Summer is coming to an end and our pool will close on Monday. We will definitely miss being able to swim all the time but I won't miss having to babysit the residents using the pool. Ashton had a doctors appointment last week and weighs almost 21 lbs. I actually thought he might weigh more than that due to how heavy he is to carry around. He's really good at sitting up now which I'm thankful for because I don't have to carry him around in his carseat now that he can sit in the shopping cart. He still prefers crawling/scooting backwards but he can go forwards now. He just doesn't do it very often.

Kaleb starts preschool September 3rd. I keep telling him it's a different preschool and teacher than he had last year and he says he doesn't want to go to a different one. I'm sure he'll change his mind once he starts going. This preschool is in the same building where they teach gymnastics and so once a week they let the little kids go into the gym to play with all of the toys and equipment. Matt just started his LAST semester this week! At least his last semester at the U of U then he'll start his masters at the University of Phoenix (here in Salt Lake). As for me I just play all day with Kaleb and Ashton! If only it were that simple. But with the apartment market as good as it is my job is pretty easy right now so I can't complain.

Ashton's 6 Month Pictures

These are some of Ashton's 6 month pictures. He didn't smile as much as the first time we took his pictures but he still looks cute.

Before and After

Sunday Kaleb told Matt in church he wanted his hair short and spiky like his. I came back from my meeting and Matt had cut his hair.

Last weekend we went to the Murray Outdoor Pool. Kaleb loves the diving board and slide. He also started swimming lessons this week. He is definitely the most comfortable in the water in his class. One boy in his class hates getting in the pool. We're pretty lucky that both our boys love the water.
This is how I found Ashton this morning. He always sleeps on his side with his head arched back but this time he made it to the end of his crib and had his feet hanging out. I always wonder when in the night he does all that moving around. He's slept through the night 3 times this week which is awesome. Ashton is really close to crawling. He gets on his hands and knees and tries to move forward but doesn't make it very far.
I thought I would let any new moms know about these Baby Mum-Mum's. These are Ashton's favorite treat. I never saw these in the stores when I had Kaleb but they're rice rusks that dissolve really easily so he can eat them without having teeth. He loves them. I would always give Kaleb Biter Biscuits to chew on but they're really messy and hard to eat. These are really cheap at Wal-mart.The other day they took a bath together for almost an hour. Almost half of that time was filled with Kaleb spitting water on Ashton. He loved it and couldn't stop laughing.

I've tried so many times to get Ashton on camera shaking his head "No" but can't seem to get it. If we tell him no he shakes his head at us and it's really funny. Here's Matt and Ashton playing last night.
