Em was feeling much more social, and thus, more fun. I am equally thankful for them both, but I was very grateful to have a smiley little one to play with instead of Grumpy.
This is much more my style.
Well, even a grumpy toddler monster couldn't take away from the joy of family and conscious gratitude on a day like Thanksgiving. This time last year, Em was still a little bean in my belly. Now she's a roly-poly ball of fun. Jax was saying, "Cheers!" for the very first time and now he talks in full sentences (his latest favorite--"Move it!" What a peach). But through it all, I am forever thankful for our family, our health, our situation, our freedoms.
Our blessings are plentiful up here in Vermont. Our lives (and our bellies!) are full.
