I had some things to drop off for PEO today, it was summer luncheon day. I was not sure if Lon and I could stay. Depends on how Lon was feeling. Lon was feeling GREAT! Lon had so much fun! We had a nice lunch of spicy fajitas, Lon ate bread, green peppers and cheese. It was very nice to see everyone! Zucchini was passed out, everyone got to take home a giant gourd!
We had a lovely time. Everyone loved seeing Lon. Lon ran all over the room we had for us, and did not try to leave the room. I thought that was exceptional. He ran so much! He walked back to the car, and I buckled him in. Once we got to the main street, I looked back and he was sound asleep. What a good little boy!
I have, well now had, a sunflower on the porch. I like sunflowers, they are nice. I came home today, looked out the kitchen window and this is what I saw. My sunflower is no more. Lon kept me from using harsher language. &%&% squirrel. Yes, I know I feed them. Yes, I know, they are cute with their fluffy tails and the way they knock on the door...

It was really fun playing with GiGi in the dirt. Then Lon thought it was time to come in and show us all how much dirt he accumulated on himself.
Yep. lost the the diaper and it is time for a bath! I think Grandma is laughing.

Since Grandma and GiGi are visiting, it was a perfect opportunity to work on Lon's tuxedo. I got it half done,the shirt (all those pin tucks) and cummerbund (more tucks!) got bogged down on the pants part! The easier part. I decided to stop for a little while. Grandma saw that I had this little quilt pattern, with all the fabric tucked neatly into a baggie. She thought it would be a nice thank you for the people who took them fishing, since the maxed out on salmon and halibut. Since I got some of the bounty, why not? So I whipped this up in an afternoon. Yes, the fish is all done with variegated metallic thread, there are silver ripples in the background, there are also iridescent waves on the borders. Turned out nice. Well, Grandma said, um, I think I will send them flowers. Yes, flowers would be nice. My first thought was, hey, this is not that bad! Turns out Grandma wants to hang it up in HER house. It is now in Virginia. Silly Grandma!
The toddler tuxedo as it is now.
After a successful wakeup, with hug and kiss. Super Toddler is off to help Grandma read the comics. A SuperToddler's work is never done!

We all went to see Dr. Sally. Lon, of course, Me, Grandma and GiGi. It was one full exam room.
Lon has gained weight!! I am so happy! He now weighs 25.5 pounds, and is 37.5 inches tall. That means he is in the 20th percentile for weight and still 95 for weight.
He is, of course, exceeding all expectations for his age group. Very smart, very cute.

What gorgeous weather we had for the Fourth! Not too hot, even though Mommy got sunburned a little-- could be that she got sunscreen on everyone else and forgot to put it on her own neck! But I forgot part of Daddy's too. We spent most of the day outside.

Even though we did not win the duck race, Lon still had a great Fourth of July.
