december 8, 2012 - 28 weeks pregnant
Last weekend was Jason's Anesthesia Christmas parties. This year was a bit different for me than last year, for obvious reasons. Although for being 7 months pregnant, I was pretty proud of myself for making it through the night in heels and closing out the party at midnight. I have to admit that my poor feet were killing me by the end of the night, but it was well worth it to have a good time with great friends. I soaked my feet in warm water and got a foot massage before crashing in bed that night. Jason takes good care of me :)
I have truly enjoyed getting into the Christmas spirit this year. We haven't been able to go all out with decorations and such like we usually do since we have plenty of baby projects keeping us occupied. One of my favorite things to think about lately is how this time next year we will have a precious baby girl celebrating her first Christmas. I get so overwhelmed with excitement wondering what she will think about all the beautiful lights and decorations. I wonder if she will be a fan of Santa or be totally freaked out. And most of all, I can't wait to tell her the story of Jesus being born in the manger. This is such a special time of year!
With the events that happened this past Friday in Connecticut, I can't help but also be a bit nervous about bringing an innocent child into this scary world. My heart still aches for all the families that lost someone that day. I can't even begin to comprehend losing a child. My thoughts and prayers continue to be with them.
