Merry Christmas everyone! This year was the best Christmas in years for Brian and I and no doubt some of the excitement has to do with the fact that we look forward to Olivia's first Christmas next year. Even though she's still cooking along, she still managed to squeak out a few gifts from her uncles. She now has some Georgia Tech gear and a onesie properly mocking the Packers. :)
Most importantly our greatest present this Christmas has been the love and support of our families. Our parents have been phenomenal as have our siblings as we continue down the path towards Olivia's delivery. We realize that not every set of parents with situations like ours (or sadly worse) has such a loving group around them and are most appreciative even if we don't always voice our thanks.
As I watched the lights twinkle on the Christmas tree, I smile as I look over the little Guardian Angel ornament that a woman from work gave me for Olivia. How kind and thoughtful she was to take a moment and make a beautiful Angel specifically for our baby girl. I plan on putting it in Olivia's room as soon as the Christmas trees come down for the season. Then again...currently, we don't even have floors in Olivia's room. Her Christmas wish should probably be that Mommy and Daddy get going on giving her a proper place to sleep when she comes home!
