We spent some time at the pool this weekend and Nicholas is officially a water baby!
My big one year old and I! I kept thinking that one year ago we were in the hospital waiting to go home and what a special 4th of July it was to bring him home that day. This year we get to spend it playing outside and eating Daddy's smoked BBQ!
Today we have had a great, lazy day, but it started with a little drama. We had lowered Nicholas' mattress as it has been necessary, but apprently he has grown a little faster than we have lowered it. We put him down for a quick morning nap and he cried for a few minutes. I was in the kitchen and after a while he quit crying. In a minute or so he was crying again and it seemed to sound like it was coming from right beside the door. I ran to get the video monitor, which I ALWAYS have right beside me except this one time, and sure enough, he wasn't in the bed! He had flipped out! He was completely fine, but it took me a long time to calm down! Needless to say, it is now as low as it will go! After that he went right to sleep and then it was time for some kiddie pool fun!
Tonight we smoked a roast in the smoker and had BBQ, baked beans, homemade mustard slaw, and potato salad with my parents. It was fun, but our little firecracker started wearing out pretty fast.
Hope you and your family had a very happy and safe 4th of July!
