Christmas Reflections


Most evenings during this time of the year end with me silently gazing at our Christmas tree reflecting on the year and getting teary eyed with sentimental thoughts on past Christmas seasons. Blame it on the new mom hormones, but this year I’ve been more of a mess than usual. Even though our sweet little babe really has no idea what is going on, this season is so much more magical with him around. We are so excited to share our favorite holiday traditions with Wyatt and start some new ones as well.

Last year at this time Wyatt was merely a hope in our hearts. Little did we know that he was already brewing inside of me on Christmas day. 

He still feels like a dream.

Nearly everyday I catch myself staring down at him and exclaiming, “I can’t believe he’s actually here!”

And it’s true. I still can’t believe that he is ours. I can’t believe that he was inside of me only three and half short months ago. I can’t believe that he is here to stay. It feels like I’m playing pretend, like this isn’t my real life. 

As an overly sensitive and sentimental person I thought I would be overflowing with words to write once our baby entered our world. Yet, the opposite as proven to be true.

I am so overwhelmed by the greatness of motherhood and the greatness of his presence that I can’t put my feelings into words. 

All I know is that my heart has never been so full. 

And it’s so very magical.

This will be the greatest Christmas with so much to celebrate and be thankful for. 

Wyatt has truly lit up our world.
