We love that summer is now here. We enjoyed a great four day weekend with Nick. He was able to work from home on Friday and then only had to put in a couple hours the next 3 days. It would have all been ideal if our air conditioner had not went out on us.
We attended KC Jiggle Jam, an outdoor family concert event. Jack did pretty well. He even had a few moves that I would have love to shown you, but I forgot the camera. He keeps me so busy now that I rarely to think to grab the camera. I wish that I had something that I could just attach to my glasses and I could grab all those "too cute" moments to film. Nick was talking about how those are the moments that Valerie always seems to grab of the kiddos.
Since I last blogged, Jack and I have taken a trip to Western Nebraska. He had a great time seeing everyone. He had a constant playmate which is pure heaven to him. His Gram has a great clock that plays music every hour. Luckily for him, there is a button that you can push to activate it sooner. He was able to scam out a few plays from his Gram and Tio. I think that his Tio really just loved to hear him say clock, which comes out more like cock at this point. He did have a bad experience when he was out at a party. We were looking at a macaw that they warned me would squawk at us. I didn't realize it would be so loud and in our face. It scared the bejeezers out of him. Now he is apparently afraid of birds. We were eating dinner at Mi Ranchito and then he spied a wooden macaw hanging on a perch in the center of the restaurant. It was over after that. Hopefully we will get this kicked before he deals with it while he has long last memories!
He also received a cute swing set from his Grandma Denise. She worked very hard checking ebay and all the area Craigslist until she found him just the one I wanted. He loves it so much. We are going to rock up our backyard so that he has a more even, poo free place to play. I am not sure when we will get around to it, but hopefully this summer. Nick thinks we need like 8 tons of rock to fill in the space! Wowzers!
We have such a bleached blond boy on our hands now. He is growing so much. We play outside for at least 2 hours a day. He really gets a kick of just about anything out there. He is also working on his throwing arm. He can get a ball to go about a good 10 feet. Now, it is just to make sure he remembers which toys are balls and which are not!
He likes to sing along to music with me in the car now. Unfortunately, instead of making sounds sounds he just makes an eeeeeeee noise instead. Cute, but it gets annoying after a while. I am looking forward to the day when he can see along using some wrong lyrics.
Hope all is well in your world. Keep in touch!
