I haven’t been paying much attention to the calendar lately and summer is now almost over. I feel like I should have done more with the time I was given, but can’t do much about it now. Hopefully we will be able to get some more nice weather and make the most of it. We had HOT weather last week—at least for us. We went swimming at the lake a couple of times—which was so nice (thanks Cathy)! There’s no better way to spend a 90+ degree day. Also that week, my friend Becky and I went to see Stephenie Meyer at Benaroya Hall. It was fun to get out and do something fun.
Roxie had her 6 month checkup and shots this week. She was pretty brave. Alice sure loved it—the Dr. gave her a cookie, stickers, and a band-aid. Roxie is the same length and a couple pounds heavier than Alice was at that age (shocker). She’s a tub—she can roll over, but prefers not to because it takes too much effort. It is too hard for her to lift her body, so crawling is out. She doesn’t really like sitting either because it is hard when you have a large stomach. What she really likes is eating. So far green beans are the only thing she won’t do. Tonight we went to 7-Eleven and got slurpees. As soon as she saw me (and everyone else drinking one) she grabbed for mine. I pulled it away and she screamed. So, I let her have at it—just to see what would happen. She grabbed it and somehow got the straw in her mouth. If she knew how to drink with one, I’m she would’ve emptied my cup. Luckily she hasn’t figured it out yet. Plus, I’m sure slurpees aren’t the best food for kids her age. Anyhow, as we browsed the candy aisle, she took about 4 more cracks at trying to drink from the straw then gave up.
Alice went to a fun little summer camp a couple of weeks ago and the last day they did a little performance. Check out my youtube page if you’d like to see it. You can also view a portion of the Q&A with Stephenie Meyer if you are a Twilighter.
