The last day of June

July starts tomorrow and my due date is exactly 1 week away. I started my maternity leave a few days early and I couldn't be more happy staying home and resting. 39 weeks pregnant and I dared to put on a bathing suit, thank goodness I still have one that fits!

Seems like all I'm doing is waiting for this baby to come... time is moving as slow as a snail right now. Almost 39 weeks pregnant and STILL working full time, I cherish the weekends to be able to tidy up, take naps with my pup and soak my feet in my very own Homedics foot spa. So for now, I'm still waiting, and working, but boy am I READY!

A night at the beach

On a whim we decided to go to the beach for the evening. This was little Jeter's first time at the beach and it was a beautiful night. Yes, our dog is very spoiled but it was nice to get out and spend some time together before the baby comes. As proud parents to a Yorkie-Poo we had to video tape this experience. If you fast forward in about 1 minute, you will get a glimpse of the 38 week belly :)

In baby news... Abigail gave us a little scare this morning when she decided to sleep for hours and not move even after putting on music for her, drinking orange juice, and eating a yummy egg breakfast. She was monitored all morning and perked up within in a few hours. She is back to her old, active self. Who knows when this little one will want to make her appearance, but hopefully it will be soon!

Fun family photos

A couple of weeks ago we had some fun family photos taken at the Lake by photographer extraordinaire, Darla Abigt. She has an amazing camera and always takes great pictures for us. Jeter and my belly pretty much stole the show :)

This is Rancho Santa Margarita Lake. I love living by it so much and walk around it daily.

Jeter was pretty cooperative but not the whole time. Its okay, he can be distracted by the ducks for one shot :)

I was going to just tie a ribbon around my belly but I decided to whip up a crocheted ribbon instead.

Hello Belly!

Here I am
36 weeks pregnant
Just waiting around for the time to pass...
Along with being 36 weeks pregnant I also have, swollen feet and ankles, major back ache at the end of the day, irritability, exhaustion, and I can't pick up something off the floor unless I get really creative.
On the other hand, I have excitement, joy, great skin, shiny hair, an excuse to just lay around, and a baby girl that moves and grooves around as if she is trying to find the exit.
All I can is, hurry up June!

Hard to believe that this was me, at just 12 weeks, when I had discovered the belly band. Now that thing is shoved so far in the back of my drawer I don't know if I could even find it. I pretty much don't plan on wearing pants this summer, only long flowy dresses, so its safe to say I have retired the belly band for good and it will just stay in the back of my drawer. It most definitely worked and came in handy when my belly was this small.

Blessed with another shower

We have been beyond blessed with support from family and friends for the upcoming arrival of our daughter, Abigail. Brandon's friends threw us a co-ed baby shower this past Saturday and we all had a blast.

Enjoying the sunshine

Here is Brandon trying to demonstrate a baby shower game... he cheated, but we all got a good laugh out of him trying to scoop cotton balls into a bowl on his head blindfolded.

Great hosts and great friends

Etsy shop coming soon!

I have a good little collection of hats going now, a beautiful baby boy to model them, and now I just need to take pictures of the rest so I can officially open my Etsy shop! I make all different sizes, colors, boy hats, girl hats, you name it, I will make it! Here is a little preview of a few that Graham graciously modeled for me :)
