"Next Year At This Time..."

Last year, Santa Claus wasn't the only one sporting a big round belly {only mine didn't shake like a bowl full of jelly}!!

Gosh, I remember it like it was yesterday! I remember feeling all of those kicks & nudges inside there! I remember sitting in his nursery during the wee hours of the night, with his little night light glowing, while outside a blizzard whirled about {remember that crazy snowstorm last Christmas?}. I imagined as I rocked in that rocking chair, the tiny baby that would soon be on the outside of my body & all snuggled up in my arms. I imagined what he would look like, imagined every toe, imagined his little nose, & wanted so desperately to be able to peek into that big round belly of mine for just a sneak preview! I would close my eyes & just imagine that "next year at this time..."

Well, "next year at this time" has come {so quickly}, & it is much, much MORE than I ever could have imagined. And now I can't imagine what my life was before our Jett came into it! "Next year at this time" is a really, really WONDERFUL place to be!!
