all I ever wanted

 crappy cell phone picture :)
A couple mornings ago I turned on the Christmas tree lights, blasted my Josh Groban Christmas CD (my all time favorite) and was about to bust out some cleaning while Mia played. Of course I had to sit with Mia for a minute to "ooh and aah" over the lights... then I couldn't help but bust a few moves with my sweet babe who was loving the music... until my laughing turned into crying. I mean, the ugly cry.
I remember listening to this music and staring at my Christmas tree every single day until Mia was born, wondering and day dreaming about what it would be like to enjoy it all with my baby. And here I was, watching Mia rock out to Little Drummer Boy (check out the video on IG) when it hit me-- This is all I ever wanted! I have an amazing, dedicated, loving husband who helped me bring this perfect baby into the world. God has blessed our little family so much with her perfect little soul!
Now I wonder why I was dreading this month. Yes, Mia is growing too quickly but what a miracle each day with her truly is! I am so thankful that God trusted me to be her mother. I am so grateful for this season to remind us of all our blessings! I am so grateful for our loving Heavenly Father and His son, our brother, Jesus Christ. Without them we would cease to be... along with the joy (and sorrows) we experience in this life.
In case you're wondering, I didn't get my cleaning done. I cried and played with Mia all morning long :) This is going to be a fun birthday month for Mia! And yet again, the best Christmas ever! (I'm sure I'll be saying that every year!)

I started singing that "vacation all I ever wanted" song when I saw your title. Your tree is gorgeous, no wonder Mia would want to sit and look at it

I watched the video twice last night because Mia was just too cute for words! I could just eat her up. I remember looking at the Christmas tree when I was pregnant and dreaming about the years to come. I can't wait to experience that again some day and get to see my child's excitement over the lights and music. You are so blessed!

Aww, I know the feeling! I broke down the other day when I realized my baby was already six months, and my three year old will be four before I know it. Time flies...so bittersweet.

This is so sweet! I've definitely had similar moments. I was so emotional about Kaya's first birthday- sad that the time went by so fast, but so grateful for my precious angel. Now I can't wait to see how excited she gets for Christmas this year! :)

This is Olivia's 3rd Christmas and you're right, it does keep getting better and better! She is SO MUCH FUN helping me with the tree, requesting her favorite song (Jingle Bell Rock), oohing and awing at the lights. Every Christmas just keeps getting more special! Enjoy it! Mia is so darling!!
