Baby, Baby, Baby…

At Gramercy the topic is my no longer private parts.
Past my due date, so any day now.
I intend to work right up to the last minute.

Jeff's clients Mark-Paul Gosselaar and his wife, Kat, are also expecting.
We all go shopping and Jeff rubs it in that she is svelte at seven months.
I am determined that feeling the size of a condo complex is not going to be a downer.Tassos Nassos is Jonathan's father's name, and if we have a boy, he's Tassos.
Jeff is hoping I have a girl, since Alianna is a name he thinks he can live with.

Lisa, our Calabasas client, is back for more.
Her home's exterior will be a current project.
Gary her husband is all about the numbers -- the cost is center stage.

At Gramercy Jeff says he wants back in the flipping business.

Jeff is obsessed with my delivery details and the potential for poop.
I am living in a TMI total overload.

Jeff says "swap meet."

The stress of having Gramercy market ready is starting to take a toll.Dan, a landscape architect, joins us in Calabasas.
Lisa is firm: "Cut everything you said in half…I have a budget in my head that Gary gave me."
She offers an empty purse as a visual aid.
Jeff is not buying it.
Gary has left written orders for Jeff to follow, making it very clear who's in charge.
"I'm basically Gary's bitch" is the way Jeff sees it.
Lisa G. is stressing with every potential tree mentioned.
Jeff ups her bottom line by $25,000, and she is not going for it.

I have a “here comes the baby” drill list at Gramercy.
Someone might have to help me with breathing.

This is Jeff's idea of a pregnancy prank.
Jeff thinks Jesse's price will be right for Gary and Lisa G.

Gage has his doubts about a new location start over.Jonathan and I kiss our dogs and leave for the hospital.
Who knows if these contractions are a false alarm?
It turns out, they are not…the baby is coming! Why did I eat so much pepperoni pizza? Arriving at the hospital, I am terrified. My life is about to change forever.
Jonathan was nervous and ate my cherry slushie that they brought me.
That's OK, he is so lovely and supportive as the pain increases.
We decide to make it a Big Phat Greek Party in the delivery room.
Dr. Goldberg made me feel at ease.
That's a gaggle of people looking at something that is getting very stretched out.
1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10!
Push face (not attractive).

It's a girl!!! The greatest moment of my life.
She is a miracle, and there is no expiration date on miracles.
A few short years ago I never imagined I would be here, now.
For all of you out there who don't think you can have the deepest desires of your heart, please think again.
Please have hope.
Please expect a miracle. No Jeffery, poop did not happen.
Another miracle after all that pepperoni pizza.
  
Jeff is now an uncle.
He was scared to hold Alianna at first, but he did amazing. A natural.
We have been through so many ups and downs, this is a beautiful and surreal moment. Yes, my hormones are a roller coaster, but I meant what I said.
To have a healthy child and to have help, I feel beyond grateful.
I have the utmost respect for people (like my sister) who have children with health issues or are a single parent.
It is not easy to be a parent, period.
So if you can, go hug your parents right now as they deserve it.
I love you Mom and Dad in a whole new way today.

Alianna Marika Nassos (named after both our Mothers and Grandmothers) 8lbs 10 ounces.
Born June 29th, 2013

Thank you Dr. Jay Goldberg for a great husband stitch!

I love you Jonathan, you already are an amazing Father.
