May, in photos

Here's some of the highlights of the past month. I love May-- the weather is finally getting nicer, there's a lot of fun things going on, more outside time, more SUN!! These are just a few pictures of what we've been up to lately:

Mom's 60th birthday party, in our backyard

Quinn loves to sit on the front steps and watch the cars go by.Memorial Day parade

Skating rink birthday party for our friend, Parker. It was Quinn's first skating experience. He was unsure at first, but ended up having a good time!

Time Warp Prom pictures

Prom was, once again, a blast! I think it gets better every year.
The pictures are pretty self-explanatory. We got ready at the salon, had some pizza there, then left for the prom. (And yes, Brandy- the blonde girl in the black with the flower in her hair- is pregnant. That's not just a big pot-belly. haha)
The theme this year was "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun", so there were a LOT more Cyndi Lauper type outfits this time, rather than the prom formals we've seen in the past, which was a nice change of pace. The ban was decent-- same band every year, they're in need of some new material-- but the DJ was awesome. We danced all night, never went back to the table to sit down. What a great kick-off to spring and summer!
(if you click on the picture to enlarge it, you can really see the 80's details in the hair and clothes!)

bye bye bird couch!

The bird couch has left the building. I know, I's a legendary couch and all, but it was literally falling apart. The fabric was ripping, the buttons were ripped off, the cushions don't stay on it anymore, which makes it not very comfortable to sit on.... we've been debating getting rid of it for a while now and yesterday was the day.
Not to worry though, we still have the bird love seat. =)

sicky sick sick

Seriously, enough of the sickness around here! First Joe had whatever ickyness is going around, then Quinn had an ear infection, followed by 4 new teeth (lots of crying and drool.Ugh.) And now I have the never ending cold/sinus/allergy/whatever. So tired of it. I'm ready for summer and a lot less boxes of tissues around the house.

In the mean time, here's our little man on Easter, on the big-kid chair, drinking a CapriSun. He's so grown up!!

My very grown-up little boy

Quinn is feeling a lot better, pretty much back to his usual crazy self. He seems so grown up though! Just today, he's started answering "yeah" (he's been saying "no" forever, and nodding his head yes. Today's the first time he's said it though.)

He's decided he's outgrown his high chair; for the past few days he's thrown a complete fit at every meal, and I blamed it on the sickness, but then I thought maybe it was more than I put his little booster chair on the big dining chair and he looked at it and said "yeah". Go figure. He ate all three meals in that chair, pushed right up to the big table with me, happy as ever.

Then this afternoon, while we were playing, first he walked over to me wearing my tennis shoes--such a big kid move!-- and then a little while later, he got up on his own, got a kleenex, and brought it to me so I could wipe his nose for him.

He just seems so grown up today.

sick day

So little Q got hit with all the ailments this weekend: major teething, croup, and an ear infection. Yesterday and last night were pretty miserable, but by this morning I think the antibiotics and cough medicine were starting to kick in and he was feeling considerably better. However, not well enough for clothes, he spent the day as diaper-baby. Here he is, hanging on the "big chair", watching Imagination Movers and eating graham crackers. Can he get any cuter??!
