'tis the season

Crystal binky ornament! One of baby girl's ornaments!  
Christmas tree lights are on, Christmas scentsy is burnin', and Josh Groban's Christmas cd is playing as I'm typing this post.... and I have butterflies in my tummy! Yes, baby girl is moving around as well, but the butterflies are separate from her movement :) I have been daydreaming about this day ever since I found out my due date was in December. I am 38 weeks today and so grateful to be expecting our baby girl any day. What a special Christmas for us, the most exciting one of our lives!
I am so overwhelmed with gratitude for the Christmas season! Anticipating the arrival of my baby has made me appreciate Christ's birth more than ever before. What a wonderful time of year to be reminded of all the miracles in this world! Baby girl is the most special miracle to our little family... I couldn't possibly ask for a better Christmas gift! It feels like I've been waiting forever for this season to arrive and now that it's finally here? I'm going to soak up every second that I can :) And pray for the safe arrival of our perfect miracle!
What are you looking forward to this season??

Does it get anymore glamorous than wearing the hubs shirt and sweats? :) This is what happens at 38 weeks!
