Trying to beat the heat

For those who haven't been checking the weather forecast for State College lately it is toasty here this week!  The thermometer has hit 90 degrees each of the past three days and it looks like that will continue for the next three days at least.  And "we aren't in Kansas, I mean Seattle, anymore" so it is not just hot, but ridiculously humid too! We spent a few hours at the pool on Sunday which was a nice temporary relief.  Our new house has casement windows which means no window unit air conditioners will work.  So I took a page from my dad's book on life "fixes" and installed a window unit in our front door!  You can see my handiwork in the picture below.  Michelle has definitely been struggling with the heat more than me...darn pregnancy hormones, etc.  Combine the heat with her trouble sleeping anyway lately and it's tough around here at night still.   The bedroom is too far away from the air conditioner so we blew up the air mattress and put it in the living room.  It's not pretty, and she did NOT sleep like a baby last night, but it's something.  The next plan is to buy and set up an inflatable pool on the deck or in the screen porch with a float. =) (you think I'm joking, but I just bought it on Amazon tonight!)

One fun thing this week is that we are indeed feeling the babies move more consistently.  It is funny because sometimes Michelle is feeling them and can't believe that we can't feel them on the outside.  Then other times I feel them on the outside but she can't feel them from the inside!  We both think baby C has flipped from breech to head down because there seem to be some definite kicks at the top right of the belly.  We will see for sure next Monday when we do the next ultrasound!
