Beating the Heat

He Likes to Climb the Couch Into the Window...Like a Cat...
Last week, I posted about how hot it is. Well, it is still incredibly hot but I have found activities to keep my little man cool and occupied while I am working during the hottest hours of the day.  We play with ice, and water...we make a huge mess, but it is fun and it is a nice break from the scorching heat. Right now, I have three or four towels on my kitchen floor, along with several kitchen tools scattered about. I try to clean it all up every night, but I find that since we are playing with the bowls, and kitchen tools EVERY day, I just pile them up until our next water play time the next day.  We had a pretty good weekend, we got to spend some time with other adults outside of our house; which I loved! I think we are starting to branch out and make "couple friends." I made english muffins from scratch this week, and the turned out pretty awesome...other than that, no news for this week. We are looking forward to Cousins Campout this weekend though!! See many of you there!

July Went By

Holy heat stroke Batman! It is sooo hot in our house, I feel as if my skin is melting off. Normally, our little swamp cooler does a great job off keeping our house tolerable but since it is humid(monsoon season) we are suffering. The past two days it has been 92+ in our house for most of the day, we get a tiny bit of relief after midnight when the temperature drops down to 82.  Despite me love of lightning and rain, I cannot wait for monsoon season to be over. Anyway, it has been really busy for us the past few weeks. We have been all over the place; vacationing in Vegas, hanging out in Apple Valley and I was in Orange County. Not only have we been traveling a lot but we have been dealing with big changes with Aiden, he can now officially escape from his crib and pack 'n' play. He is a little young to have to train to sleep in 'big boy" bed but so far he is taking to it pretty well. I transformed his crib into a toddler bed, and so far it has been working out better than expected. I toddler proofed his room to the best of my abilities, put him in his bed and lock him in his room. I think he enjoys the new freedom, but he is still a little wary about being locked up.  I put him in his bed, as soon as I close the door he runs to it and tries to get out. After a few minutes he gives up, crawls back into bed, reads a few books and then put his head on his pillow to sleep. He is also sleeping through the night in his "new bed," which has made my life so much easier. :)  Hope you enjoy this slew of pictures as "catch up" over the past couple weeks!

Father and son on the swing, too cute! :)

He stole my seat! :) I hear I did that when I was younger...

He REALLY enjoyed dinner!
