And then there was May

Here's what happened in May (for those who might still check this blog once a month just in case I ever happen to update):

Abby "graduated" from the 2- & 3-year old class at Carpenter's Kids. They sang some songs for the parents, and we got to have lunch with them on their last day. Even Daddy got to come!
We got to join up with Tara and Peter in Memphis for Mother's Day weekend. It was so good to get the whole family back together! Abby even got to help Pawpaw make the shrimp skewers for our Sunday grill out--she was so excited to help out. :)
Logan turned 4 months old on May 13! He weighed in at 16 lbs 5 oz (77%ile) and was 25 3/4" (78%ile). He was already fitting quite comfortably into 6-9 month clothing! At this point, he could roll from front to back and was trying desperately to roll from back to front. He loves to push up on his arms and see the world around him, and he LOVES to laugh at his funny sister!
The kids and I travelled to Northwest Arkansas to visit one of my very best friends from HU and be there for her daughter's birthday party. I can't believe Hallie is 3 years old! Abby and Hallie are destined to be Harding roommates. We have gotten together enough over the years that both girls ask periodically when they get to play together again. Love it! Abby also came home from the party with her first tattoo. ;)
Linds & Tim
Happy birthday, Hallie Grace!
Abby and I were in desperate need of haircuts, so we both went in to chop it all off. This was our first time with Mrs. Betty, and we love her! She convinced me to give Abby bangs since her hair is always in her face, but Betty is in charge of keeping them trimmed every few weeks. I'm just not "that mom." My mom was "that mom," but she also has a steady calligrapher's hand so we weren't traumatized as children when she trimmed our bangs. :)
These are just a few extra pictures from daily life that month that I love and want to share:
Abby & Adalyn--best friends!
Their faces totally crack me up in this one. :)
Still to come: the month of June & the Curtis family vacation in Florida! I'm making progress, right??

Loved the updates! It's so fun to keep up with what you all are doing, especially since we can't be together that often. Abby is precious with her bangs! Definitely a good look for her! That picture of Logan on the bed is so cute! He'll be crawling before you know it. Hope to see you sometime soon.

Loved seeing these pictures. I am so sorry that Logan has been sick with strep; maybe he is getting better with medicine. Have a safe and wonderful trip up north.
