First Swim (and other fun summer things!)
Well it didn’t take long for it to get scorching hot here in Houston, Texas. It seems like as soon as April was over and the first of May arrived, we hit the 90 degree mark and it just keeps rising. So what better activity to do than go swimming? And now that there’s a cute little chubby love baby involved, swimming is better than ever!
Because she’s got such fair skin, we went in the early evening. She had lots of fun and was very relaxed in the water.
We thought a float would be fun for her. She’s still a little small for it but she did seem to enjoy it.
We can’t wait to go swimming again!
Every day Cameron is getting stronger and turning more into a little person. It’s so neat to watch her change. She’s not happy with just sitting around and doing nothing. She seems to bore easily. She wants to go go go. She still hates being on her tummy but LOVES to stand up. She’s also a huge fan of being clapped for … the little ham, she wants to be the center of attention at all times that’s for sure. I’ve been helping her practice sitting up a lot lately. She has started to make some good progress this week but is still pretty wobbly.
Here are some other recent summer pictures of Cameron.
And just an update on the house situation: Things have been very stressful and not going so well with it. The buyers financing for our old house fell through twice and they’re gone now for good. We put it back on the market last week and just got another offer tonight. It was MUCH lower than we want to go so we countered and they’ll either take it or leave it. We’re hoping it works out but if it doesn’t it’s not the end of the world. We’ve stressed for so long about this that we’re just done with it and realize that it’s out of our control and in God’s hands. We know that whatever is meant to be will happen. The new house will be done in late July and if our old hasn’t sold yet, then we probably won’t qualify for both loans and will lose the new house but hopefully will get our earnest money back. Either way, we’re just thankful to have our families, friends and jobs that keep a roof over our head. We know it will work out the way it’s supposed to. If there is one thing that we have learned from this whole process, it’s that we wont be doing this again for many many many years. 🙂 Thanks for checking up on us!
