Farewell Josue

Dear Baby,

Today is Mommy's co-worker Josue's last day at work :( He is a very good friend and I sure am sad to see him leave. But it's like they say, it's not 'Goodbye' it's 'See you later' I am positive I'll see him again and I know for sure he'll want to meet You my LiL One :)

Anyways, we had a luncheon for him today and it was very nice. Here are some pictures from the festivities:

Happy 38 Kid

Dear Baby,

You are now 38 WEEKS OLD today...woo-hoo!!! That means You'll be here in about 2 weeks...OMG! Am I even ready for labor? Am I ready to be a Mommy? Am I ready for you LiL One? I BETTER BE coz You're a-comin' :] Yikes! A lot of people are waiting and wanting You to come out like...yesterday! haha! They are all so excited to meet You already and here I am just waiting and letting You decided when You feel it's 'time' and what day you want to for Your birthday. I honestly feel that You'll come either close to the 25th (which is Your due date) or exactly on the 25th...I think--maybe-I don't know...eeeek! Ok stop, I'll just stop thinking about it now or else I'm gonna go crazy.

Anyways, here's what BabyCenter has to say about You today:

How your baby's growing:

Your baby has really plumped up. She weighs about 6.8 pounds and she's over 19 1/2 inches long (like a leek). She has a firm grasp, which you'll soon be able to test when you hold her hand for the first time! Her organs have matured and are ready for life outside the womb.

Wondering what color your baby's eyes will be? You may not be able to tell right away. If she's born with brown eyes, they'll likely stay brown. If she's born with steel gray or dark blue eyes, they may stay gray or blue or turn green, hazel, or brown by the time she's 9 months old. That's because a child's irises (the colored part of the eye) may gain more pigment in the months after she's born, but they usually won't get "lighter" or more blue. (Green, hazel, and brown eyes have more pigment than gray or blue eyes.)

How far along: 38 weeks

Maternity Clothes: Can you please come out like ASAP already so that Mommy won't have to buy anymore maternity clothes?
Sleep: I've been taking a nap when I get home from work these past few days but then I have even more trouble sleeping at night because of it...ugh! oh well, whatever works I guess.
Best Moment of the Week: Daddy and I bought You your crib...YAY!
Movement: I don't think You have a lot of leg room in my belly anymore...ha! Which means it may be time for You to come out of there...SOON!
Food Craving: Mommy didn't have mac&cheese :( but my cruisematebuddy Tina is willing to make it for me...YAY! I can't wait :]
Gender: Baby Boy Gaeta

What I'm looking forward to: I am looking forward to eating some good mac&cheese that I've been craving lately...haha! <---STILL waiting for it :]

Weekly Wisdom: I am trying really hard to just focus on meeting You and not so much on the whole 'Labor' and 'Pain' thing...eeek! <---STILL feelin' the same way...

Sad Saturday

Dear Baby,

Tomorrow is a sad day for one of Mommy's church friend and co-Sunday school teacher. Her name is Debbie Dugan. Tomorrow is the Memorial Service for her husband Sean. He passed away this week :( I'm still not sure as to what the cause was but Pastor Mary said Sean died in his sleep. Debbie tried to wake him up Monday night and he was already gone. Isn't that sad? I am truly, truly sad for her. She and Sean have 2 young boys Andrew and Noah and I can't even imagine what they're going through right now.

A lot of people will say that they would want to die in their sleep because you won't be suffering or won't 'feel' any pain. But then what about the other person? What's Debbie feeling? What did she feel when she found her husband dead? Did she automatically think, 'oh good, he died the way he should with no pain and suffering' or was she hurt and confused and sad and angry that the love of her life is just there...not moving and not breathing and GONE? Gosh...that is just terrible.

Anyways, Mommy and Daddy will be there for the Memorial service tomorrow and give our support and prayers for Debbie and her family. I already know I'll be an emotional wreck but Debbie needs to know and see that so many people are here for her. I know it's just not the same and I know that she would do anything to have her husband back but I'm hoping that all the love and support from friends and family will somehow make her feel better...even just a little bit. I also know she has her 2 boys who will give her strength to move on and live her life but I know hard it's going to be for her. I hope Sean will look down on her and the boys from 'Heaven' and be their 'Angel'
