Shake your tambourine
"You blow my head open. Of one thing I'm sure...
I do my best for you I do"

You know, it's weird... You grow up knowing your mommy. She's this magical woman who can fix anything, sets the rules, and can make any bump, scratch, or bruise feel better! Mommies are the best. While I was pregnant, I never thought of myself as a mother. I was just pregnant... I didn't want to think too far ahead of myself -- perhaps just being superstitious. And then, all of a sudden, on May 11, 2009 at 12:48 pm, I became "Mommy", and the transition from Jasara to Mommy was the quickest and most amazing ever.

Don't get me wrong, I still miss my sleep, but I can't imagine NOT being Addison's mommy.

Woah Baby!
I haven't updated my blog in forever... The last time I did was the weekend before I found out I was pregnant. Yep... pregnant... And in a few short days, I will be a mommy. I really can't believe that BabyP will be here in 5 days (or less!) AHHH!

This is very adult... I still feel like the 15 year old in the photo with Alyssa in my last post. Where does the time go??! Now, I look like this... ready to pop, weighing more than I ever have in my entire life, and ready to be a mommy! Crazy!

I was supposed to be in Austin this weekend, but Mother Nature got in the way. I was so excited to be there to surprise Alyssa -- and it didn't happen. Such a bummah, but there is nothing that anyone could have done to prevent or control it. So there's no use complaining about it.
So instead, I will post an embarrassing photo of the two of us... 'cause that's fun. :)

Woah, #1201
The good people at Blogger told me that my last post, the one from June, was my 1200th post. Sweet Jeebus that's a lot. I mean, not all of the posts were lengthy... most of them were dumb -- but still... 1200 posts is significant.

I don't have much to report right now. Matt's been home for the last week or so, and he leaves on Tuesday. Boo. But this time when he leaves, it's the last Avril run... So that's good. It's been a long two years out with her -- and I'm excited to have him home again. Let's just hope that he's able to find something local that doesn't involve traveling for months at a time. Ugh. I'm ready for this travel-craziness to be over and done with, thank you very much.

Speaking of traveling -- I've got a good number of trips coming up that I'm quite excited about... There's Secret Trip in September, then The Vineyard with Jen and Jessica the next weekend, then Boston to see Liz two weeks after that, then Houston to see Aimee, Cathy and their new babies (not with each other... with their husbands... but you know what I mean), then a little break -- and then to CABO for New Year's! Can't wait! ;)
