He has also mastered the intricate skills of waving and utilizes this skill at all opportunities... He waves at the car, he waves at people in the grocery store, he waves me goodnight....
Also. Walking backwards. That is the new awesome fun thing to do at all times. He gets this sweet little surprised look on his face as he carefully scoots in the reverse.....
Good Lord, I need to go lay down. The cuteness is going to kill me.

These last few days have been just stupid-hot. Hot hot. I mean HAWT!! And I? I live in the housing equivilant of a wine box. Which means that... It's gettin' hot in here.
We finally broke out the " air conditioner" lovingly provided by our landlord. A stunning 1976 model "AirTemp". Yes, the air is cold when it leaves the unit.. and for like 18 inches from the face it is STILL cool.. But that air. It has an odor. Like patchouli.. and wet cat... and gym sock.
But it helps. The house is perhaps three WHOLE degrees cooler then it is outside & darn it, I intend to keep it that way! All openings to the outside are sealed from 5am till 7 or 8pm. Keepin' my cold air IN, darn it!
And. Because I've got class. Here's a shot of my windows.
Soon. Soon, I'll be breaking out the tinfoil.

both LOVE Caesar salad
Kael is getting smart, little turd. I can say "You want some Juice?? Go get your cup, I'll get you some juice.." and he toddles off to find his cup. He is VERY communicative!
Raegan is a smarty pants now too. She has recently decided the letter A and the letter W are her favorites. When we play outside with chalk she asks me to make an "A Lady" ( stick figure letter A with a head. She then copies the A part over and over.... mighty cute!
Both of them have really benefited from our pool time. Raegan is now fearless in the water, as is Kael.... which makes taking them a wee bit of a juggle. I'm outnumbered!!! But it is also teaching them to listen to me... If I say NO or STAY OVER HERE, by golly they better listen or we're going for a towel time-out.. which sucks cuz they can SEE the fun around them, just not participate in it!! AAAHHH!!
I' pleased as punch about Raegans potty training success. She has had a few night time accidents that we have dealt with, but really, other then the occasional "WIPE MY BOTTOM!!!!" screamed from the bathroom, I can go about my day and never have to think about her bowels.. which is nice, really.
I have cut way back with weaning Kael. He still nurses regularly early in the mornings.. and with the more recent news that the surrogacy might not work out I find myself actually... encouraging? those nursing sessions. I'm gonna let him take his time with it. He still needs me, why rush it?
May hopefully be starting a graveyard shift soon.. more on that when I have more information! But I'm pretty excited to be going back to work.
OK, that's the news! I'll update BumpFairy tomorrow with the final test results!
