Merry Christmas!

We took Valerie to Chuck E. Cheese on her birthday. She had a fantastic time! We told them at the front it was her birthday, and she got a birthday crown, a ballooon, and a candy cane. Later, Chuck E. came out and surprisingly Val wasn't scared of him. She'd wave at him but wouldn't get too close. Val even went up to the stage area to dance to "If You're Happy and You Know It" with Chuck E. and the other kids. We asked her a few times if she wanted to dance or give Chuck E. five, and Val's answer was a very short "No." lol But she'd wave at him and blow kisses. They brought out an ice cream sandwich with a candle in it and sang happy birthday to her. Val loved every minute of being there, and I'm so glad she had such a great day.

I can't believe tomorrow is Christmas Eve. It just doesn't feel like it. I did the best I could in getting ready and finding gifts for everyone, but I'm not in the mood this year. I just feel so... sad? I don't know if I have some kind of chemical/hormonal imbalance or what. At times I feel normal, but just in general I feel really depressed. I just don't feel like doing anything. I feel so "off." Everything makes me cry. I feel so alone. Clint wants me to talk to my Dr. about it. I really don't want to take any kind of meds until after Veronica is born though. I don't want to chance it. I'm just hoping it's a phase that will pass on it's own...

We moved Val into her new room! So far she's sleeping about the same as usual in there. It's not completely finished, but I am working on it little by little. Her furniture is in place and most of her clothes have been moved. I'm trying to sort through the toys, and I just don't know what to do with them. She has SO much stuff and I can't decide where to put some of it!

Tomorrow night we are going to my parents' to exchange gifts. We always have a little party over there and open presents. They are coming to our house Christmas Day and Clint is cooking dinner. I can't wait to see Valerie's reaction to all of her presents!! The look on her face opening some of her birthday gifts was priceless. I can't wait to see her Christmas morning.

I hope everyone out there has a wonderful Christmas!!!!
