My present is under the tree

This year Christmas just snuck right up on me. It feels different than it has in the past.

I already have everything that I want.

Looking back at last year I may have said.... "I really wanted to soak in this first Christmas together. A Christmas with just the two of us. Who knows, maybe next year we'll have our own baby santa."

I was already plotting then.

Now we do have our own sweet little baby.

This year I can just set him down beneath the tree like the little gift he is.

I can watch him as he takes it all in, mesmerized by the lights and ornaments.

I love to look in his eyes and see the reflection of the twinkling tree lights. For now, this is the magic of Christmas for him.

It will be a quiet, calm Christmas Eve unlike one we've ever had before or one we'll ever have again.

Quiet and calm in between feedings and diaper changes, of course.

I wish you all a wonderful Christmas full of love and magic.

  4. You have a most beautiful gift...a true blessing from our Creator. A new life. A new family member. Your own special Baby!

    My baby drove 300 miles to be with us and brought her own baby, my grandson, who is now 15 years old. Plus we will celebrate with all the babies we have locally. God truly gifts when He gives us family.

    May His love abound! Merry Christmas!

  11. What a perfect little gift he is. :-) You're so right, this is the last calm and peaceful Christmas you will have for quite some time. Match and I were trying to soak up that feeling too. Maybe next year or the year after we'll have our own little gift under the tree. :-)
