Holidays

Christmas is almost here and I am trying not to get tangled up in the emotion of not spending it with Isabella. I know that she is spending it with Jesus and all of the angels. Even though Frank and I are not ready to celebrate the holidays with it festivities, I am trying to make it special for Julian. I want him to look. Ack and see pictures of his first Christmas. We have stocking with his name and Bella's. Hyenas presents under the tree and he will be dressed up in a Christmas themed outfit. I feel bad that I am not allowing him to spend it with aloof his family,but it's what we need right now. Our Christmas will entail him visiting his sister and sending her Christmas love. That is our reality right now. Yummy egg nog, good food, my husband and my baby sill I need this Christmas. The only thing that could make it better would be Isabella running around. She will be with us in spirit. I love you Bella and know that you are watching over your baby brother.

Sounds like a step in the right direction to me :) I think that Christmas is about being grateful for the family we have within our own four walls and while it's great to get together with others over the holidays, I think we get wrapped up in all the things that take away from the true meaning of the season. I came to this conclusion a couple of days ago...
Emily and I went to visit Bella the other day to bring her ornament (when we did it last year, Em was in my belly...). While I was looking at Emily marvelling at the pictures of Bella it occurred to me that I would rather be at home enjoying every minute of her first Christmas season instead of worrying about the logistics of carting her from place to place. I have no doubt that you and Frank will make Julian's first Christmas special and memorable. We can't wait to meet your little man when the time is right.

Lotsa Christmas love from the Cosentinos!

Julian is so lucky to have you both as parents and to have the best big sister ever. The true meaning of Christmas is being thankful for the most important things in life, so spending it at home with Frank and Julian seems to be a nice choice this year. Bella will be with you all, as she always is, and I know her love and spirit will be close to me too. I love both your children as if they were mine.
