hats and the south paw

Howdy folks,

It is, in fact, summer and here in AZ that means it is 10:00 PM and 90 degrees still. Luckily we have a pool and an air conditioner. The A/C only comes on once per day though. Turns on at 8:00 AM and then shuts off around 4:00 AM the next morning. Things are quite that bad, but then again it is only May.

Kendra and I decided to attend a local marriage conference called "A weekend to remember" coming up in June. There are several couples we know who are going and I can't think of a better way to "invest" in our marriage than spending a few days learning about how we can make it better. The timing of the conference just happens to fall in line with the start of Oma and Opa's summer break from their school jobs. How convenient? So they will spend a week here with us and a few of those days will be full-time baby sitters for Easton and Layla while we attend the conference. We are always glad to have them around.

The last couple of days were fairly uneventful. Kendra met some new friends at the Tuesday lap sit at the local library and they met today for a play date. She said the other mom's took pictures so i'll wait to get those in email before I add much detail. In short though, I'm glad she is making new friends and forming really strong bonds with the ones she already has.

Kendra brought out one of the new born hats the hospital gave us when they were born. Easton and Layla used to be so tiny these hats fit them!

You can barely see the little wispy hairs sticking out of the hat. We're happy her hair is finally growing in... slowly... Easton thinks he is extremely cool wearing a hat. He gets a big grin and giggles as he waits patiently for us to clap and cheer for him.

Layla is probably left handed. Kendra is... that much we know for sure. We suspected Layla is also for a long time because her left hand is always the messiest from eating and she grabs everything with that hand first.

As you can see from the picture Layla is THROWING left handed, which is becoming very consistent. Guess I should go purchase the left handed golf clubs and baseball glove now, huh?

We did a recount of Layla's teeth and she has TEN, not eight. Her molars are poking through so she'll be able to enjoy a big T-bone steak with dad soon. I'm just kidding. Maybe in a year or two...

Easton's vocabulary is officially too large to keep track of. I knew this day would come, but didn't realize how soon he would have such a long list of words he uses.

He doesn't like to hear the word "no", but at least he still looks up to me. :) Now, if we can just get him to stop biting???

Thanks for the comments and suggestions for how to get him to stop biting. It happens almost daily so we'll get a chance to try some of those out shortly.

Have a wonderful Friday and weekend. See you again soon.
