Man....it is H-O-T!!!!!

So I guess Kansas City has been relocated to the surface of the sun! The temperatures here have been insane. It is in the 80s when Ethan and I get up around 6:15am and it just goes up from there. EEK! And the heat index has been hovering around 110*.

So we have been going swimming with Ethan's friend Paige. She LOVES the water, but he is just not so sure. The first few times he clung to my neck like a monkey (that's why there are no pictures!!). But slowly, he is getting used to the idea of being in the water.

Last week we tried out his new hippo pool! I personally think it is the coolest thing ever and I'm super jealous that my body won't fit comfortably in there! There is even a hook-up on the underpart that will spray up a water spout. Needless to say, we did not get a chance to try that out just yet!

The hippo pool!

Ethan all ready to try out the new hippo pool! Note that he is still happy!!

Ethan just 3 seconds after he got in the pool.

So.....the hippo pool sits empty in the garage. Maybe we will try again this weekend.

Today we went swimming with Paige. Ethan borrowed her floatie and actually enjoyed moving around in the water!!

Is that a smile?!?! In the pool?!?!?

Swimming makes him hungry! Goldfish are the perfect snack!

So that's what we have been up to. Ethan is getting his 1yr pictures done on Sunday by my friend, Kentiga! She did his pictures back around 3.5 months and we think she is super talented!! We can hardly believe that in just 2 weeks and a few days, our little guy is going to be a year old. Unreal!!
