Christmas is Over

I love the holiday season and I'm always a little bit sad to see it end. However, I am glad to be rid of all the cookies, fudge, etc. that is always with in reach everywhere you go during the month of December. I used to think that being pregnant during Christmas would awesome because I have an excuse for looking chubbier than usual. That was before I realized that my doctor loves to weigh me each month and comment on how much weight I have gained. And while the rest of you can start a new year's diet plan to lose the extra pounds you gained during the holiday season, I can look forward to gaining a pound a week for the next few months. I sound as if I am complaining, but the truth is, I love being pregnant. I mean, I don't love getting fat, but I love knowing that there is a baby inside of me and I like looking in the mirror and seeing a pregnant belly. I especially love knowing that eventually this baby will come out and then I will have my own baby.

I was finally able to talk Peter into spending the money to get a Christmas tree in our house. I decided that rather than buy cheap ugly ornaments that would most likely be broken by our child next year, I would make our Christmas decorations. I had so much fun making our ornaments and, although they do not look great, I figure the more I practice the more crafty I will become. I also added to our stockings with one for our baby. I made one for Peter and I last year so I thought it would be fun to have one for our baby this year.
