Hello, my name is Suz, and I used to have a little blog.
And then I got pregnant for the third time in four years. And then Bo dropped his morning nap. And Mary Bullock dropped her afternoon nap. And then we realized that almost every room in our house is going to need to be rearranged to accommodate another baby. So my thinking time has been whittled down to: Oh, I should put on clothes today. And Oh my gosh how is it 11 o’clock already?
My brain is mush. But I do have pictures!
Kirby finally made it home at the beginning of May. His biggest fan was here to celebrate.
I made those crack doughnuts from Pinterest to mark the occasion. Wowza. Those are a special occasion food, for sure.
After a brief visit, Kirbs returned to California, and we took our first family trip to Disney World. We had a lot of fun but were totally worn out. Hopefully we’ll recover at some point– maybe around the time that our children are old enough for something more exciting than Dumbo! Although, when your three year old is squealing and looks like Dumbo is the coolest thing on the planet, you come pretty close to thinking Dumbo really is the coolest thing on the planet.
The princesses and fairies were by far the biggest hits for Mary Bullock. It was strange to see our normally super outgoing child become practically mute in their presence. On the shuttle ride home, Lee asked her what the princesses had said to her, and she lowered her voice to barely a whisper: They said it was a pleasua to meet me.
When we returned home from Disney, Kirby was back for a longer visit and we all headed to the beach for a long weekend. We had mostly great weather, and Kirby and Lee put themselves to work building a sand playhouse for the kids.
And then we came home and bought a minivan.
I may be officially lame, but the upshot is that if times ever get super tough around here, we could live in the car and not lose too much square footage. Plus the doors open automatically, which someone REALLY should think about inventing for the modern home. I have been driving the minivan for three days and am already rolling my eyes at the thought of actually putting a key into our front door.
And that was May. I also have a post in the works about the backyard garden that Lee slaved over this month, but it deserves its own post, so more on that later.
