(warning!! This is all mostly for me to remember. Feel free to skip the boring details below!)
I don't think you would know by looking at our photos, but May was a rough one.
Calvin had roseola early in the month, which lasted a few days and poor baby had such high temps and felt just awful. Then 2 weeks after that Annie ended up with some sort of viral infection (upper respiratory maybe?) and pink eye on top of that, and an ear infection on top of that. The crazy thing is that she never complained about her ear so I never would have suspected that part. She never complained about her eye either but we could see that much. She is just tough. So stinkin tough. The girl endured 5 days of high fevers and never went on antibiotics...her little body was able to fight off the ear infection and she was fully recovered from pink eye after a week or so. Mike and I also ended up with the same fever, sore throat, and pink eye...but we weren't as tough. haha!
But in spite of all the sickness, it was such a sweet month. I'm learning to not worry as my children struggle through sickness and to believe God's goodness and sovereignty in the midst of difficulty.
Also, since being sick, we kindof got into an HBO mini-series called "John Adams". I have to say, I feel proud to be American! haha. If you haven't seen it, you should. And we decided we really enjoy educational entertainment, so now we are watching "Band of Brothers" (apparently we are way behind on this!).
Calvin officially started crawling in May. Actually, I'm pretty sure it was May 1. 8, almost 9 months. And now he is pulling up on all furniture, cruising around, and even pushing our little push toy across the floor a bit. He is SWEET and SUCH a mama's boy. When I go to him after he wakes up he will just bury his head into my neck for a few seconds...or let me rock him. He is still nursing tons and still not a great sleeper.
Annie is just a JOY. So fun, and such a little chatterer. We are working hard on quick and cheerful obedience, and she is doing so well. We love to watch her when she gets really into the songs during family worship. She is fun and we just love watching this girl grow up.
Well, I'm sure there's alot more I could include but I'm getting sleepy.
