August is WAY Too Long

Honestly, this month never seems to end! It is hot and kind of boring since we didn't have any trips to shake things up.

So here are a few things we have been doing this month.

JD and I went to Anna Claire's birthday on Saturday. Anna Claire is one of our sweet Baby Boot Camp friends. Her mommy is a fellow Chi Omega and we have lots of fun in class together! Here is a pic of JD enjoying some time on their prayer bench with some other kiddos (including another friend from BBC - Cole).

JD also got a haircut this week! I have been putting it off forever because August is the back-to-school haircut month, so it is crazy to go anywhere near a kids' hair salon. So we waited until the first day of school and went in the afternoon. Not a kid in sight! Here is a before and after shot.

And today, we spent some time with JD's cousin Marin Clare. In the past, these two haven't always gotten along (Marin has booted JD in the face and JD has pulled her hair and pinched her and probably some other things I haven't seen), mostly because they are only 5 weeks apart and going through all of the same issues at the same time.

But today, they got along like best buddies. They shared toys pretty well and chased each other around the room, giggling and laughing. JD gave Marin a ride on his FAVORITE toy, the firetruck.

Marin enjoyed trying on JD's cowboy hat and boogying down to the Wiggles. I thought it was funny that Marin played with JD's toys the same way that he plays with them - in a very non-conventional fashion. Did you know that the Little People trees are great to talk into because it sounds really weird since there is a hollow center? Both kids tried this out.

Anyway, there really isn't much going on in our world right now. I'm just glad that there are only five more days left in August. Surely September will bring some excitement into our lives!

He is so cute with his new haircut! I will try to hold off for a year with Hamilton, but I don't know if he will go another month!
