THANKSgiving...



Wow, we have so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving!!! A healthy Reed, a healthy Papa, wonderful recent memories of DD and her sweet girlies, and friends and family that we feel so blessed to have!!!

Here's what has been going on with us...
Reed had his follow up appointment with the gastro docs today and they were so glad of his growth! In one month he has grown in length and in weight - more than they had expected! YEAH! He is now crawling and pulling up on anything and everything. I think seeing Sara Kate doing all that fun stuff made him think he could do it too!!! No fun just sitting around being still! :-) We are so blessed that the doctor's were able to find the issue and that this medicine is working so very well...

Wanted to share with you a few more pictures... this picture is of Lauren Clay and Riley watching the fishies. They are both doing something funny with their mouths, but it's still a cute picture. I didn't take a picture of that cute Ty - what was I thinking??? Shannon and John are doing so great as parents, the second time around!


And this beautiful thing is the turkey that Riley made for his dad today. Had the great idea of using dryer sheets to make the feathers of the turkey - and if you are wondering what that colored blue mark is on the face of the turkey - well, it's food just in case the turkey gets hungry. Oh, the imagination of a 3 year old!



That's it from here. We pray you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving... Let us know what you are thankful for this season :-).

With Reed's little face starting to fill out, I think he is looking like Riley! What do you think Melanie? No matter who he looks like, he is adorable. I'm so glad things are going better for you all. Hope you had a very Happy Thanksgiving.
