Hormonal Holiday Cheer

I am super excited for Christmas this year. Mainly, for the obvious reason of our little miracle growing inside me!! We feel so blessed and just plain old happy that it's finally happening for us. Finally, all my birthday and Christmas wishes are coming true. And this probably won't be the last time this month, that I pour my heart out about how grateful we are. I know a lot of people find it hard to understand why some people "rush" Christmas. I'm not one of those people. I'm fine with hearing Christmas music in November and we usually put up our tree the day after Thanksgiving. I feel like this year though there are a lot of people very excited for Christmas for their own reasons I suppose. But I really think the world is just hungry for some holiday cheer. For some happiness in a bad economy. We want something to look forward to and take our minds off the everyday life struggles. That's my theory :)

Last night I watched the Rockefeller Tree lighting as I do every year. And I was crying my eyes out when Carole King was singing "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas." It's my favorite Christmas song. And while it has some sad undertones to it, I've always looked to that song as a little bit of hope. Every holiday that went by with no baby yet, would make me connect with this song. That no matter how down I was feeling I was going to try to have a Merry Little Christmas and let my heart be light...

Have yourself a merry little Christmas,
Let your heart be light
From now on,
our troubles will be out of sight...

Thanks for all your advice on the birthing/breastfeeding classes! I went ahead and registered us for a Maternity tour of the hospital this month. And then in February and March will be our breastfeeding and childbirth class. I figured I should sign us up now because I've read they can fill up quick!

I love love this song too and it always gets me! Just like Kenny G's version. I was actually going to write a post about this song too. LOL.
