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!)
