Happy 4th!

I hope you all had a great Independence Day! The past few days here have been much more relaxing for me. I'm sure I said that in my last post, but it's oh-so-true. It is so nice not having to worry about the house (among other things).

I have watched my niece play in her pool:



I have relaxed with my hubby:



I have played some games:



I have continued to admire a cute little baby:



I have taken random pictures of my sister's tortoise shell cat:



And my belly has continued to get bigger:



Yesterday we just spent the day playing games here and then went to my parents' house (they live right up the street) and had a bbq and played some more games. A lot of the people in my parents' neighborhood set off big fireworks (they are illegal here) so I layed on the lawn chair and watched the "show". We set off a few of our own, though they were rather amusing compared to the other ones going off all around us. In all it was a good day. Today I am working on the baby shower invitations. In a way it is hard for me to do because of the... what shall I call it... paranoia? Even though all the odds are in our favor for a healthy baby there is still part of me that is fearful. But I am looking forward to opening all the baby stuff and putting together Dorothy's room. I am determined to enjoy this!

I think its just great that you are more relaxed now!
It sounds like you had a great 4th. You look great too!
Good luck with the shower preperations. I can totally understand your paranoia..I can't even let myself begin to think about that stuff yet. But I think you are definately safe at this point. Enjoy what you can and keep on relaxing!
