Thanksgiving 2011

Carlos, Marcos and Sofia,

On this Thanksgiving Day and every day, I am thankful that you were born with such might and ready to fight, you can finally breathe all by yourself after all those attempts. I thank God everyday your lungs allow you to finally cry.  I am thankful you can see, you can hear and you have good muscle tone.  I am thankful all of your surgeries were a success.  I am thankful you like to eat, your weight gain has amazed us all.

I am thankful…for the strength God gave us to get through all the ups and downs of  your NICU stay, for our family and friends' support, generosity and kindness, for everyone that has come into our lives after your birth, for every doctor and every nurse that has taken care of you since the day you arrived.

I am thankful for every person who has helped feed, change, burp and hold you, for every smile you give me and for every sound you make, especially your coos and ga-goos, for our snuggles and all the kisses you let me give you, for your smell, even when you’ve spit up all of mommy's milk.
I am thankful for your daddy who loves me unconditionally and for your sister who understands so much...I am thankful you have made me such a strong person, a better person and overall a better mom.

I am thankful God gave all three of you to me; our family is now complete. 

HAPPY THANKSGIVING! And thank you for reading our blog! Hope to post a pic of our three little turkeys later.
