A night at home with Daddy

**WARNING: Long post. Make Coffee.**

About two weeks ago we had a heat wave in Bellingham.  We really do like the heat but Liam had a hard time getting to sleep, especially the first really hot night. I left for Bible study about 6:00 PM, which is a half an hour before Liam's bedtime. The usual program is as follows: 6:00 PM bath, 6:15 PM bottle, 6:30 PM bed time, and Liam usually falls asleep within about 5 minutes. So, lucky Edwin would have the whole evening to himself at home. Unfortunately for Edwin that is not what happened! This video starts over an hour after Edwin put Liam down for the night. Turns out he fell asleep about 15 minutes before I got home from my evening out. This is what an evening at home without Mommy looks like...

For all of you who are now concerned about our parenting skills, that was the first time Liam was able to reach the curtain and it has now been taken down!

And because I have not had much time to blog lately I am going to cram some other stuff into this post.
The heat wave lasted about 10 days and Liam adjusted pretty well. He spent A LOT of time in nothing but a diaper, which I loved. He is just so stinkin' cute!
Wednesday of the heat wave was the hottest day ever recorded in Bellingham history! It was 96 degrees here (I know that's nothing for many of you, but it's a big deal for Bellingham!) and people were melting. Lucky for us we had already planned on spending the day at the lake. Edwin's cousin, Darlene, and her family were passing through town for a few days to visit us and an old roommate of hers (who also happens to be a friend of ours) and the Chamberlin family graciously opened up their home and beach. I can't think of a better place to play in the heat!  

And here is a short little video of the battle of wills during bath time.
