Aryn's 1st Thanksgiving!

I have much to be thankful for this year. The number 1 reason: Aryn. She has changed our lives so much in the last 4 weeks, we can't even imagine what life would be like without her! Although, I must admit - I'm sure Bauer would like to see life pre-Aryn again hahaha

We made our first over night trip to the farm for Thanksgiving this past weekend. We left Friday night for a 2-night stay away from home. I have to admit I was a little nervous since I know how miss Aryn is at night and I didn't want to be a bother to anyone and I was so scared we'd forget something at home. Thankfully, everything went off without a hitch. She didn't sleep too well Friday or Saturday nights, but I'm chalking that up to a weekend growth spurt (she ate literally every hour the whole weekend!!!) and a colder-than-she's-used-to basement.

I gotta tell you... I am still constantly "surprised" at how amazing Ryan is. I go into the other room to feed Aryn - and Ryan comes in to see how we're doing, to hang out, to bring me food or water. I find I fall in love with him all over again every hour we're together lately.

See what I mean?

Aryn got to hang out with Grandma and Grandpa Geremia, her aunties Karrie and Jamie, uncle Roger (who she met for the first time this weekend!), cousins Veronica and Joey and she even got to meet Great Grandma Verna!!

We came back on Sunday and on Monday we had our 2nd Thanksgiving meal at my parents place. It's much easier to pack up to go 2 blocks away than it is 2 hours away haha!!

I am so grateful and thankful for everything we've been blessed with this year - a cold summer while I was super pregnant (suckers!), an amazing husband, an awesome dog, a great family and a beautiful baby girl. Aryn, I can't wait to spend so many other Thanksgivings with you!!! I will forever be thankful for you!
