I do miss our big live tree, especially since we had an extra week of Christmas to enjoy with Thanksgiving being so early. But I think our tree this year is cute enough and may be my favorite tree yet. Every year we buy an ornament to represent the year and these are the ones we chose for 2012.
Since the tree was a little sparse with 4 ornaments, we used our favorite photos from 2012 as ornaments.
Yep that is our little baby! Set to make an appearance next June!! Growing a human, even if they are 3" long is tough work (hence the lack of Christmas decor)but we are so crazy excited and so extremely grateful that God chose us to become this little ones parents.
So many of you have sent the nicest emails and comments of encouragement to me and I appreciate that so much. And to those of you still hurting to fill that hole in your heart I am praying for you - every night while I am awake from 2-4am. While I am forever grateful to be having a baby, my heart still hurts so badly for you. I carry so much guilt that I was one of the ones that survived and got out of the "club" but just know that every time I think God for this baby I also say a prayer for you that you will get to take a happy photo like this soon.
The night we found out. I slept with that test on my nightstand and probably looked at it 20 times all night!
