We had a great 1st Thanksgiving at home yesterday. It's weird - although it was really Claire's 2nd Thanskgiving, we feel like they are all her firsts since she was still in the hospital last year. We are so thankful for so many things!
Claire tried some new "big girl" foods yesterday and today for the first time. She ate sweet potato casserole, cooked peas and carrots, a few butterbeans, some turkey crumbs, carrot cake, and apple pie. She also had some rice and biscuits, but she's already had those before. She seemed to like all of it and didn't have any trouble with the textures. This morning, my mom cooked breakfast and she ate a few scrambled eggs, some grits, and some grape jelly. The jelly was her favorite of course.
Here are a few pictures from Thanksgiving. Claire wouldn't look at the camera, so you get a side view. Her cute turkey outfit was borrowed from Maddie and it was perfect! Then at lunch Daddy decided Claire needed to wear his orange hunting hat. Too cute!
Also, Baby Parker is doing great! His mom sent me this picture last night. He is off the cpap and they hope to start him on feeds today. He is resting well and breathing well! Thank you for all of your prayers. Please continue them for Parker and his family!
