eyes

and a cute button nose.

Today we are thankful for piles of laundry

and exhausting “food fights”.

For stinky, dirty diapers

and oh, SO MANY sleepless nights.

Today we are thankful for headbands, hair clips,

and girly accessories.

For drawers full of pink, purple,

and polka-dot onesies.

Today we are thankful for smiles and coos,

for giggles and laughs.

For bedtime routines,

and even for baths!

Today we are thankful for the gift of a year;

We are so blessed to have Nora here.

Today, among SO many other things, we are thankful for our sweet little girl!

Happy Thanksgiving, Friends!

AND

Happy FIRST Birthday, Nora Faith!

    This is such a cute poem! I love it!!! It’s so nice going back to it after 1 year, noticing how much she has changed, yet – so many features are the same and even more pronounced…
    You are doing such a great job recording it all.
    One day, when I’ll have babies, I’ll try to follow your example. Until then, I enjoy so much your posts about Nora, and I try to use some of the tips for my nieces and nephews. Thank you!
