I have always loved Christmas. I love it for the celebration, excitement, traditions and memories. Now that Adisyn is a little older, she is able to appreciate the excitement and begin to learn new traditions. I'm not sure who was more excited, either me, Mark or Adisyn. We spent time making crafts and decorating as a family. There are no words to describe how elated Adisyn was each time the Christmas tree lights were turned on. It's the simple things that make it so meaningful!
Earlier in the month we took a short weekend trip to visit my family. We have never been to my family's home for the holidays due to our work schedule in over 10 years or so. Adisyn has never been on a plane and she hasn't gotten to meet my side of the family. So, since we had the chance, we decided to go! Adisyn did great on the 2 hour or so plane ride. I loved showing her off to my family so they could see her sweet personality. It was a very special trip!
I was hoping the trip would take my mind off any anticipation I might have. AF was due when we were gone, but I barely took any of the necessities in case she came. I just didn't want to think about it and I was hoping for the best while feeling optimistic. What a great celebration it would be for Christmas! Then, on time, AF came for the visit as well. With all the excitement of my family I didn't have a chance to dwell on it, but it was still in the back of my mind. It's hard to fight off the disappointment.
This month I decided to go back on Clomid. Mark and I discussed it and decided why not? The doctor prescribed Clomid for a reason and it is designed to increase my chances, to assist in the effort. Why decrease our odds when we feel our odds are stacked against us? We are extremely hopeful for this month!
When Christmas was here we had so much joy, like we were kids ourselves. I really learned the full extent of how much fun this whole parenting thing is! I knew it was the best job on Earth, but it's also the funniest! How exciting is that to be extending our family and to share this with another child?
As we look forward to the New Year, a fresh start is uplifting. We are feeling confident that we will be sharing good news soon!
