July 16th is the day!

     Jonathan Petar is officially scheduled for arrival on July 16th. I'm having a C-section. It looks like Jonathan will share a birthday with his cousin Ava. They will be 2-years apart! Today's OB appointment went well. No weight gain, but that's OK seeing I already gained 30-pounds! I have a follow-up sonogram on Wednesday to check for placenta previa. My last sonogram showed that I had a low laying placenta so they just want to check to see if everything is as it should be.
      Yesterday's mommy brunch was awesome. A margarita basket continued to elude me. I won it an a mommy's group dirty bingo and it was promptly stolen by Becky...who enhanced the basket and used it for the raffle at the brunch. Even after leaving an obnoxious amount of raffle tickets for that, I still didn't win it. I guess it's for the better that I don't have that basket to taunt me until mid-July!! I did win an awesome photography package for JL Hill Photography. I'll use it for my maternity photos. With Lyds I used Picture Infinity who did an awesome job! I had maternity photos done with them, along with a series of photos throughout the first year-- newborn, 3-months, 6-months, 9-months, and 1-year. Here's the announcement they did for me with some of the first photos they took of her. I think she was about 12-days in these photos.

     And the Lyd-monster from Saturday DID NOT reappear on Sunday and we had a great family day that afternoon with ice cream and the duck pond. Too bad I'm not the kind of mother that plans ahead and thinks to have a charged camera for such days! Lyds had a great time! I certainly missed a few nice photo opportunities.
     Mother's Day is this weekend so of course we'll be busy. I think we're going to try to take Pete's mother out on Saturday and with my family, do the typical Sunday Brunch--that we have done for as long as I can remember. I'm sure I was just a wee tot at my first Mother's Day Brunch. Mom can answer that, better than I could remember. 
     Also Pete thinks we should get some painting done this weekend. I think we'll start with the bathroom. If Pete can get the hardware off the walls and spackle/sand during the week, perhaps we can actually get that room done on Saturday. I'll need to pick up some new navy towels for the new color...Happy Mother's Day to me! Nothing says Mother's Day like a household gift!! :)
