Happy Thanksgiving!

This week is Thanksgiving. Our first with darling Izzy, and Christmas is just a month away. We put up the tree right after Halloween and Izzy was completely terrified of it but day by day she is getting better about it. She loves to crawl/scoot over to it and play with the snowflake decorations on the tree skirt. Also, Granny made us ornaments last year and Izzy adores the little reef made out of bobby pins. It will not be long until she is running around the house.

Last week, I made her Great Strides Montage (see below). I was looking through all the newborn pictures trying to pick one and I just cannot believe how big she is getting. She is just absolutely amazing. I remember just 8 short months ago I had not even met her and now if I have to go more than a day without her, I get so depressed. Don't get me wrong, kids are hard. Especially CF kids, but I wouldn't trade Izzy for anything. So on that note, I thought I would write a short list (as in not all inclusive) of everything I'm thankful for because I really do have SO much to be thankful for this year.

I am thankful:
-for my beautiful baby girl born safely 03/15/2008
-for not being in the hospital right now for any of my friends or family
-for clear throat cultures for Izzy
-for good sounding lungs and weight gained for Izzy
-for developmental milestones for Izzy
-for a beautiful home
-for a loving and honest husband
-for a stable, good career
-for supportive family
-for a wonderful caregiver for my daughter
-for food in my belly (big though it may be)
-for all my friends in real life and online
-for money to pay the bills and a little extra to give gifts
-for the ability to bless others
-for my 5 years with Precious- she was a great cat, and
-most of all, for hope for the future.

We love you all and will post more pictures and video soon! Please be safe and happy this holiday while you see your family and remember for all that you have to be thankful!

Izzy is Grooving

Izzy scratched her eye. It was so sad (for me).

She finally has some hair!

Here are some more snail pictures:

Izzy is super snuggly.

She is just getting so big!

Izzy loves the camera.

Check on the cute pink leg warmers:

Izzy loves her toys!

Oh hi, up there!

Izzy is really starting to get around well on her own.

Here is Izzy playing Hide and Seek with me:

We have pictures scheduled for next weekend! Hope everyone has nice holiday plans!
