Happy Holidays from The Rubecs!

Saturday, December 22, 2018

How lucky are we to be able to enjoy the holidays together as a couple while waiting for our baby's arrival?!

With our due date falling right in the middle of January, months ago we made a conscious decision to not celebrate the holidays the way we usually do. This meant that we:

  • Couldn't travel to Ottawa for Christmas (we need to stay as close to our hospital as possible)
  • Skip out on our big gift shopping and Santa photo day at Bayshore Mall (yes, we actually look forward to this each year!)
  • Couldn't decorate our condo like we usually do (considering how little energy I have these days, the idea of putting it all away in January with the baby due any day seemed daunting to me)
  • Keep it as low key as possible with our workload as well as holiday gatherings (this meant no Vlogmas but next year's will be TWICE as fun with a little bebe)

I'd be lying if I said we weren't sad about missing out on all our annual traditions, but with all that has been happening recently within the last trimester and my doctors recommending to have our baby much sooner than the original due date, I am SO glad we planned things this way.

Instead, James and I are going to stay in over the next few days and cook really yummy meals together, watch our favourite movies, relax and enjoy this time together as a couple before the cute little boy arrives!

We are so so so excited.

We're wishing you all a VERY happy holiday and hope you get to spend it with your loved ones doing all the things you enjoy the most! Understanding that this is also a difficult time and not as joyous for some of you, we are thinking of you and praying for you as well. 💕
