Sizzling Summer

We are definitely feeling the heat over here in Albuquerque over the past few weeks.  So much so that we avoid going outside in the afternoon and only spend a little time in the shade in the early evening. But the mornings are generally nice, and this weekend we took the opportunity to try out the new baby carrier Jesse got for Father's Day (the one in the Father's Day post was our friend's that we tried out to see if we wanted to buy one).  It was a success -- even more so than we imagined.  We joked that the promotional videos for this carrier always showed a baby sleeping in it but there was no way our Nathan would ever do anything like that.  Until he did!  We hiked for an hour and 45 minutes and about 20 minutes from the end of the hike we found him snoozing!  

And you have to check out this video (which is completely unrelated to being outdoors or hiking).  It is about Nathan though, and arguably the most clever thing he has ever done.  Aunt Janet got Nathan a shape sorter toy where the little shapes go down tubes and make funny noises while doing so because they allow air to go through a filter in the middle.  Well Nathan somehow stumbled upon the realization that these little shapes would therefore make great whistles!  Now he walks around carrying the circle one in his mouth whistling away!



  1. But it's dry heat, right???
    And Aunt Janet's toy is the best ever; who knows, he'll be a horn player like Uncle JP?

  2. It's worth every penny then! And he must be clever then...figuring out how to make noises with anything!
