the heat of the summer

Hello!  These days are passing so quickly, and in such a tumult.  Most days, we get to the end and have a  "Whew!! we made it!" moment. Every day seems full right to the end.
What are we up to?
Jai is working lots, stacking mountainous piles of firewood, planning Dayliner shows, and fitting in all the usual household chores.
Holly is babbling like crazy - things that definitely sound like stories, if only we were smart enough to understand them.  And she is currently lying on the living room floor, happily scooching about.  She's not crawling yet, but she can now drag herself across the room, and get just about anywhere she likes.  Which is something we are not even close to ready for.  Yikes.  Most mornings when I go in to get her, she is sitting up in her bed, trying to amuse herself.
Griffin has been growing and changing so fast.  Everything is "why" these days.  "Why is it raining?" "Why is it dinner time?"  "Why do we all eat at the same time?"  Any answer you can provide will provoke a new "why?" question, and it usually all ends in me saying "It just is."  He's been wearing underwear exclusively for almost a week now, and is excited about his forthcoming promised potty party.
 
And me, I sometimes feel like a chicken with it's head cut off, running around in crazy circles.  Summer is just like that, I guess. I've been busy with the business, doing all sorts of different work.  I had two weddings in the city with Emma Rose, have been answering a lot of e-mails, and have agreed to be the official photographer of the Lawrencetown Exhibition, which has been a little crazy, to say the least (and it hasn't even started yet!)  Don't get me started on laundry.  And all the food that's in season, that I feel I should be putting away, but is currently filling the fridge until I (hopefully) get around to it!  Plus pulling a million and two things out of Holly's mouth on a daily basis.

I'm sure we were much more organized with Griffin.  Ha!  That's probably not true at all!  But he was less mobile.  Plus it's been very, very hot.  These are the days that make winter seem so sweet.

Not that I want to complain too much.  Summer definitely has it's up-sides!
