Merriest Christmas

Last year, our baby boy was in my tummy during the holidays. See above photo.

This year, Christmastime looks and feels a whole lot different. There seems like there are too few hours in a day to do all the Christmas activities I want to do. We are way more tired, and our bed is much less roomier. On the flip side, we have a fuller bed and fuller hearts.

We are more loved and really, isn't that what the holidays are all about? 
Isn't LOVE the true reason for the season? 

Christmas is no longer about the material items on our "Wish List." When I was little, I used to want baby dolls for Christmas. When I met my husband and we dated we always spoke of how amazing Christmas would be with our own baby. When we got pregnant, we spoke about waking up and snuggling with our baby in the middle. He's made our dreams come true. 

Christmas is now all about making him happy. And so, it holds so much more meaning, so much more importance. Because we are parents to our baby boy and feel fortunate to have been blessed with these roles. 

We owe all of the Christmas magic this year to him. It's all about him, his love and his happiness now. It's worthier to us than anything else--clothes, vacations, date nights. You simply can't put a price tag on it.
