18/19 Week Rambling

Tuesday, November 17, 2015

This past Saturday we had our annual Turducken Day and although I was resistant to hosting at first, I'm glad we decided to do it for at least one more year. It felt really special having everyone over since we're all going through so many monumental life changes. It really forces us all to slow down, catch up on life and just enjoy a delicious dinner together before the craziness of the holidays sets in.

This was definitely the year of the baby with so many expectant bellies and little ones being passed around and tottling around. All of this to say, I got one whole picture out of the day but it's such a sweet picture for me - my sister and I, her nearing the end of her pregnancy and me just reaching the halfway point in mine. It's been such a blessing sharing pregnancies with friends and she in particular has been my rock throughout it all. We can't wait to meet our nephew! Having cousins so close in age is going to be wonderful and not to mention - having another mom at home to hang out with :)

And speaking of pregnancy, I'm in my 19th week! The main changes I've had the last two weeks are that I've been feeling lots of movement and I've also been getting more emotional thinking about the baby and the amazing impact he/she will have on our life together. Embarrassing story time: On Sunday I was happily working on the changing table and listening to Christmas music when Mariah Carey's "All I want for Christmas (is you baby)" came on. What started as me dancing around and being silly resulted in me crying thinking about how all I really DID want this year was a baby and how lucky we are to have been given that gift. I think I thoroughly confused Ben with my whiplash of emotions haha I am turning into such a sap!

I can't believe we're already halfway through November but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't excited for Thanksgiving to get here already. I'm in full blown Christmas elf mode this year, but I promised Ben I wouldn't start decorating until T-day is over but that might mean black Friday since we both have off ;) Happy holidays!
