May Stuff

This is a pretty common sight at our house :) Even though TJ has graduated it's almost as if this next phase- job hunting- is more tiring, more work and more mentally taxing! We both expected to have a job lined up before graduation and that it'd come much easier- guess we were a little naive! But that's okay, it'll come and when it does, it'll be that much sweeter!

Yesterday we celebrated our 7 year anniversary!! Whoo hoo! It seriously feels like it's been at least 10?? Seven seems way to small of number, ha- in a good way. :) Since TJ is in Texas this week (for a job interview/shadowing/observation thingy) we went to dinner and a movie last weekend. Without fail, we're never together on our actual anniversary day. Something always comes up- it's a running joke. So grateful for this guy though! He's a keeper and as time goes on I realize how much more I love him and what he means to me and our little family.

T-ball has started!! So between two practices and two games every week, along with two soccer games, we're at the park a lot! It's fun, I enjoy watching these boys have so much fun. They were counting down the days until T-ball started. No one would coach Levi's team so I said TJ and I would do it. With our life plans so up in the air I didn't want to commit but I guess we'll make it work! 
We went to BYU for Benson to participate in a little study the psych department was doing. The boys acted as if we were going to Disneyland. And a little BYU creamery ice cream always helps too.

Shaddie and Penny are just barely starting to get old enough to play together. It's pretty cute to watch since you can't understand what Shad's saying and Penny doesn't say much at all. They thought they were SO funny lying on the stairs and wanted Benson to lay down too. 

After each of the boys' graduations, they got to pick out a book at the book fair. The lady there had these big kid books that were a perfect transition from picture books to chapter books. I thought they were so perfect for Ty. However, by the time we drove from their preschool to Costco he had finished one entire book!! It was 3 chapters and pretty big letters but still! So Levi has already inherited them and has read one over the last few days. :) I love how much my boys love to read. Hmmm, wonder where they got that from?? ;)

Benson turned 5 months old! He seriously is SO drooly, slobbery and spitting up all the time!! He goes through at least 3 outfits a day just due to drool. But we all like his slobbery kisses so it works out. ;)

A few weeks ago we sold the boys' old loft bunk bed that had a slide and got a bigger bunk bed that all 3 boys can sleep on. It's been awesome since Shad sleeps better there with someone with him. It's just funny how every night there's a mess of pillows, blankets, stuffed animals and boys. Sometimes Ty get scared and all 3 of them are on the bottom bunk. 

Lexi and I used Benson as a model to try on bows for baby girl that's coming in August :) I can't wait for her to come and Lexi and Shawnda were SO excited to end with one last little girl!

I finally got around to giving Bens baby cereal- he acted just like all the other boys. He wasn't really a fan and hardly ate any of it. We ended when his hand flew up and hit the spoon, making it go into his eyes. :)
