December is always my favourite month. The holiday cheer running abundantly through the air, rosy red cheeks bitten by chilly weather, anticipation of closing out the year with pride, and the general effort to surround yourself with as much love as possible. This year has been one of the best. I’ve watched my little baby blossom into an intelligent, sweet, and caring toddler as well as receiving news we’ll be expecting another little one in 2016. I’ve never been great with children or spent my youth wanting to be a mother, but my role as Ever’s mommy fit so naturally I barely had to adjust. The bond I feel towards her is so instinctual, wanting to absorb every moment we share. I cherish our cuddles, little hilarious conversations, each and every adoring look, and the way she copies my every move. The responsibility of influencing such a smart and impressionable little girl hangs heavily on my mind daily but I value every decision I make to guide her in the right direction. Only three sleeps until Christmas Day. Wishing you all the happiest of holidays.
