Weekend Shenanigans

So maybe the title is a misnomer, considering it's already Wednesday. Where does the time go? Where did June go??? The Fourth of July is in 2 days and Rockport will double (triple?) in size over the next 24 hours. This means we'll be staying home and avoiding all the touristy spots... namely, the entire town. I have recently seen people grocery shopping in their bathing suits and flip flops. These are the perils of living in a beach town.

We spent the past weekend in Houston visiting family. I also went to my fetal monitoring instructor class, which went really well. I mean, you can't complain about an 8 hour class that you get paid to take, doesn't have a test at the end, AND comes with free continuing education units! As a part of the certification process, I've already taken the monitoring class itself recently, so I'm familiar with the material (especially since I use it on a daily basis at work...), so this class was more of a class about how to present a class kinda class. Get my drift? The paperwork involved, the logistics, the unit breakdowns, and on and on. Two criticisms: the classroom was make-you-wish-you-hadnt-shaved-that-morning COLD, and nobody likes cafeteria food.

When I wasn't freezing my little pants off, we were getting in some quality time with family. It'd been a while since we were able to be all under one roof (my sister in law's family included), so it was nice to spend a day together around the pool, playing games, and catching up. Isaac really enjoyed the cousin time!

Speaking of... Isaac is getting so big these days. I haven't been as diligent as I would like taking pictures of him, but then again, they turn into little blurry blobs, because the boy is non stop. Proud/Biased Mom Talking: He has grown into the funniest, sweetest little boy. I mean, he's always been my little buddy, but something about this 20ish month age is just so fun. He's always doing something to make us laugh and will stop for a "mees" (kiss) and squeeze (hug) any time. He's still SO tall for his age, eats everything in sight, and won't think of napping without his gator. His 2 year molars are already on their way in, but I'm not surprised considering all of his other teeth came in months before their predicted ages. He loves splashing at the pool, swinging and going down the slide (sometimes) at the park, jumping, and dancing. We read the same books over and over and over again, sometimes in the same sitting. Did I mention he's pretty stubborn? Ha! He is our little mimic, repeating every noise and mannerism we throw at him. The funniest is when he tries to whistle to get the dog's attention. He puckers his lips together and says "WOOWOO" in a high pitched squeal. Makes me giggle every time.

I can hear nap time ending so it's time to wrap this up. I'll try my hardest to be more diligent with this whole blog thing in the month of July (4 Measly posts in all of June?! What happened to June???). Until then, thanks for hanging in there with me!
