This year we have SO much to be thankful for!  The two top things on the list are my little ones!

Kellen keeps me laughing daily!  He is so much fun right now...I wish that there was some magic spell to put him under to keep him this age forever!  The things that come out of his mouth makes me laugh all day!  We have our struggles with him, but most of the time it can be fixed with food or sleep!  Ha!  He takes after his mama!

Then there is Little Miss Quinn!  We are are so thankful for a healthy pregnancy so far and that she continues to grow and grow!  She is a mover too...I think that the bigger that she get the less room she has and the more stretching she does...when I sit down she almost rebels and pushes back!

I have had a couple of Dr's appointments and all is good!  I got to see the midwife this week (my Dr was out for the day)....she felt what position Quinn was in and estimates her to be about 4 1/2 to 5 lbs...which I guess is pretty average!  We go for an ultrasound next week to check in on her so it will be interesting to see what they say!  I think the midwife was trying to talk me out of a c-section in her own sneaky way...I wanted to tell her to save her breath!  My biggest fear in going that route is to go into labor and be in labor for hours only to find that she is too BIG for me to push out and end up in a c-section anyways!  I know what a c-section is all about...I know it is major surgery...I know the healing time is supposed to be longer than the natural way!  I promise anyone that has any doubts about my (and Matt's) decision that I have thought it through and this is what I want!  I don't feel like I am being robbed of any special moment because I don't push out my babies!  That is a little bit of a sore subject with me...can you tell???  We decided to take a tour of the hospital again since we will be giving birth at a different hospital than we did with Kellen.  I can't say if it was a good thing or a bad thing!  The hospital is great and the NICU is wonderful (if Quinn needs to go there).  The hospital is a great choice if you want to go the natural way...they have the lowest c-section rate in the South East and they are very proud of that fact!  So me coming in with a scheduled c-section counts against that rate!  The nurse giving the tour made a little jab at us and said she hopes that I go into early labor and end up in a natural delivery!  Needless to say it didn't sit well with me!  I am all for natural births, but I grow BIG babies and Matt and I decided a long time ago that we feel for the babies safety and mine we will stick with c-sections!  Okay done with my tangent!

I am so thankful for my supportive Husband that is willing to go along with my crazy ideas and put up with my (more than not these days) craziness!  He works so hard to give us everything that we need and want!  :o)  To be able to stay at home with my kiddos is truly a blessing!

I am thankful for our family and friends!  A couple weeks ago they totally spoiled us and threw us a shower for Miss Quinn!  I don't know if I can say thank you enough for all that they have done and do for us!  They truly are our "village" that help us through life!  :o)


I am thankful for so many other small things in my life that I could continue to write and write, but I will close with saying the small things are some of my favorite things like Kellen's giggle, Matt and Kellen playing on the floor, and then there is Starbucks!  I am so thankful for Starbucks Chai Tea Latte's!  :o)

I hope that each and everyone of you have a great Thanksgiving!  :o)
