We haven’t had a white Christmas in Seattle since 1990, but we definitely have one today! We woke up this morning to several more inches of snow. While beautiful, it’s going to prevent us from getting up to my Grandma’s house today to see family. They have even more snow up there, plus potential for ice this evening. We’re waiting to do presents until our niece is here this weekend, so we’ll have a relaxing Christmas day at home…currently there is fudge being made, and I think Jeff and I will venture out for a walk in the snow soon. Thankfully my in-laws were finally able to get here on Tuesday night, two days later than scheduled but with the mess that was Sea-Tac, we are just thrilled that they made it here! We also have my brother-in-law, his girlfriend, and her daughter here from eastern Washington, so we are enjoying a houseful of family and friends. It is great to have people here to celebrate the holiday with us.
I’m now 28 weeks pregnant and officially in the third trimester! I survived the blood draw for the glucose test. They also took vials to test for anemia and for Rh antibodies since I am a negative blood type and Jeff is positive, so I may have Rh incompatibility with the baby. If I’m not making any antibodies, I’ll go in for a shot to keep me from making them. The baby is moving lots and last night after dinner he showed off his moves for the company. He now weighs about 2 1/4 pounds, or about the size of a Chinese cabbage.
Here’s a Christmas day belly shot, it’s kind of blurry but you’ll get the idea:
A very Merry Christmas to all of you! We are thinking of and missing family and friends who are far away.
