Standup Comedy

Sabine now has two bottom front teeth sticking out, not fully in yet. Looks like there is another peeking through, too. She's still not crawling, but she can scootch around pretty good on her butt. Her new thing is standing up and supporting herself by holding onto something. She pulled herself up once, but no repeats on that. She loves to stand in her crib and hold court. Here, see for yourself...

Grandparents in town!

We had a visit from Jerry & Carol last week. We had a great time, even though Sabine was sick. She had gotten a stomach flu at daycare and couldn't keep anything down. Luckily, she was in a good mood most of the time. Though she was pretty unhappy with us, because she was hungry and we could only give her a couple ounces instead of her customary 8 or 9. But, she was happy to see Grandma and Grandpa!

We were in the midst of an awful heatwave, temperatures were in the 100's, and of course very few people in Oregon have air conditioning. We have one window unit, which went in Bine's room. We spent a lot of time down in the Liberty Lounge and dipping in the pool. Carol took Heather out shopping a couple times and they both got their hair cut by Lucynda, who has been my go-to gal for years.

Jerry put on his handyman hat and fixed a bunch of stuff around the house. The big project was putting in the new front door Arlene bought us. It looked to be a straightforward job, until we realized that the doorframe of the house was extremely crooked. So, it took a lot longer than planned, but it looks beautiful. We had a great time with Jerry and Carol and were sorry it wasn't a longer visit. And 30 degrees cooler.

Summer Fun

Once again, late on posting, but will try to catch up today. We've been enjoying the summer, though the weather has hit some extremes. We had a heat wave where temperatures were around 100-106 for a few days. Right now it's overcast and in the 60's. Ah, Oregon. But weather was nice one weekend in July and we had friends over swimming in the pool 5 nights in a row. Or, as we like to call it, Lucy's water bowl.

Keith and Lisa came over with Walter one night. And the next afternoon, a visit from Ned & Megan and the boys.

Ned and Henry getting ready for action!

Summer means lots of trips to the park with Lucy.

And we ran into a celebrity at our friend's wedding!
