December 2012 Memories

It was a joy to be able to spend Christmas with family this year.  Utah was beautiful.  White, snowy, sparkling, just how Christmas should look.  My heart was filled with so much happiness and love for my little one from seeing her excitement for this wonderful time of year.  Christmas lights, snow, candy canes, ornaments on a Christmas tree, everything was so magical for her.  (Except Santa: he is more scary to her than magical).  To top it off we got to see my little brother get married to the most adorable girl I could have ever imagined.  We are so happy for them and I am thrilled to have her part of our family!

 E holding up her French horn and yelling to me 
"Look Momma!  It's a Prench Horn!!"
a. how the heck did she know it was a french horn
b. wonder when she will stop saying "p" for "f"

Yes.  I got my husband a steamer for Christmas. 

It feels good to start a new year.  In just a week and a half I will be entering my last trimester.  This is starting to feel real.  There were so many times during my pregnancy where I thought or sometimes was convinced I was miscarrying, but things are feeling more stable, and I am letting myself believe finally that I will one day get to hold this little boy in my arms.  Every movement I feel, every little kick from him is nothing short of a miracle.  An absolute miracle.  I feel so unbelievably lucky and blessed to be experiencing this pregnancy.  I love being pregnant, if I didn't choose to do IVF to screen for my disease I may want to experience pregnancy a few more times.  I love the feeling of the baby inside of me, I love seeing my belly grow.  I truly love it.

Cheers to a wonderful new year!  A year where this little boy will finally make his debut-we have been waiting to see him for a while now so this should definitely be a year to remember.
