Thank You Baby: Reasons to Be Thankful for Babies This Thanksgiving

This coming Thursday, the majority of households in America will be giving thanks and celebrating Thanksgiving. Sometimes it’s hard to remember all that we have to be thankful for – our lives are busy and often times stressful. But, on Thanksgiving Day, we take a moment to step back and be grateful for all we truly do have, including our families. Babies are probably one of the best ways to be reminded about the simplicity in life and all that is good. I asked a few parents to share with me why this Thanksgiving they’ll be giving thanks for the babies in their lives. Here’s what they had to say.
