Now that Halloween has passed, the next two months are going to fly by. Christmas decorations have been out for at least a couple of weeks, and many people believe Nov.1 is the official day to start playing Christmas music. We’re going to try to slow things down just a little with a Thanksgiving post! Thanksgiving is all about giving thanks, spending time with family, and reflecting on the positive things in life—these are great qualities to put behind a baby name. Not to mention, who wouldn’t be thankful for a bouncing baby girl or boy?

Can you feel the holiday feeling in the air today? Tonight may seem a bit hectic with all of the preparations for the largest family feast of the year but do not get discouraged. If you are expecting, take a breather and step out of the hustle and bustle of baking and sweet-potato making.
