Month of thankfulness...

1. I am thankful. I have so many blessings. I am going to numerate them for the month of November. I missed yesterday, because I had a (chocolate) hangover, so I will proceed to catch up:

1. I will go ahead and start by being thankful for Ian. My baby. It was his birthday on Halloween, so it seems a fitting place to start. He's such a cool kid. Every single day I feel blessed to be his mom. He is super funny, and makes us all laugh constantly. If you ask him about his talents, he'll tell you, "I'm funny!" He is also very affectionate. He LOVES to hug and kiss a lot. Sometimes to the point of awkwardness in public. I often feel like Ian is a lot like my dad. There is a strong correlation between them in my heart. Their lives on this earth only overlapped for about 18 months, but I feel like Ian was a special gift from God to fill my heart in my father's absence. He has my dad's height, his sense humor, and his awesome thick, wavy hair. He also has the gift of being able to make all the world's problems go away just by giving you a big, bear hug, (which, coincidentally was one of my favorite things about my dad).

I love that, because Ian is the youngest, I get to spend so much time with him. He is so much fun and makes me want to be a better person. I really believe that he will always make this world a better place by being in it. Who would've guessed that such a miserable pregnancy would've turned into such an amazing gift!?.
