Feelin' Hot Hot Hot

Not much new to report since my last post... I've been feeling pretty good, although this heat doesn't go well with pregnancy. If I'm outside for too long, it makes me feel like blowing chunks. In other good news, I went to my 12wk check up and heard the baby's heartbeat, which is the sweetest relief.

Avery is growing up so fast. She is 15 months now... She has been really working on getting some teeth! She just had 4 for the longest time, but in the past couple weeks, she has about 2 more on top and 1 more on bottom, plus she's working on some molars. And she has been quite the peach let me tell you! I feel bad...I wish they were just born with teeth so they didn't have to experience it later. She has been biting me too, which is not enjoyable. I smack her and tell her "NO that hurts!" and she just cries and cries. It really hurts though!! Ahh, I can't wait for the "terrible-two's"...

I have signed Avery and I up for a baby sign language class. I've been working with her on some signs but I don't know every thing (shocking I know) so we joined a class at the Monon Center. I'm very excited about it! She seems to do well with some signs but others she just stares at me like, "Why are you moving your hands so much?" She has been getting so good at doing hand motions though to songs. Her favorite is the Itsy Bitsy Spider. I love watching her get so excited about it! Sometimes we watch videos on YouTube and she gets very upset when I tell her no more.

I hate all this heat! I want to take Avery outside, to play at her water table or go to the park where there are water areas for kids. I just can't stand it out! Plus, I worry she'll get overheated too. I just want some relief... I guess this is where it would be nice to have my own indoor pool...
