Melting the days away…

Nothing too much has been going on here lately.  It has been so hot.  I can barely stand to go outside during the day.  Poor, poor Jack.  He must be so bored.  But he seems content and always says “Hot” when we get in and out of the car during the day.  But gratefully I can say that I am still not swollen which is sort of a miracle!  With Jack I started swelling at like 24 weeks.  So I am counting my blessings on that one.  I’m sure it will happen eventually though.  I am 32 weeks pregnant now and can’t believe we are in the single digit countdown.  It seems close, but still pretty far away.  Life is good.  We have been busy buying new furniture and attempting to install our wood floor.  It is fun to see our house coming together.  Here are a few pictures from the last couple of weeks…


Jack and I went to Temple Square one morning.  He loved it, of course.  He just wished he could have jumped in the “pool”.


Here is Jack being the “driber” as he likes to say.  He loves the front seat because there are so many buttons.


He has been obsessed with Daddy’s shoes.  He puts them on all day long.  He is getting so big.  He is starting to string his phrases together and answers his own questions and statements.  For example…”Goldfish, please?…Ok…Wow.” or “Puzzle.  I did it.  Good job.”  He has really been into singing lately.  His favorite song is Jesus wants me for a Sunbeam.  He says “Shine for him at school, at play.  A SunBEAM, a sunBEAM.”  Makes me smile a lot.  He is so smart.  He knows all of his shapes, over half of his letters and is getting really good with his colors.


The fruits of our labors…finally!  I feel like my parents have been eating from their garden for months.  We, however, have just picked our first crops.  I keep waiting for my tomatoes to turn red.  I love gardening despite not being very good at it.

  1. Hi Amy! I’m glad you’re not swelling – seems like that would be the pits. Difference between boy and girl do you think?

    Jack is so cute and fun! He sounds like such a smart boy! Seoul is starting to put her words together also… my favorite is “I don’t know” and she holds her hands face up.

    We are waiting for our tomatoes to turn red also! Our strawberries have ended but we’re playing the waiting game, too.

    Glad you’re doing well and your house is coming together!

  2. Those beans look delicious! Way to go. Jack is a cute as ever. I wish I could see him and Tommy play together at this age. What characters. Enjoy the AC!!

  3. Yay! I love your blog! I was serious when I said we would babysit Jack while you and Dan went on a movie date 🙂

  4. Love my “little” boy who isn’t so little anymore. I’m so excited to see him soon. Hopefully he will perform for us. He’ll be ready to start kindergarten when he is three! Ha! Ha! Our garden is basically dead now. It’s way too hot here!
