I think the asymmetry in A is great!

C for me! The detail of the heart on the right balances it nicely. :)

Option C. asymetrical and I like where the heart is - it balances the toddler somehow.

I like a but may swap the name and year so the heart can create more balance? With the heart and the heavier swash on that side, it feels just a little more crowded than it needs to be.

I voted A. I generally prefer asymmetry and I do here as well...I'm wondering if the end of the Y tail needs to connect to the M? Would it work if it swept underneath the swash coming off the m? Not sure but I'm just not sure about that curve connecting the two letters. I hope that helps!

D but I want the descenders to look linked(overlap).

I like the overlap in option A, but it feel more balanced in D. So maybe a combination of two:)

I chose C. Just an idea / suggestion (not sure what it would look like or if it would fit) but drop the swash on the "m" or the "y" and add christmas after or before the swash? You may need to space out the letters a bit more for it to fit.

B I like the balance in B. I might add some space between the letters in merry, the descenders don't overlap.
