15 Weeks

Dear Harrison,

You have had a week of firsts...

Soooooo close now...

You met Lyndsey and Jamie.  Lyndsey is the youngest daughter of Lorraine.  Lorriane was our adopted mother while we lived in the UK.  And if I could chose a little sister Lyndsey would be it.  Jamie is her boyfriend.  We have been exploring Nashville by way of eating and shopping.  They are wonderful people and we are going to miss them.  Pretty sure they just need to move in.

You had your first big shopping trip.  We took Lyndsey and Jamie to Opry Mills.  You were an absolute trooper.  You loved all of the mirrors in Lyndsey's favorite store Forever 21.

You saw your first Christmas tree and Christmas lights at Opryland Hotel.  You had fallen asleep beforehand but once we were inside you woke.  So I grabbed you out of the stroller immediately for you to take it all in.  We then walked around outside to see the lights on all of the trees and the Nativity scene.  It was a great experience for us both my love.  I cannot wait to bring you again next holiday season.

You enjoyed your first Thanksgiving.  We went to Ruby's house, who by far cooks the best true holiday meal.  We had a massive feast, played board games, and just hand a nice time with our family and our extended family Jamie and Lyndsey.  They also had their first Thanksgiving and Lyndsey had her first experience of Black Friday shopping.  It was manic and pretty sure the next time I go out at midnight will be for gifts for you.

We will be spending our last few days with Lyndsey and Jamie.  Then next week we will begin decorating for Christmas as we never decorate before Thanksgiving.  You will love it once all the lights are up and twinkling around the house.

I have so much to be thankful for...

I am most thankful for you.

 I love you,
