Well, baby is due on Sunday but theoretically could come any day now. Did you hear that, baby? Any day now. The second pregnancy has been relatively uneventful but definitely more tiring with a 15-month-old involved. I’m so thankful my parents have been here for almost two weeks now to help out as we await the arrival; while Bart has been super amazing as usual, we could never have managed this well on our own.

I could say a lot about pregnancy and all the thoughts and emotions associated with it or described the unique aspects of this one, but as we count down the final days I thought I would keep it relatively light by reflecting on some of the questions and comments I have received over the last few months.

With a new baby, I obviously don’t have quite as much time as I used to, but it was important to me to do at least a little holiday decorating around the house this year. It’s Hudson’s first Christmas, and though he won’t remember it, we will recall these special moments like hanging a third stocking on the mantel for the first time or watching him stare wide-eyed at the lights on the Christmas tree.

Wednesday was my birthday, one of my favorite days of the year. That birthday feeling and how I celebrate has changed a bit over the years, but I still always look forward to the special day. This year, obviously, is my first one to celebrate with Hudson. He didn’t sing to me or get me a card or anything, but he, Bart, and I had some fun adventures that made it a lovely, extended birthday celebration.
