It’s finally hot around here. Not that I’m glad it’s hot, but just that it’s mid-June and we’re just now getting hot. We had a rainy May. Anyway, our A/C at the house decided to stop working on Monday. Tuesday, we had Dude #1 come out. He said the outside coil was so severely dirty and plugged up. It would cost $400 to clean. He said we couldn’t do it ourselves. So we called Dude #2 who came out on Wednesday. He said the outside coil was dirty and that we had a leak upstairs at the inside coil. It was badly rusted over and we needed a new coil for a whopping $1200. So, Dude #3 comes out on Thursday. He proceeds to dig around at the outside unit and just starts cleaning it. $100 later, he tells us that we’ll have snowballs coming out of our vents. That’s my kind of guy.
Samantha has been doing well after her tube surgery. We had the Post-Op yesterday and the doctor said everything looked good. We’ll go back in on Monday to get fitted for special plugs. Her ears can get wet in treated water (bath, pool, etc), but not untreated water (river, ocean, lake, etc). Since we’re headed to the beach next week, we need to get some ear plugs for her ears in case she decides that she likes playing in the ocean.
We’ve enjoyed visiting with all our family over the past several weeks. I am glad, however, to stay at home this weekend. It’s much needed. Props goes out to my friend Kris who bailed me out today. Thanks Kris!

Hmm. A lot has happened during the last month. Samantha has really started moving. She’s not crawling, but rolling everywhere and “swimming” on her tummy. She’s also talking a lot. She can consistently say “dada” and “baba.” She occassionally says “mama” and “nana.” She is beginning to love reading, and even helps turn the pages.
We took a trip to the beach with the Betbezes and then spent some time with the Mauters in Florence for Lauren’s wedding. We had a great time at both, but are so glad to be back home.

We haven’t been home much lately, so we should have a lot of pictures for you to look at. Currently, we are adding pictures from our trip to Vegas and will be adding pictures from the Betbeze beach trip soon. Take a look throughout the site for your Mauter fix.
