I didn't think I'd be here today... I didn't think I'd have to wait... I thought it would come as a surprise and be sooner than this but... today, we wait...
I am exactly a week from my due date and I can't begin to explain what I feel these days... I used to think of it as happening unexpectedly and that was all there was to it, but I had never imagined going to bed each night and waking up every hour just waiting for something to happen...
I guess I hadn't thought of this part and had always imagined it happening differently. With that said, I'm also happy my baby is taking it's precious time to grow and nurture itself all that it can... The feeling of staring at an empty bassinet... knowing that next Wednesday you won't be alone in that room... it's unexplainable...
Despite all the thoughts about the actual experience I have to go through, I can't stop thinking about how the baby will gaze at me and how I'll feel looking back at it.
Besides all the uncomfortable feelings of the 39th week of pregnancy... the uncomfortable thoughts of what my body will have to undergo... I can't wait to meet you, my baby... I have never waited for anything more important... I have never realized what waiting feels like until now...

I was thinking about writing a letter to my baby... and, I thought, what better way to do it than to post it in cyberspace, where our children will probably be living in 20 years. So, here it goes...
Dear Baby Benjamin or Nala,
Dear Baby Benjamin or Nala,

I am very excited to share with you my work, which has been used for an event planning/coordinating site by Christine Zohrabians. The company is called Fancy That! and they specialize in event planning and coordinating. I had hired Fancy That for my wedding day for day of coordination and, I have to say, it was so nice to know someone was there to take care of everything that I couldn't keep an eye on. I enjoyed my day because they were there and, now, I'm so happy to see that I could provide some of my talents for them to use. Good luck on all your ventures Fancy That!

As we get ready to close out Angeles Crest Art Guild Show, I can't stop thinking about everything else that's going on in my head right now...
Six and a half months pregnant, not fitting into my clothes anymore, my husband coming home tonight, the wallpaper that still needs to go up in the nursery, the work that needs to go up for next week's opening, the work that needs to come down at the end of this closing, the days going by so fast I can't stop to take a breath, how the baby will grow that fast, and, the one thing that crosses my mind every single day... the health of my baby...No matter which we prefer, girl or boy, the minute anyone finds out they're expecting, the only thing that matters is the baby's health. We think about it every time it kicks, moves, or hiccups. It's the "mother" in you that you become.
A friend of mine, Tagui Sarkisyan, is hosting a fundraiser for children in Armenia with special needs. She is working with doctors in Armenia in order to raise money and help these children in need. There will be an event held on June 14th, 2012 at the Brandview Ballroom in Glendale, California. There will be food, announcements, music, and networking opportunities. Tickets are $75 per person. Please call 818.468.9061 for further details and to order tickets.
A few words from Tagui Sarkisyan:

I haven't written in so long the whole blogging format has changed on me. I've haven't been too busy to write, I've just been living life without stopping to think too much... Well, now that I have to sit my butt down a bit longer each day due to the little human growing inside, I thought, what better way to spend my time than share this experience. Yes, I'm pregnant... with a boy... or a girl...?? We'd like to keep it a surprise, so I'll let you know as soon as I find out... Some say I'm crazy for waiting and some admire it but waiting to find out adds to the excitement of bringing home a little one. Right now, the thought of having a little baby at home seems surreal but as I begin to feel little thumps of hands and feet in my belly, it gets more real each day. So, I will be sharing this experience as the days and months go by and I hope that by doing that, I can make the most of these amazing moments in my life.
As I go through the experience of becoming a mommy, the gallery will be getting ready for our upcoming Mother's Day show in May and I will post news up as we get closer.
