We had a nice Thanksgiving Day celebration as usual. It was special because it’s my baby’s first Thanksgiving. She had a great time playing with her cousins and she enjoyed the attention the family is giving her. Now that my baby girl is walking (she started walking at nine months), she’s all over the place.
My husband woke me up very early Thursday morning to finish getting ready. When everything was ready and loaded in the car – our travel and diaper bags, Pack & Play pen, booster chair, infant bath tub, baby foods, and vanity bag – I gently took my baby from the crib, dress her up and put her in the car seat. When we travel with baby, I make sure that her things are the priority. I am glad she did not throw a fuss in the car. Because usually babies will get fussy if they’re disturbed in their sleep. It was a cool foggy morning when we hit the road to Whitehouse, Texas. We left 15 minutes passed 8 A.M. so we can be there before noon. Guess what, my baby did not go back to sleep the whole trip and refused to nap. She got irritable that evening.
At the dinner table, we said our thanks for God’s blessings given to us. I thank God for the safe, successful delivery and for giving us a healthy, beautiful baby girl.
