Almost Independence Day

I am now 34 weeks pregnant.

Last week’s ultrasound revealed that Spicebaby is awesome--she weighs 5lbs and is looking great. The doctor said I can “slightly increase activity” but that I’m not officially off of bed rest yet. So I spent Independence Day weekend testing my independence.

I walked Betty around the block. It was humid, and the air smelled of concrete and trash.

Spiceboy drove us to Coney Island, where I dipped my toes in the water and ate a Nathan’s hot dog. It was good.

I made gourgeres, which Spiceboy and I gobbled while surfing the Internet for baby stuff.

It was normal stuff. Boring stuff. And I loved every minute of it.
