My January Resolution

4 Jan

January feels like it might be a tough month to get through. With baby due in February the days are crawling by. But there is so much to be thankful for this year, of course our pending arrival, but even before she makes her debut. So, my January resolution is to not rush this time but to treasure it. Here are a few of the things I will be focusing on during the next month (or slightly more).

  • The next few weeks of work before routine and order become a long lost memory from the past!
  • The Washington Monument and the Tidal Basin on my way to work…not everyone has such a pretty commute.
  • My DC friends for the upcoming baby shower that is getting me through this week of work – it’s so wonderful to have friends willing to hang with you on a Sunday afternoon, even when you are a crabby eight months pregnant.
  • Visits from family who are more than willing to help keep me entertained, run errands, and hang decals in the nursery.
  • Pedicures – need I say more.
  • The quiet time to watch In Treatment marathons and Up series documentaries with MJD.
  • Long strolls with MJD and Artie while we have no time frames and Artie dictates where we walk.
  • The tenacity of kicks and jabs that surprise me every day. I’m pretty sure this little girl has some strong opinions about things.
  • My generous and patient husband who spent his holiday days off installing a car seat, building a desk, rearranging the nursery, hanging curtains, etc…And then remarked that we would look back at the nursery renovation pictures in 20 years and treasure this as an amazing time in our lives. And it is.
