Since both nap times were spent with me doing other things yesterday (getting ready to meet Paul’s sister for lunch and folding clothes!) I didn’t ever get around to blogging. So no Tuesday Timeout, but I’ll post a belly bump picture today.

Xander and his Auntie Ivy

Xander and his Auntie Ivy

Right now we’re in Phoenix and the trip here went really well. We only had one meltdown and it was at nap time. Other than that he was a little angel and has been our entire time here with minor exceptions.  He has absolutely loved playing with Grandma and Grandpa and all morning he’s been running around after his Aunt Ivy saying “I”. Not to mention all the dogs and cats around that he’s been having a blast chasing after. Xander is definitely a little animal lover! Luckily the animals are pretty fond of our crazy toddler too! We’ve only had one issue with one of the cats not feeling very cuddly, and with as “loving” as X has been I think the record is pretty good.

In other news, Paul has bought a roadbike since we got here, and has arranged so that it will get shipped to us once we get to Key West. He’s already gone on a few short rides and is going on a long ride this afternoon with his dad.  I love that he’s so excited about something! Xander thinks the bike is pretty cool too!

Tomorrow we head to New Mexico to see Paul’s brother for a couple of days. We’re stopping in El Paso to visit with a friend for lunch along the way and I’m excited to see her!  While Paul was deployed last year we had a standing lunch date on Fridays and I’ve missed her!
