Odds & Ends of May

This month is by far the busiest month and to say that I am glad its over is an understatement.  Don't get me wrong, I LOVE MAY, its one of my favorite months.  But I'm ready for school to be out, I'm ready for the summer fun, I'm ready for warm weather, I'm for the park, splash pad and lake. 

Here are some things I didn't ever blog about, because life flies by you and before you know it, its the 31st.

First thing:

Two weeks ago I bought the boys their Birthday gifts.  Jax has been dying to have rollerblades, I wasn't sure about it at first and didn't want to get them, but the more I thought about it, the more I thought...WHY NOT?

Ashton decided her wanted rollerskates for his Birthday and so I took care of both of their Birthday presents at that time.  Three Birthdays in one month can just about kill you.

Next thing:

Lex had her three year old well child check, we got both bad news and good news, it never fails, I guess we are suppose to keep Primary Children's in business.

The Good: 

She is in the 52 percentile for weight and the 92 percentile for height, poor girl unfortunately is going to be super tall.  Doctor said she is EXTREMELY smart, talks so well and he is amazed at how far she has come and how much she does for being a preemie.  Sometimes I have to remind myself she was born 6 weeks early.

The bad:

Her heart sounds bad again, it could mean a number of things.  The doctor was sure the murmur would NEVER close up, but he wasn't worried.  He said it sounds like her pulmonary stenosis is back also.  The PDA and PFO are the murmur and they will either close up later or never and they will only do something about it if she starts having problems.  So back to cardiology we go. 

The other bad news, she is also seeing an orthopedic surgeon at Primarys.  I never thought this condition would last longer than 2 honestly, so I never worried about it.  But her hips ache and her feet, she turns in her right foot pretty bad and throws it when she runs.  So it could mean that hip surgery is in Lex near future.  I am not worrying myself YET.  I know how this crazy medical stuff goes.  I get myself worried and it all works out.  We'll just deal with it as it goes.  

Lex is doing good, so thats part of the reason for not worrying.  She is a normal 3 year old girl full of life.

Other random stuff:

I've been reading these books, amazing and hard to put down is what I can say without giving away too much.

And today, I took all three monkeys to the splash pad, they loved it.

Not the best pictures, I left my camera at home and well Instagram seems to be the popular thing right now.

Other random things:

Jax had water day and I called it, I said he would be soak and wet and well.....HE WAS SOAK AND WET!!!

And last week, Misty and I went shopping at City Creek, loved it and I got some super cute cheap earrings.  I wasn't sure about going there, everyone talked about it only having expensive stores, but I found the best deals there.  My new favorite store is H&M.

Good-bye May, its been nice.

It's so fun following you on instagram cause I totally feel like I am in the know on all of this stuff already! I know I am so lame.....

Poor Lex, I bet that was not welcome news....but knowing that girl she will just keep plugging along just like she always does.

Have you tried Forever 21? Cheap, cheap, cheap and cute! I got four new shirts for $54.00 and I love them all!
