Emmett started out his Thanksgiving by opening a few birthday presents from us and from Nana & Poppy and playing with new toys. We had a very relaxing morning playing and watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Emmett took a good nap and then we went to Auntie Patty and Uncle Will's house for our big meal.

We had lots of playtime and catching up time with grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins, and ate ourselves silly with all the yummy food. It was a good and happy way to spend the day.

When we got back to my parents' house, Emmett had a bath and settled into his jammies. Mike built a fire and we cozied up in the living room. Emmett was totally enthralled by the fire, and kept saying "light" over and over in awe.

He's in bed now, and the rest of us are curled up on couches, watching a movie and getting ready to eat steaks being cooked in the fireplace.

I am thankful for Emmett's first Thanksgiving spent with us and family instead of in the NICU waiting for test results. I am thankful those tests eventually were negative and he is perfect, healthy and thriving. I am thankful for every hug and kiss. I am thankful for this day.

that whole day sounds perfect. We had fun here, too, but I wish I could have shared it with you all.
