We honor the brave men and women who over the history of America have protected our freedoms.

It has been a rough few years for the USA and mommy and I thought we could all use a laugh. We think the following is appropriate...




Mommy is finished with work and we are going to try very hard to visit all our friends this coming week before #2 comes. Mommy is feeling very heavy, tired and hot so daddy and I are spending lotsa time making her feel better. Only 6 days left!!!

Oh, Mombean can smypathize. Lots of ice cream, iced tea, pillows and a purring mancat helps.

(And she says something about reminding her about how hard it is to grow one of those blurpy things too.)

Happy 4th to one and all.

Happy 4th of July to you guys as well! We are so excited for the blurpy bithday!! Mommy says we need to plan on how to let us know #2 is here and healthy!

Mommy has been instructed to stay inside as much as possible and rest so we are having an "old lady 4th of July" as the ER doc called it. She goes to the perinatologist on the 15th (she is not dealing so well with the evidence of being a high risk pregnancy) for her first visit with them and the "big ultrasound" too. Fingers crossed for a girl alien.

Finally, we just picked out #2s welcome to the world present and it should be on its way to you on Monday (from Amazon) so be on the lookout. Mommy says she also plans to write you a nice long letter tommorow in the hopes it will get there before Friday. Oh we are so excited!!!!!!!!!
