"The Dog Days of Summer."

D said that the other day, "the dog days of summer." I laughed so hard. He asked if I had heard that phrase? I responded with, "I think so, but not in the last 15 years."
(Images taken on my iphone...hence the poor quality. We look like we have freckles, but neither of us do!)

We have been having way too much fun this summer. Veva is such a delight. She has the happiest disposition and is curious about everything. She loves to mimic words and understands me so well when i ask her to do something.

D and I celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary, yesterday. It was certainly the best one yet. We had such a good time. He took me to the Lion King Broadway show. It was amazing. He bought the tickets, all on his own - no prompting. He is so good like that. It isn't the first time.
I am currently 3 1/2 weeks from being due. We are getting so excited!! We have really struggled with a name for this little guy. It stresses me out. D says we will know when he comes out. I don't believe it. I think it would be more stressful then. When the baby is here the pressure is really on to get him named.
I have been in turbo mode trying to get things ready before he decides to come. I am in charge of the International Folk Dance Festival here next year and you wouldn't believe what already needs to be done. It is still a year away!! I also need to have everything ready for my powertap/clogging classes to start. There is so much that needs to be ready, that I would normally do in the first couple months of lessons. But I have to have it done before next week, just in case I have a baby early. Hopefully he holds off and I am able to teach at least the first 2 classes. Luckily, I have a great assistant to help out while I have the baby.
So that is why I am MIA. I don't have spare energy to blog. Pregnancy and busy one year olds take a toll on even a 24 year old's energy.
