All I Want for Christmas.

by katelin on December 19, 2013


Last year around this time I started a new journal. I hadn’t written in an actual journal in years and I wanted a place to document our adventures in trying to become parents without overloading this blog. On the very first entry I ended it with this snippet:

It’s crazy to think how I got here. I really don’t even know when that flip switched but I am so excited for this next chapter/adventure/all of the above. I’m just happy that Matt is right here with me.

A year later and all of this still stands. I’m still so excited for what’s next even if I have no idea what that is. I’m still so glad to have Matt by my side and wanting this as much as I do. Yet, my journal entries and overall demeanor has not be as bright and cheery and optimistic lately, but I’m trying.

Yes, I’m a bit sad that a year has gone by and we’re not any closer to being parents. But, it’s a year where we learned some things the hard way and made plans to move through them. Together.¬†We’ve had a few meetings with the fertility specialist my gyno recommended and we’ve got some options in place. I’m staying optimistic. I’m dreaming big.

So all I want for Christmas this year is good news. Baby news.

Santa I hope you’re listening because I’ve been really good this year.


happy thursday!
