A Time for Thanks by Victoria Roberts


Meet James Theodore. Wee Jamie is the newest bairn to our clan. He's my handsome nephew who was born on September 30, 2014. Can you believe all that hair? He was welcomed home by his big sister, Maisy.

I was fortunate enough to spend a week at my sister's house to help her out after the baby was born. How quickly we forget how much it truly takes a village to care for a newborn. But don't get me wrong. There's nothing like the feeling of a new life curling up in your arms. Babies truly are a miracle. My sister and I had a great time, and I really enjoyed being able to help her out. I didn't get the chance to do that when my niece was born because my niece and my son are only seven months apart. The two of them are so funny because they fight like an old married couple one minute, and the next minute they're playing like BFF's.

This was wee Jamie's first trip to Toys 'R Us. He makes for a fine pirate. Aargh!

Our clan has a lot to be thankful for this holiday season. Our families are happy and healthy, and a new life in the world makes you realize how grateful you are for your own.

What are you thankful for this holiday season?
