We had a very nice Thanksgiving last week. For the first time my mother came with us to my in-laws house to celebrate and to watch Hunter stuff his face with yummy food. It was great having my mom stay with us for two days, the extra set of hands to help with the Hunter is always welcome.
Hunter took a great nap in the morning but Thanksgiving dinner fell during the time he typically takes his afternoon nap so he was a bit fussy. He was also overwhelmed by all the people that were there (about 20), most of whom he doesn't remember having met. He was having a bit of stranger danger anxiety and really only wanted me, Kristian or one of his grandmothers holding him.
When it came to eating he was a champ and ate everything he was given. Not that I doubted he would. He LOVES to eat. We even got a preview of what it will be like on his birthday with the smash cake, when he got his hands on some pumpkin pie.
Finally after dinner, the only way we could get him to fall asleep (despite the fact that he was incredibly tired) was for Kristian to literally drive him around the block so he would fall asleep in his car seat and then brought him inside and let him continue to nap in his carseat.
We spent the rest of the weekend, decorating for Christmas, shopping online, cleaning the house and even went to see Breaking Dawn Part 2 while my mother-in-law babysat. Not a bad way to spend 4 days off.
My preppy little man.
Hunters Great Aunts and Great Uncle.
Chocolate, Apple and Pumpkin pies.
Post dinner watching the Redskins beat the Cowboys! Almost better than the Super Bowl.
Digging into the pumpkin pie. And yes I put my Redskins jersey on for the game.
The next day Hunter enjoyed checking out the lights on the Christmas tree.
This Thanksgiving was very different than last year when I was technically on bedrest and having to take it very easy. I was also so huge and uncomfortably pregnant last year. This year I spent the whole time holding or chasing after a very active, almost 11 month old. Time sure does fly.
