Today is Walt Disney’s 112th birthday! I’ve always been inspired by such a visionary pioneer of art, animation and entrepreneurship. Walt Disney has hundreds of memorable quotes and wisdom attributed to him, each with such a passion for exploration, creativity and wonder. In honor of his birthday today, here are my favorite inspiring Walt Disney quotes I see reflected in the magical moments with my son, Judah.

The past few days have been chock full of special milestones for our son, Judah: his first word, his first Thanksgiving and his first Hanukkah! We’ve been looking forward to celebrating our baby’s first Hanukkah as it marks the start of building new traditions together as a new family. For the first night of Hanukkah, we had a small celebration with traditional foods and songs at our home; we headed to his Nana and Pop-Pop’s house for Thanksgivukkah the next day.
Dreidels, latkes and eight nights of fun: it’s our baby’s first Hanukkah! Check out our Disney Story of Judah’s fantastic first Hanukkah celebration. Happy Hanukkah, little munchkin!
Two years and and two Thanksgivings ago, I stopped to pause and reflect on what I was thankful for that year. It was hard; I had just left my office job to start a freelancing career of my own just a week before Thanksgiving. We knew that my leaving a comfortable salaried position meant that starting fertility treatments might take even more time.
Last year at Thanksgiving, I was exactly 10 weeks pregnant: we were so incredibly lucky, blessed and fortunate that our first IVF cycle was a success. And in just two days, our 6 month old son will celebrate his very first Thanksgiving.
To say I am ever thankful this year is an understatement.
