The One With May's Friday Photo Dump

Once again we had a very eventful month.  It's officially summer... wahoo!!  But before we get ahead of ourselves, let's talk about some of the things that we did this month...

 Lindsey turned 5 months old (and is now almost 6 months old... I can't believe it!)
 As some of you may know, she ended up being a pretty fussy baby starting when she was about 3 months old.  We made many changes this month (in hopes of helping her to be happier & more comfortable), and probably the biggest change was we got rid of this...

She's turned into such a happy baby again & it's been a lot of fun!

She also learned how to roll over from back to tummy.  There was no learning curve for this girl, she just all of a sudden did it one day & she has been doing it ever since.

She also found her toes this month.

I've been trying to get pictures of her eating her toes, but it's a lost cause... Every time I try, she stops.  Sheesh.

It's been so fun to watch Paige & Lindsey's relationship grow.  Every day (since Z was born), Paige interacts more & more with her.  This month, Lindsey started interacting back to Paige & they love each other   It makes me a happy mamma.

Paige has had a big month as well...
We played in the rain, did pedicures, read a lot, learned how to put a puzzle together, played with friends & had fun playing outside.  Oh yeah, and Paige learned how to write her name.

We also celebrated the first ever Apraxia Awareness Day!

We finished reading the Book of Mormon... okay, okay, the Book Of Mormon Stories :)

We also had fun playing at grandma's house...
  And especially playing with Grandma's new toy!
Paige finished her first year at preschool.  I'm so sad because I knew how much she loved it.  But, we got her signed up for horse therapy for the summer, so that is nice that we have something to look forward to!
I enjoyed lots of special gifts from my grandma.  They have made my house a happier place.
We celebrated Mother's Day (BTW... I have THE best mom ever!)
Rick's mom always takes Paige over Memorial Day Weekend.  This tradition started the year we all 3 had surgeries within 2 weeks of each other... and it just kind of stuck.  Rick's dad had invited us up to Bear Lake, so last minute we packed up the car (and Lindsey) and took a mini road trip.  It was an adventure (both Lindsey & I got sick), but it was good to get out of the house.
We started planting our garden... We still haven't planted the corn (we ran into some technical difficulties), so I don't know if we will get it planted, but we're trying to figure it out.  Crossing our fingers.

I've had more mommy guilt than normal this month.  Thankfully people write posts like these to help us through times like these. (do you know any more?  shoot them my way!) 

Oh yeah... and can't forget one last thing...
We also wore our clothes backwards!  :)
Next month we are looking forward to a family vacation, horse therapy (for speech therapy for Paige) another trip to see Rick at work & hopefully lots of family time!
