TAKE A BREATH

Thought I'd check in and let y'all know I haven't forgotten to post...

After a seriously busy week that culiminated for me on Thursday, tearing through my house and cleaning and getting the guest room and bath all ready. My daughter A and her hubby, K arrived for their highly anticipated visit. I get 5 days with them!

A is now 33 weeks along in her pregnancy and looks so beautiful! This is the first time I have seen her in person since her pregnancy. The last time I saw her over Mother's Day (for our girls' weekend to Vegas), she suspects that she was pregnant, but did not know at that time.

We are having a wonderful visit. Last night was the couples baby shower that her best friend and I put together. It was so much fun and they got to visit with friends and family that they had not seen in awhile. I stressed and stressed about it...wanting it to be perfect and a good turnout for them...and it was both!

Today is a quiet day. A & K were both feeling kinda icky, scratchy sore throat, and congested when they pulled in from their trip on Thursday night, and now A seems worse today...poor girl. Not much she can take for it and it's hard to see her feeling so yucky.

The weather is overcast and chilly (by San Diego standards) and so we have been snuggled under blankets on the couch with steaming mugs of hot tea. Nice way to spend the day anyhow....at least for me.

I can't imagine the excitement of seeing your daughter pregnant! I hope to see that too one day, but many years down the road. Enjoy your visit with them!!!

Congratulations to your daughter! How exciting. There will be a new member of my family soon, too: my sister-in-law is pregnant, and I will soon be an Auntie! :)

I'm sorry A. has a cold. Yuck. I've been battling a cold these last few days, too. 'Tis the season for them, I guess!

Have a great visit with your daughter and son-in-law! :)

The trip was great to just relax and chill and be mommied! Even though I was sicky it was nice to just sleep, relax and eat submarina!
