Thanksgiving 2009

Carter made it through his first Thanksgiving virtually unscathed (he has a few self-imposed scratches, but that will decrease as he gains more dexterity in the coming months).

His Holiday Marathon started last Sunday (as tradition holds on the paternal branch) at Namp & Nina's. Needless to say, neither Mom nor Dad held Carter for much of the time that we were there...only the occasional feeding and addressing the expected, ahem, wardrobe malfunctions.

Carter got to spend some QT with more of his Dad's side...reading time with Aunts, getting introduced to Cousins, hanging with Uncle Buck.

After a 3 day break, we headed down to Upstate New York (to spend time with Pepé & NaMé) and enjoyed the company of Mom's family. Again, we did not hold Carter that much as Uncles & Great Aunts monoplized "Carter Time" (much to his delight).

He did get to partake in some traditional Thanksgiving eats...his favorite was the squash.

Carter is turning out to be a party animal. If there is some socializing to do, then sleep can wait. This sounds like a solid plan on paper but things didn't quite work out to his liking. Fortunately, he did decide to eventually succumb to the nurturing arms of the Sandman. He also slept in a bit as well...

We hope all of our friends & family had a great Holiday filled with safe travels and warm companionship. As always, we are thinking of each and every one of you.
