My Mother's Day

So, what do you do on Mother's Day when you're a week past your due date and it's beautiful outside? You put a bikini on and flaunt that sucker while bobbing in a kiddi pool with your daughter. Duh!!! 

While I would have loved to have had a new healthy baby to hold for Mother's Day, my day was perfect!!! Philipe worked 24 hours overtime the day before so he was exhausted. He came home with cards and presents and we all hung out for a while. He looked pitiful after only getting 5 hours sleep in 2 days (which is probably about equal to what I've had, but you know it's way worse for men) so I told him to go take a nap. Bri and I hung out outside for a while. My mom came over with a new kiddi pool and that's where we hung out for most of the day. It was perfect! Best Mother's Day ever! Enjoy some pics....

41 weeks of beautiful fullness!

Look, Ma... a net!


and again... just in case you didn't get it the first time ;)

There's Mama!

a popsicle: perfect ending to some fun in the sun

followed by a nap cuddled up to Daddy

Once everyone woke up from their naps (Philipe got to take another nap...lucky dog) we went to my in-laws. We hung out at the Tiki and enjoyed some "Hurricanes" chicken wings for dinner. I was having pretty good contractions the whole time but of course they stopped. 

That was my Mother's Day. It was perfect and I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful family. I know it's a day to celebrate Mother's but I really felt I spent a lot of the day trying to appreciate Brianna and show her thanks for making me a mom. It's the best thing that's ever happened to me and she's made this whole journey amazing. I don't know how I lived so long with out her. I hope all you other mommies enjoyed your Mother's Day as much as I did.

BEAUTIFUL!!!! Both you and your words, especially coming from an overdue Momma. You rock Trish! Keep up that good attitude, here's hoping the birth is wonderful. =)

You look radiant! And Bri is the cutest little one ever. Glad you had an awesome mama's day!

Your photographer did a wonderful job capturing your radiance.

I can tell a lot from late pregnancy photos about what is going on in the womb. Your baby is snug and happy.

...maybe to comfy...

Not much longer...
