Our Crazy Lives...

Oh my, its May!

I feel like the past few months have just flown by! Let's see... what's new around here... a huge storm with golf ball sized hail damaged both of our cars and totaled our roof. Thank goodness for insurance, but we still have to get the deductible together and schedule the cars and reroof. Sounds like fun I know!

Marley is really getting around lately. Still no "real" crawl, but she "commando crawls" and rolls all over the place and is fast too! She has an appointment at Children's Hospital next week where we hope to get to the bottom of this reflux problem. Fingers crossed it goes well...

Jaxon's time at daycare is coming to an end and while I'm looking forward to having the summer home with the kids, I know he'll miss it. He'll miss all of his friends and the activities they do at school. We're continuing gymnastics this summer, but have to get a schedule going to keep him busy. I was planning on soccer too, but since for his age its a parent participation class, I can't enroll him (soccer with a baby strapped to my chest sounds like fun, but I should probably pass!)

We lost our "sweet mama dog" Brina at the end of April to lymphoma. After 7 years with us, she was still trying to put a smile on our faces up until the end. We had just found out about possible treatments, when she suddenly had trouble walking and collapsed in the yard. It happened so fast. Brian had to carry her back into the house and called the vet. He stayed home with her all day and had to take her in that evening to be put down. We all cried for days about it, but know it was best as she was suffering.

Brina and hail damage aside, we have been doing well. Jaxon continues to amaze me as he is the best big brother we could have asked for. Marley adores him as well and I think she'll be scrambling to keep up with him before we know it. Looking forward to a nice summer with the kids and a nice vacation for just me and Brian too! We'll keep you posted (at least I'll try to post more often!) S
