Thanksgiving: an ode to my family

Today is Thanksgiving, and I have much to be thankful for.

First of all, let me start with the baby of the family.
Ashton is an easy baby. He is the kind that will feed and sleep and hardly fusses. He is the kind that is every parent's dream.
Often times he just sits in his rocker or pram, looking intently at things happening around him, quietly observing. He has a way of tugging at my heartstrings.
As such, I am very fond of him.

I love Adam too of course, but it's just that I love my kids differently, and there's no denying that.
Adam to me, is everything.
He is the first human baby and I have many firsts with him. He is naughty but nice, silly but smart, he can be quiet but rowdy, attention-seeking yet independent, irritating but funny.
With Adam I experience both ends of the spectrum.
Which is why I say he is my everything!

Then there's my husband. Where do I even start with a man I've known for almost a decade?
This man is my soulmate, my best friend. Andy is very strong and I often seek comfort in him because I am emotionally rather weak. He is my pillar of support, and has been for the past eight or nine years!
He farts, he snores (loudly!), he annoys the hell out of me at times, but because the kids kinda like him and because he pays the bills and groceries, I've decided to keep him a little longer.

And for all the wonderful people in my life, I am grateful for your presence.
Happy Thanksgiving.
What are you thankful for this year?
