I'm still trying to shake off the feeling of Christmas blues. It always hits me, but it usually doesn't last this long. There have been many changes in my life this year. Maybe I just haven't got a grip on them yet. Maybe I'm concentrating on others too much and not enough on me. I need to take time out for me - to sit and sum up the year, decide where I want to go, set new goals. Resolutions for the new year are definitely in order.
One bright note is that I did go to the doctor with my daughter yesterday. She got her second ultrasound. The first was a month ago. I was astounded at the difference in just one month! (She's at 13 weeks.) In the first ultrasound, I could see the baby, but the baby was so tiny and I couldn't see any details. This time, the body had definitely taken shape. The face had the cutest little nose. The baby was moving all over the place, moving the arms up and down. The little fingers were curled at the end joints as if to say "Hi Momma and Grandma!" It gave me such a warm and fuzzy feeling. Sherry was on the table a little farther away from the screen. The nurse was talking about the arms and hands and Sherry was far enough away to be unsure. Of course, I was practically on top of the screen. So, I got to stand there and point everything out. It's something I will always remember!
