Last week we celebrated Leighton’s first Thanksgiving, and oh how much we have to be thankful for this year!! The addition of our little girl to our family is of course the biggest blessing we’ve received not just this year, but ever.
Our first trip to Nashville with baby in tow was definitely different than last trips, but we had so much fun trekking around the city introducing her to family and friends. We spent 4 nights there with Craig’s family, but we managed to pack about a month’s worth of visits in while we were there. And along the same lines, we packed half our house to make the trip! Here are a few of our favorite moments from the trip (not pictured are visits with several other friends — somehow, I forgot to snap any photos!).
The perfect baby traveller is a sleeping one::
Cheering on Aunt Cassie at her basketball game::

I think it’s now confirmed that L looks just like her daddy::
Thanks for my Gobble onesie, Addison!
Craig’s family surprised us with a mini shower and sent us home with all sorts of goodies!
A fun afternoon at Arrington Vineyards::
Quality time with some of my best girls::
L didn’t quite cooperate for a photo with Craig’s parents, but we’ll take it!
The holidays have always been something I look forward to — spending time with loved ones, eating delicious food, doing nice things for others, and taking time to really appreciate our many blessings. Having a baby has made these occasions so much more special and memorable, and I know that feeling will only multiply as she gets older. We can’t wait to get back to Nashville next month for Christmas!
