Thanksgiving thoughts

First, i just want to say thanks for all the support! its so nice to have a place to vent and/or ramble sometimes.

i've been doing better in the "possible" PPD area. stil not sleeping too good, but i havent felt as sad or depressed lately. i think i had too much going on at one time, then you mix hormones into it and you get a ticking time bomb HAHA however, i am paying close attention just in case.

i didnt get my date night, but we did take off for the day on Saturday with the baby and spent some much needed time with my parents and to my favorite sushi joint for all you can eat sushi. we had fun and im glad we did what we did. honestly, leaving kendra isnt on my list of things i want to do right now anyway. our 10 year anniversary is December 22nd, we are planning a date night then. Plus we have a wedding to go to on New Years Eve.

On to Kendra. She is now 3 months old Sad So we've known for about 2 weeks that she was teething, as she was drooling ALOT and constantly trying to chew on my fingers(did i mention how hard it is trying to keep my hands clean constantly for her to chew on them LOL)as she hasnt really taken to any of teething toys yet. so everyday we look for teeth and cant find any. Yesterday morning, her grandmother, during a quick trip by to see her look at her and immediately noticed her teeth. 2 of them. YIKES!! :eek:

my biological father will be here tomorrow evening to spend Thanksgiving with us. my feeling are torn about this. we have a not so good history which i am trying to put behind me, that is difficult at times. He has been extremely supportive from the moment he found out i was pregnant. He cried is eyes out when my mom told him she was born and he cried when the first time i talked to him after wards and he cried 2 weeks ago wehn he first saw picks of Kendra. i extended the invite to him to come up for a few days so that he can meet kendra, as she is "techncally" his granddaughter. im just nervous about the visit and wanted to get that off my chest.

last night i was going through her clothes that no longer fit her and i pulled out her premie jammies that we bought her after she was born because nothing else fit her. i took them out to kendra who was peacefuly eating and layed the jammies on top of kendra. HOLY SMOKES it is so tiny! it is hard to believe that 3 months ago she was that small!! It seems like just yesterday we were all still waiting for our gender scans. Time is passing much to fast for my liking, but im sure we ALL feel that way!

And lastly, im thankful for so much this thanksgiving, one of the things i am thankful for is all of you. i want to give a big :bigarmhug: to you all and say thanks for listening to me vent, ramble etc. i really dont think i would have made it through the pregnancy without all of you, let alone the last 3 months. i have enjoyed sharing my experiences with you all, and i have really enjoyed reading about all of yours.

So because i know i will be so busy after this....

HAPPY THANKSGIVING to you all, wether you will be celebrating it on thursday or not Smile

Oh I totally hear you on the teething thing! Early teething is not fun. The only good thing is they finish a lot quicker than everyone else. hahahaaa Smile

Thanks for the update. I hope things with your father work out well and you have a nice visit. Happy Thanksgiving! We celebrate it in October here. Enjoy your family. Smile
