I am normally a person who loves Christmas. I love gifts and decorating and music and food and everything Christmas. However, I have been feeling less festive this year and more grinchy. Perhaps it's because I have other things on my mind, i.e. a baby growing in my tummy. And after yesterday (which was the worst pregnancy day yet - I was miserable the whole day), I didn't see the grinchiness subsiding anytime soon.
But today it did! I listened to Christmas carols online, sung by the cast of Glee (sweet love it), and I sang the carols to Baby Rice. And now both of us are in the mood! I think that Rice and I will convince Kevin to get the Christmas decorations out of the garage this weekend so that we can start decorating. And even though it' too early to buy a tree, we can get that after Thanksgiving next week!
Speaking of the Christmas spirit, another name on our girl's list is Natalie. I just like the way it sounds, plus it means born on Christmas Day. Which wouldn't actually be true, but maybe Baby could be Christmas-obsessed like me, and then she would like her name. Natalie Dahl, I like the way it rolls together.
