Week 38: Better Than Christmas

I’m still in a bit of shock that Christmas is less than two weeks away.  I’m definitely a summer-girl but I also love me some Christmas cheer.  I get a little giddy when I see the first commercials for department store Christmas sales, hear that first Christmas song on the radio and spot the first Christmas lights glowing on our neighbors’ rooftops.  This year feels a little different though.  I want to say “I have more important things on my mind” but then I feel guilty (I mean…to outright say that I think MY baby’s birth is ‘more important’ than the birth of baby Jesus…that’s just wrong).  I guess what I really mean is that I’m distracted this year.  We’re going minimalist on the decorations (less to put away come January!) and cutting back on our gift giving (less time spent shopping…more cash in our pockets to pay for diapers!).  We did manage to get a tree and decorate it—and I’ve been rockin’ out to Hanson’s Christmas album (um, it’s awesome) in the car.  But it just doesn’t feel the same.  I guess it’s kind of a great way to describe to someone what the anticipation of having a baby on the way is like—it’s like all the excitement of the Christmas season—but times a hundred.  Yes, that great.
