It’s Almost Time!

May 9, 2012

39 weeks today! I’ll be going in on Thursday for my scheduled c-section!! I wanted to thank you all dear readers for following my blog, commenting and for your overall support these past four months. This time blogging has truly been a discovery for me…allowing me to mesh together all of my passions…writing, photography, decorating, party ideas, literature and MOTHERING. Everything combined has made a difference in my parenting and in my personal growth. I want to thank my friend Celeste for all the inspiration and “meetings” on blogging! When will we get a chance for another coffee?!?!?! My compadre Mike Lambert for gosh… everything! I once lost my whole blog on WordPress and he saved me…in minutes!!! Thank you Mike! And Jose, an amazing father, my biggest cheerleader and truly my best friend…I love you so much. Finally, my Chicago girls, I think of all of you every time I write. They know who they are! I feel like I just won an Oscar and this is my acceptance speech…hahaha!!! No, I just won another baby boy and a happier me.

Your friend,


P.s!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have posts lined up or “scheduled” to publish here on My Friend Betty Says… Don’t think I was nursing on a hospital bed somewhere in New Jersey typing away. So please keep coming back to see what I’ve done, keep commenting and share please! Love you all! xoxo

    Good morning! What a great speech ;). Thank you for giving me something good to read early in the morning. You’re like my daily newspaper. I looks forward to yor blogs daily, before my 30 students come in :). Suerte on your new arrival. You picked the perfect day for the perfect ending in child bearing… Mother’s Day (Mexico). Sending you tons of xoxoxo. Btw, you look amazing 🙂
