In my last blog about stuff we needed we got a dishwasher from Matt and Jess, thanks guys.
Anyone got a couch (preferably a sleeper sofa in near brand new condition :0) ) jk, but seriously!? We do need some furniture out there.
When we got home the AC was running, we were like, WHY IS THE AIR ON IT IS COLD IN HERE!!! I looked at the thermostat and it was 82, what it is set to come on at, hmmm guess it takes cleaning like a maniac in 118 degree weather to give a little perspective.
Thomas is off to play Hockey again, but the game doesn't start until 10 something so I am staying home, think he is gonna be a little tired in the morning??

Here are the some of the things that he does now that he is 2 months old:
- smiles when you smile at him ( although this morning he was smiling at his "friend" the ceiling fan)
- coos and smacks his lips
- rolls over (tummy to back)
- bounces in his bouncy seat and swings in his swing (he likes to be on the move)
- still wants/ needs to be swaddled to sleep (even for naps)
- sometimes wakes up just one time at night to eat
- "listens" to new sounds (like the trash truck this morning)
- screams almost every time you click him in his car seat and then stops as soon as the car is going
- spits out almost any pipe (aka Binky) you give him
- loves taking a bath (he can be so disgruntled and the second he hits the water he is a new man)
- smiles at me whenever I change his diaper, even in the middle of the night when I don't talk or really look at him
- cries almost every time I put a shirt/ onesie over his head
Tonight we have our shower at church so that should be fun. This weekend we are off to go clean the Havasu house. Maybe even start on painting, we will see how things go. Hopefully the peanut will be happy in the heat! Luckily we have great AC out there.

Friday night we went to the mexican food place at the Mission Inn to have a little family celebration for Father's Day, my Mom's Birthday and Jay's Birthday, I brought my camera but don't have any pictures, darn it. We had a fun time. Kaitlyn and I had fun hiding in the bushes to take care of everyone's presents, she did the shopping and I brought the stuff to do the wrapping, we got a few strange looks.
On Saturday Morning Jonathan decided to sleep until 6:15, which is great but we had a yard sale to get working on..... :0). We have been having our own little episode of clean house for the past few weeks and Saturday was YARD SALE DAY!!! Would we make enough money to re-decorate our houses? Well there was no matching money up to $1000, but we made $1120, yep you read that right, here's the catch. My parents sold the trailer for $1000, so we made $120, our worst yard sale yet!! We had really great junk too.... So we made almost enough to pay for gas and lunch.... booo. Oh well we had fun hanging out and getting sunburned. On Saturday night we went to small groups. It was fun but Jonathan was pretty fussy, oh well.
Sunday was Father's day. Church was at a different time so we had a nice slow relaxing morning, after church we went to Target to get Jonathan a bouncy seat, he loves it!! I was able to do my fastest Target trip ever, by the time Thomas got back to the car after returning some frames with Jonathan he listened to 1 and 1/2 songs before I got to the car with a cart-ful (sort of) I was very proud of myself, I am so much faster shopping with a list now. Then we headed up to Cherry Valley to my parents house for dinner, then we went home for naps and then......
Thomas got to play hockey for the first time in.... ummm..... a year and a half. He was signed up to play the weekend after Jonthan was born with Jason so needless to say he didn't go. He was very excited but is pretty sore today. It was strange for me to pack up a beanie and warm clothes for JT with it being so hot outside, but the rink is pretty cold. I can't help but wonder if I will be a hockey momma or if Jonathan will pick another sport. While Thomas was packing up his gear Jonathan was getting pretty cranky I walked into the locker room and he was silent. I don't know if the stink took his breath away or if he will be happy there.... only time will tell :0).

I think the most impressive thing ( I am alowed to think that I am his mom after all.... he he) is how strong and alert he is. The dr was pretty impressed as well. He holds his head up like a 4 month old and forget "tummy time" because he rolls right over, which he has been doing for a couple of weeks but I thought it was a fluke because he is too little to do things like that. I asked her about it and she said the whole point of "tummy time" is for them to build up their muscles, so they can hold their head up and roll over, which he has already done. He rolled over for her on the table. I can't leave him for a minute (I never do anyways).
I had a feeling the minute that I saw the ultrasound and was having a boy that I was in for an adventure. Whenever I had a dr appt when I was pregnant she always had to chase him down to get his heartbeat. I always joked that he was like a tornado in my tummy. And now he is already rolling over and does a little scooting when he is on his tummy..... oh boy.......here we go.
I can't wait to see what kind of crazy little boy he will be, but right now I love the tiny little that he is.
He wasn't a big fan at first.... I was a little worried.....
But then he decided to think about it a little more.....
Yea!!!!! I like Rod.... rock on.....
Thanks auntie Kaitlyn, you keep me so stylish, my feet will grow into the cool shoes soon enough.

On Sunday we went to church and then came home so I could do Alyssa's hair for John and Janea's wedding, I was pretty proud of my work, it is the one style I can do for other people, so if you ever need an updo and want it to look like this.... I am your girl! We had dinner at my parents and then came home for a quick nap, we got ready and headed out for the wedding. It was a gorgeous ceremony and Jonathan slept through the whole thing. What a beautiful day! It took me back a little bit to our wedding since we were high school sweethearts who got married after college. sigh. We stayed a the reception for a little while but he was starting to get fussy so we went home to get him to bed. I also had to work on report cards so.....
Right before I took this picture Jonathan has his hand on Thomas' chin, so adorable.
Today we thought we had Jonathan's dr appt, but we wrote it down wrong and it is actually tomorrow. Can't wait to see how much he weighs, he grows so fast. On Saturday night we had to change his jammies in the middle of the night and I thought these ones that button up the front would be easiest, well it buttoned down to the middle of his tummy and his legs just hung out, so I just wrapped him up in a blanket. I can't believe that just 7 weeks ago he was swimming in them. I think there will be a ton of clothes that he will never get to wear.... bummer....
