Summer Fun

August was wonderful -- a month of our old lives back. Most importantly, Clay has been healthy and happy. Over the past month he has gained 4 lbs...even for a small person this takes a good amount of eating (and time). To allow for this Clay started waking up at 5 a.m. or so and coming into our room, waking JD up saying "I am super-duper hungry, we can go eat breakfast?" After a few weeks of this routine, we bought him a clock, taught him to recognize the number "6" and started leaving him a bedside snack should he wake at 5. This has been successful. Today he showed up bedside at 6:01 (bonus -- he has learned to tell time!). He is also up a shoe size and has gained an inch.

The beach was hot and sunny, and our house right on the bay. Every day we hit the waves at the ocean, collected shells, relaxed, and the kids rode scooters at night to the ice cream store. Who could ask for more?
