37 weeks in front of the Vizcaya
John swept me away this weekend to a bed and breakfast and 2 days without kids. It was a total surprise and such a wonderful way to spend the last few days before the baby comes. I have good news, John was offered a job!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We are so grateful, it is just the company he had his sights on a few months ago, he really stayed focused and went after it and after 4 interviews, two of which were over 2 hours long, and lots of back and forth driving to Walnut Creek (1 1/2 to 2 hr's away) he was finally offered the job. It's a super company. He has to start on Monday the 13th, so that is really the only drawback with me ready to go labor any day now. He'll be 2 hours away, it will work out though, I just keep trying to tell myself that and be grateful to God for the job. I'm excited to have this baby soon, I've been having lots of contractions everyday, so I'm sure the baby will come early, but I thought that for Jack and Stella too and they were both late.

As I said before, you are a beautiful pregnant woman! I can only hope I'll be even half as pretty the next time around.

I am so so so excited for you guys, for the baby and John's job. Of course, I know you'll be busy when the baby comes, but let us know when you get a chance.

Oh, and pictures! Sweet sweet little baby pictures!

That is great news for John. I made the drive from Sac to South SF everyday for 3 years. It will be a little tuff and put a strain on the fam but you do what you have to do. Tell him to find a van pool or a car pool if possible. Just wanted to let you know that you are in our hearts always and we will pray for you and the fam.
