My 3 Little Kiddos,
We packed May full of all kinds of things. We had a weekend getaway at the beginning of the month for Daddy’s marathon in Washington D.C., and then we finished the month with a short vacation in Williamsburg. In between, Mason, you finished school for your kindergarten year (what??); we went to some birthday parties; you both raced in Grand Prix (where you decorated your own cars this year); we watched lots of t-ball games; Mason had Grandparents’ Day at school; Mommy had the 5th-6th grade girls’ sleepover; we finally sold the Civic and the old mower; and Mommy, Elli, and Rylan took lots of walks together. Oh and we started getting trash pick up for the first time in Mommy and Daddy’s married life. So that’s pretty exciting news. Recently we’ve also had lots of rain. LOTS. of rain. Oh yeah and what would the month be without Elli having another ear infection? During vacation. It was probably the worst sleeping nights in a row this time. I think we need to check back with the ENT about how often this is happening and how much pain seems to come with it. Anyway, I think that was it! We had a really fun month together!
Elli, you’ve started to say “no!” in the meanest voice and stomping your foot at the same time. It’s adorable if you’re not the one being yelled at. You’re still not saying much more than that and “uh huh” for real words, but you say lots of things where your tone of voice sounds like you’re saying real things. You do also say “owwww” in a really funny way. You had your first hair cut this month, and although I thought I ruined your hair for a little while, it looks pretty cute now. You also look so much more like my baby pictures with your new bangs.
Rylan, you have started talking in a baby voice a lot of the time, and I have no idea where that came from. You are so precious and funny so much of the day. You have this problem where you completely ignore us giving you directions, though. So we’re working on that. You’re also very strong- I think Daddy is jealous of your abs. This month you’ve been saying a lot of “Do you even know what ____ means??” sentences.
Mason, you seem more grown up all the time. You’re so good with Elli and sometimes with Rylan, if you’re not feeling like you’re competing with him. You LOVE doing jobs with Daddy outside, and he always says how good of a helper you are. You’ve already helped him with several projects this month. You have had times this month where you have the best, most respectful attitude, and you are incredibly helpful. It’s pretty great to see. You still love cuddling with Tiptwo, and you are still too rough with him a lot of the time, but he doesn’t seem to mind.
Here are some kid quotes from this month:
I love you three.
