Hello August!

Hello August...only 31 days until my favorite month ;)

To celebrate, my family & I headed over to the Children's Museum in Houston for their weekly Free Family Night.
And OH. was. it. crowded.
And of course, I didn't properly socialize my daughter, so Sophia gets anxiety around anyone she doesn't know. 

Luckily, there was a Tot Spot upstairs for newborns to 35-month-old toddlers. It was much calmer & full of Sophia-friendly toys. She had so much fun, but she definitely got nervous any time another kid got close to her. Mamas, any suggestions for what I should do? I'm hoping it's just a phase!

To wrap up July, we had a series of family birthdays. Happy Belated Birthdays Uncle Daniel, Auntie Natalie & Grandpa!! Oh and Auntie Kimberly :)

Other than that, nothing too exciting has been happening here. 
We're just doing our best to survive the Houston heat. It's either triple digit temperatures or palm-sized mosquitos eating you alive.

Last night we braved the heat & got to have a little family date night outside. Sophia had a grand ole time eating her Jimmy John's ham & cheese (sans ham & cheese) sandwich and watermelon. Yes, I basically ordered her a piece of bread. Hah!

Sophia has also learned how to use a fork. Yes, she does have a piece of bread in each hand.

AND we finally put up the baby gate at the top of the stairs.
