I've been trying to come up with something each day this month that I'm thankful for. And yesterday, on Aidan's 11 "month-day," I said: Today I'm thankful that 11 months ago, I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy. And that he fulfilled my two wishes for that pregnancy. 1. Term. 2. That he choose his birthday. And I am still thankful for that. And so much more. Even when he throws a tantrum because he doesn't have the ONE thing he wants the most. When he has many other items right in front of him that would fulfill his need. Even when he kicks his legs and screams in frustration because his sister gets to do something he can't yet. Even when chomps down on my leg because he's teething. Again. I am thankful for him. And all that he is. I have been blessed with two very strong personalities. It will not be a boring time in this household for the next 18 years.

Yesterday while working on dinner, we set Elisa up with her whiteboard and marker. She loves to color, draw, any of that. Andrew sat down in his chair and I turned around to open up some more of the items needed. When I looked back over at her, I saw this.

Going purple for prematurity! November is prematurity awareness month and I'm so thankful for the health of my preemie. Three years ago we were just beginning our journey. And while the journey doesn't truly end, I love where we are now.
