Celebrating Baby’s First Thanksgiving

My great-nephew was the star of our Thanksgiving, providing endless entertainment.

His bright smile lights up your heart when it beams on you. When he glares at you with a “grumpy cat” face, you know it won’t last. His eyes grow wide and bright with wonder at simple joys- watching a silly toy dog that spins, hearing his daddy’s voice in the next room, peering past everyone and everything else to smile at his mommy, playing with an empty cup. His happy laugh and squeaks and squeals make everyone join in with big smiles and laughter, too.


How blessed a family is to share special days with a baby in the midst of it all.

    That first baby is always the show stealer. What fun to enjoy this new life! After the weddings, I hope babies will be coming soon.

  7. I have fully exited the baby phase as a mother, and I am appreciating the joy that a new baby does bring. We also enjoyed meeting some new babies over the weekend! Thanks for sharing the picture!
