SUMMERTIME

Those rolls!

Alice has made a startling discovery: hands! fingers! whoa!

And rolling continuously from back to front to back to front to back. She'll roll all the way across the room, and she bursts out laughing with every turn. She'll be crawling in no time.

The benefit of the heat is that she sweats in her sleep and wakes with the most adorable ringlets and curls.

Everett now asks for "backyard?" most of the time. We have a tiny kiddie pool filled with a good three inches of water, which is an endless source of fun. Daddy's figured out how to rig the hose so it's hanging from the basketball net, misting the immediate area to keep us cool. Everett will spend an entire day running in circles and squealing with delight.
