I have always been giddy at the sights and sounds of Christmas, and this year is no exception. I am hoping to have all the shopping done by next weekend so that we can enjoy the holidays. This will be our last year celebrating in this house, and while I am beyond excited about moving, it will be sad. This will also be Ben's last Christmas as an only child and I want him to experience all that he can.
So far, Ben's favorite song is "All I want for Christmas is my 2 front teeth". Even though, Ben still has his front teeth, it is still cute and funny to hear him say "my 2 front teef". He has also learned the words to "I'm getting nuttin for Christmas". Probably because I taunt him with it at least 1x a day, but hey, whatever works.
In baby news, all tests have come back negative for any known defects. I was not going to test, but since I apparently am in "advanced maternal age", my doctor strongly recommended it. It would not have made a difference, but good to know. We will finally know what we are having on December 10. Not sure how and when we will tell everyone else, but... I have no clues on names. All the names I like do not go with our last name or Ben (example: I love the name Harper for a little girl, but everyone will think I love Ben Harper, the singer). He/she might not have a name until the last minute, but I guess that is when it really matters anyway.
I hope everyone has a Great Thanksgiving. I seem to be spending it with ALOT of Benji's family and very little of mine, but that is more reason to get on home and get the tree up. :)
