If you're in or around the Puget Sound you may have heard, we're having record high temps - into the high 90s in the city and 100s in the outlying areas.
For a week.
In an area that doesn't air condition homes.
We put a thermometer in the munchkin's room last night....it didn't get below 80. Even at 4 in the morning. Even with all the downstairs windows open (which I never do. Never. One of my biggest fears is someone breaking into the house when Jim is gone and I'm there alone with the baby).
She and I took at least two cold showers last night, three the night before, just to get her cool enough to get her back to sleep.
If I won the lottery today, I wouldn't even leave town. I'd check into the poshest hotel with working A.C. I could find. Then I'd figure out what to do with my millions.
I'm thinking any big dollar purchases in the near future are going to include central air for our home....seriously....
Babies and heat just don't mix.
So tell me...what are you stay cool without A.C. when it's broiling tips? I've already tried the ice cube water bath behind the fan one....it didn't really help much. I'm curious what everyone else does.

Time has gone so swiftly....it is hard to believe our little munchkin is 6 whole months old! Things have been moving fast and furious over the last month...work has kept both Jim and I hopping.
We has a wonderful first fourth of July with our little gal - and a visit from Nana (my mom). Nana and Mama took the muchkin out for her first trip to the zoo. She didn't care much about the animals, but it made for a nice little outing. The 4th also marked our little water baby's first foreway into the lake(s) her grandparents live on. We weren't surprised to see that she absolutely loves the water. She's always loved her bath...and the lake is one big bathtub her her. Luckily, she also has an aunt and uncle with a pool....so she's constantly in the water.
Here are a few videos we've taken - enjoy!
