This Thanksgiving holiday has been absolutely perfect from start to finish. My mom, Mac's Mimi, came to stay with us Monday and Tuesday and took laundry folding and nursery organizing to a whole new level. Picking up our house and setting up for Thanksgiving, plus running a few last minute errands, was so much easier because she came.
Bradley's family came to our house for Thanksgiving this year, so Mac got to spend time with his Nana and Papa, plus he got to meet his Uncle Todd and Aunt Laura for the very first time. What a treat! A few weeks in to his dairy-free, Zantac-full lifestyle, he's feeling so much better and everyone is thrilled. What a wonderful, low-key Thanksgiving we had - and what a happy baby we shared with our family. Such a blessing!
Today, the day after Thanksgiving, two of my closest friends came to visit and meet Mac. Sarah, from Chicago, drove up from Columbia to munch on Chick-Fil-A (don't judge - I suggested it because Chicago is sadly CFA-free) and catch up. Our lunch was Mac's first foray into fine dining (or any dining, for that matter, besides the homebound kind) and he did wonderfully! We're so, so grateful he's feeling better.
Kristen came over from their family celebration to see our sweet boy and chat about their upcoming trip to Charleston and the return drive back down to Florida. (Plus a little friendly Clemson/Carolina banter.) How I wish we were all neighbors!
(Plus Mac slept in this morning, going back to sleep after his 6:30 feeding. Hallelujah! And with two four-hour stretches last night, he only woke once between 10:30 and 6:30 to eat. This is big news, people! Let's hope it continues...)
