“Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.”
This is kind of how I feel right now. We know not the day or the hour that this baby will be born, but it could be any time between now and my birthday. I asked Bodie if it seemed like I was a ticking time bomb, and he said a resounding YES. I’m sort of calm about the whole thing, which is crazy, because Christmas stuff is everywhere and I still haven’t finished unpacking or “setting up the nursery”… but whatever. Babies don’t need much. We’ll make do, whenever he decides to make his appearance.
All is well with my health, and I am (very, very) slowly getting more energy back. There are good days and bad days and if I don’t drink crazy amounts of water I end up parked right back on my couch.
But, things are pretty darn good. We have wonderful and generous friends who are giving us outgrown baby clothes, and offering to help with everything we might need. We had a beautiful (and low key) Christmas, and it was just right. We didn’t do a Christmas card this year, so here’s a picture of our family on Christmas instead:
and we did a “practice run” of Miri sleeping over at Grandma’s and she did great. There was talk about a babymoon to NYC, but I wasn’t really strong enough for that so we had a lovely night at home.
New Year’s was also low key, but we ate lots of yummy food and Miriam and I went to a friend’s Countdown to Noon party. It was very sweet, the kids loved it though I don’t think any of them understood the meaning of the holiday.
So now I’ll finish getting the house in order, put the Christmas stuff away, and get ready for this baby! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, New Years, and holiday season.
