Happy due-date-day Baby girl

Yesterday was Baby girl's due date and, obviously, she decided she wasn't quite ready. We knew we needed a project to keep our mind off of "DUE DATE" so we made Kaak... Lebanese sweet bread! My mom makes Kaak once a year, around Easter, and it's very special to our family. Geoff surprised me one year with it (I went to work and he spent ALL day making it - it's a full day project) and it was the sweetest thing ever, although didn't quite turn out. Flat kaak. Oops. So anyways, we worked on it together yesterday and my sister and Kaira joined us. We even dyed eggs & had an Easter egg hunt as we were both feeling nostalgic. It was a great day and only one thing could have made it better. Soon, soon... (right??)

We spent a beautiful day in Santa Cruz and my sis took some pictures of us! Due date is only 5 days away ~ wonder when she'll be ready?!

39 weeks!

Here is a picture of my growing belly! Hub and I are hoping to go to the beach this week and get some good pictures of us together since we don't have many recent ones and really want to document this special time.

And here's a picture of Geoff putting together our birthing tub. Yup, you heard that right ~ a birthing tub in our home! I don't think I've blogged about it yet, but we're having a home birth! Once I get the energy I'll do a longer post on that, but for now enjoy a picture of Geoff hard at work.

I really have no excuse as to why I haven't blogged in awhile... seeing as I'm as Stay At Home Mom now. Well, for 9 months atleast. Yup, you heard that right... after lots of weighing the pros and cons Geoff and I decided it would be best for our soon to be family of three for me to take first semester off next year. So I'm a SAHM until January 2012! I am SO excited and falling into my new profession quite nicely. For example, this morning I have had my breakfast and tea, made dinner (crockpot masterpiece), cleaned the dishes and started the dishwasher, and now I'm watching the Today show with a cup of decaf coffee. I mean, if that doesn't have SAHM written all over it. HAH! I know the reality of it though... it will only be days (or maybe weeks) before me REAL SAHM job starts, because technically you can't be a SAHM without a child :-) But needless to say I'm really enjoying Maternity Leave and taking in every second of my freedom, peace and lack of responsibilities! I have pretty much gone psycho on just about every closet and every drawer (is this nesting?) and today I have big plans for my shoe closet. Goodwill is making out this week.

We are fast approaching 39 weeks! It's hard to believe that this pregnancy is coming to an end and we'll soon be blessed with our baby girl. A friend of mine asked me if I was "over" being pregnant and, believe it or not, I'm actually not entirely over being pregnant. Yes, there are some things that I'd rather live without and I'll be happy to leave behind, but these things are quite minor actually. For example, I wake up in the morning and I am SO sore I feel like I've run a marathon the day before. Also, it'll be nice to not get completely out of breath when I tie my shoes. So a few minor complaints, but I'm doing quite well for being almost 39 weeks preggers.

The only picture I have to post right now is me topless, so I'll wait and take some pics this weekend that are more internet approved & post this weekend!
