I'm thankful for my family! Quade, our son who happens to have Down Syndrome, has given us so much joy this last year.

Race Bannon said...

...maybe she was crying because of the giraffe-sweater?

...I'm just sayin'

Megan said...

Oh man are we feeling your teething pain right now too! It's no fun seeing them hurt.

Right now I am SO thankful that besides teething and crawling into EVERYTHING he can run his head into my sweet little 34 weeker is so big and healthy!

I'll tell you what I am thankful for: 1 wonderful, loving, self-sacrificing husband of 45 years, 3 wonderful, loving children who have grown up to be even more loving and devoted to family (self-sacrificing), 1 wonderful, loving, self-sacrificing SIL, 1 wonderful, loving and self-sacrificing DIL and last but not least 19 WONDERFUL, HANDSOME, BEAUTIFUL, CARING, LOVING GRANDchildren.

Dad and I are so proud of our loving family, each and everyone of you, no exceptions!

Thank goodness most of you live quite a distance from us. ;>)
;>) ;>) ;>) Just kidding! I miss you all so much but I am sure God planned for our family to be separated by miles...so they could be a wonderful example to others as to what true family love is and to keep me glued to my laptop anxiously awaiting your blogs. Luckily we have one daughter and 3 granddaughters close by to hug and kiss, and to watch grow up in person.

Love forever and ever, Grammi n Papa

Hey my word identification is one of my favorite for my grandbabies "chicizi" well, OK I usually call them "chickadee." Close but no cigar.

Elissa said...

Aw Miss Lily crying makes me sad. Abbie is getting a tooth too, so what I am thankful for is that teeth eventually come in! He he he. I am also thankful for an amazing and loving family that love without conditions, accept without question, and always support each other no matter what!

Sarah said...

We are teething, too!! and, I loved the 10 months post, especially the pics and descriptions of the way the siblings love on Lily. what a sweet family y'all are!!! :)

Katy said...

Oh poor, sweet Lily. I love that pic with those bright eyes, though! I just wrote a whole post about what I am thankful for, does that count??? ;-) Let's see... today I am thankful for a "lazy" day at home where I can just take care of my boys (one sickie) and clean house.

Katy said...

I shared your giveaway on FB! :-)

Lynn said...

Thanks to my friend Katy, I discovered your blog today. What a beautiful baby and family you have. I am thankful for the time I have had off of work with my new addition. I have to go back on Monday to teach other children that I am thankful to have in my life, many of whom may not have much to be thankful for. I leave my own family in the good hands of my mother while I am away, but I know that every moment away from them is worth it because I am helping others learn.

Elisabeth said...

Ooh, I love the owl hat! I am thankful that Wesley is learning how to stack legos.

The Kozee Family said...

I am thankful for my girls, Grace and Lily. My Lily is 7 months old and sucks her left thumb, just like your Lily.

I am thankful for my husband and that he has a job (he was laid off in 2009 and unemployed for 6 months, 12 months in his trained profession) and we have a home to live in (we had to sell everything we owned after he got laid off to pay for COBRA - pre-existing heart condition in Grace and myself, then found out I was pregnant with Lily, and had to stay with family until he found another job, which is not easy in this economy - even with a Master's degree!). And I'm thankful that, despite having a CCAM (tumor) in her lung, my Lily is doing great and won't have to have surgery until after she turns one!!!

Wren said...

I'm so sorry Lily is having such a tough time with those teeth...I feel your pain...well, Sutter does! Here's hoping we all get some relief soon....I'm thankful for Motrin! LOL

Kaetlyn said...

Oh Lily...we feel your pain...I think Kaetlyn is teething too...BUT...we are thankful for those teeth, which will one day shine for the whole world to see when she smiles, just like you! Big hugs to you! :)

~Kaetlyn's Mommy, Kelly :)

Brown Eyed Mama said...

Oh, Lily! That picture of her crying is breaking my heart! I hope those teeth hurry up and break through soon, that girl needs a break.

Today I am thankful, really thankful, for the school my older children go to. I was so worried when I realized homeschooling wasn't going to be an option for us, but every time I've had to go to the school for a party, or a function, I am just blown away by how much my girls' teachers care about their classroom kids.

Nikki said...

sterlingplustwo said...

nicole said...

Awww Lily, those teeth hurt but they'll help you chew that lasagna better. Sometimes my kids liked a wet washcloth when they were teething.

I am thankful for this season of life I'm in right now where all my children still live under one roof with us.

God Bless!

kkronbeck said...

You have ONE beautiful family!!! My sister was diagnosed with Rett Syndrome so I somewhat understand what you are feeling. Your daughter is so beautiful and I wish you and your family the best of luck!!!!!

Callie said...

I am thankful for my family and friends and a god above who loves me.

I am also thankful for families like yours who love their special children and do us all a favor by opening their hearts and sharing their special little ones with all of us so that we can fall in love with them too. You do the world a great service by sharing sweet Lily. One day people will know that all children are lambs of god--to be loved and cherished--no matter how many chromosomes they have or what is written in their dna.

Thank you for your beautiful blog and thank for you a chance to win one of these cute hats!

Cathy said...

I'm thankful for so many things! However, I'm most thankful for the blessed assurance that I will be spending eternity with my Lord! What joy and comfort that gives.

Brunner Family said...

I am thankful that my parents get to come see us in just two weeks!!! We miss them so much! YAY!! Those little monkey hats are too cute. And I am SOOO empathizing with the teething thing. Laura will be one on Thanksgiving and she only has 1 tooth (she got a couple weeks ago) and has been working HARD all week on another one (my house shows it! augh!) :) Sweet pics of Lily :)

eestarn said...

I am thankful that God blessed me with a beautiful baby boy after many years of heartache!

Lori said...

Gosh, I have so many things to be thankful for, but right at this moment I am snuggling my beautiful 9 month old little girl - my only one out of six - and I am so thankful I was able to have one more and experience a girl. And...that she has a bestest cousin and friend in Lily - who by the way looks exactly like Elli in the picture of Lily sucking her thumb in the giraffe shirt in your new post!! CRAZY!!

Mandi said...

I'm so sorry Lily is teething. My Kindi is too and it is a miserable time! Often the only thing that will calm her down is to sit outside on the covered patio and swing with her. I hope Lily's pop through soon and she can be pain free!

I am thankful that I have two healthy children and that God gave me the added bonus of one of each. :) My son is almost two and we are thankful for his boundless energy and the joy it brings to us. Our daughter is 7 months and I am thankful for having a little girl to dress up and dress up with!

Danielle said...

o my 36 comments! first of all... that red had is THE CUTEST THING I have ever seen Lily in!! hands down. She needs her own Christmas card/picture! we see you guys every day! let's just have a lily card! (wait.. .might make your other kids a tad bit jealous!)

Anyways... !I am thankful for my family and friendships and this Holiday season!!! and lots more that would take up too much space! love you Patti!

cathy said...

I am thankful for my 3 wonderful sons and EVEN the special issues two of them have because that is what makes them special. Also I am thankful for people like you who are not afraid to be honest....much love

teal915 said...

ok, could those hats be any cuter? I don't think so. It's hard to pick one thing I'm thankful for, because there is something everywhere I look. But I'm thankful for peace, a peace that passes understanding. That no matter what storm rages, there's peace in this boat. Happy Thanksgiving!

Shauna said...

Right now I am so thankful that my sweet baby has stopped losing weight! And for my midwife who helped me figure out how to help her without giving up on nursing!

Meghann said...

I am thankful for my wonderful husband who goes to work every day to protect the people in his city. He is a wonderful man to myself & our daughter... I don't know what I would do without him. Mushy, I know... but oh, so true! :) Tis the season, right?

Melissa M said...

I'm bummed I missed your giveaway. That's what I get for being behind on blog reading!

I hope Lily's tooth comes through soon. Claire's been a bit grumpy lately, so I keep checking her for teeth too.
