Okay, so it's been awhile AGAIN!

Click here for April's Pics.

As I uploaded some pictures from April today, it occurred to me that I don't think we have any pictures of the girls from May! Yikes!

A quick update on all of us: I had my hours cut at work a few weeks ago by a full day. It's an adjustment financially, but I think we'll be okay. I'm going to use the time to get some stuff done around the house that I can't find time for otherwise. The girls will stay in "school" twice a week in June, but then in July/August, we'll need to cut them back to one day to try to help make up the for the money difference. I hate to take them out of school, as they are learning so much. They love it most days too. Emma told me today that she cried for me at nap time. Summer is a great time to spend more time with them. I think we are going to hold off on preschool until they are 4. In the meantime, I'm trying to rework the Lil' LJ website and focus on that and freelance.

Here's what our smarty-pants are up to:
They know their opposites - up/down, hot/cold, small/big, high/low
They can count to five in spanish
They can both count to 15
They remember EVERYTHING, which is challenging, as even a mention of something like the zoo, is not forgotten :)
They know red means stop, green means go, yellow means slow down
They know the days of the week
They know all their basic colors and now we are working on colors like gray/beige, etc
They know shapes
They know how to use my iPod touch!

They were healthy for a few weeks, but have started up with running/stuffy noses again. We started swim classes too and took them for 6 weeks. I think they really liked it. All we really did was sing songs and get them used the water, jumping in, etc. Emma went under up to the top of her ears! Madelyn can't go under because of her tubes. She had one removed, as it was working it's way out and causing her some issues with the wax build-up. I guess it takes some time for the hole to heal after it's removed.

The girls saw their first parade on Memorial day and really enjoyed it. They loved seeing all the fire trucks!

Oh, and we raised over $1300 for the March of Dimes walk this year!

That's our update! As I say, almost every time I do post, I really wish I posted more often, as I would love to remember every single day with these peanuts and their accomplishments.
