I had taken a pregnancy test that evening that had confirmed my crummy feelings the day before during the Turkey Trot and my lack of Thanksgiving Day appetite.
Now one year later those 2 little pink lines is a smiling baby boy. I did the Turkey Trot again this year, but only a 1 mile VS 5, and instead of a baby growing in my belly, he was with me in his stroller ( next year I hope we can do the 5 mile together with the jogging stroller)!
He was such a good boy! He never cried the whole trip to downtown or during the walk! I was so proud of him! It was his first trip downtown!
This was only Jared's second Trot, but out FIRST family event!
We had even more to be thankful for this year. Thanksgiving of 2010 changed our lives forever, and for the rest of my life Thanksgiving will have even more meaning to me.
Now the Christmas season is starting, and I can't believe we have a son. I am now going to be one of those parents waiting in line for his FIRST Santa picture, and many Santa pictures to come in years. This will be our last "cheap" Christmas.
I am also reminded of something my Mama wrote in my baby book for my first Christmas: She wrote " You make Christmas fun again." I think I know even more now what exactly she meant when she wrote those words.
