we live in arizona, and that means it is hot. really hot. the thermometer in our car told me it was 95 degrees yesterday as i made my way to my inlaws house at 9 am! which indicated that by the middle of that day and beyond we would top out at well over a hundred and we did. but here's the curious thing about this year for me. while i feel the heat of it and feel that it is a little oppressive, i am doing so much better than in years past. it doesn't feel THAT hot. and i know it will get hotter, no worries there, but it does give me hope that maybe this year it won't be that bad, and hey i'm not pregnant in this heat, like i was last year so maybe that's the difference!
i just finished reading the Twilight books again (sans the new one obviously and i CANNOT wait. actually i guess i can, because i have to:)and it was good to read them again because i burned through them so fast the first time, that this time i caught more little things and i actually sympathized with Jacob a bit, which i didn't really do before. so now i'm all ready for the new book to come out on August 2! exciting.
here are some picture stories for you:
Ethan said his cars needed hats...i didn't really ask why, it seemed irrelevant:)
i was feeding avery one morning and she had fallen asleep so i was on my way to put her down when i noticed ethan was holding something on the couch, and when i came back out to investigate, he had a bowl of frut and several things of yogurt that he'd gotten out, because now he can open the fridge. he was very proud of himself!
i always put ethan on my bed (because it's high and he generally needs help getting down though not always) when i take a shower so he doesn't run through the house while avery is asleep. i always put books up there with him and sometimes a snack and the other day when i came out of the shower, this is what i found. studiously reading away....
the baby and the beast. kramer is such a sweet dog that he doesn't mind when avery apparently sticks her hand in his mouth to try to steal his ball. he is really so sweet to the kids, we are very lucky:)
