May 2009

May was a very eventful month for our family. My dad received his bone marrow transplant and did well with that. He was released from the hospital on June 3rd and it planning to go back in for his second transplant on August 12th. He is enjoying his time at home and regaining strength by the day. We are all very proud of how well he did. May included the Mini marathon, pool time, lake time, and many playdates. We had a great month and here are some of the highlights...

A group of friends from Ohio came and completed the Mini Marathon (13.1 mi.)

We have enjoyed time in the pool at our apartment complex

Claire loves to splash around

Daddy is helping her learn to swim

Laura's cousin, Chelsea, graduated from High School

The lovely graduate visited dad in the ICU afterwards

Here is Chelsea with her family

Claire is still loving her bath time

Trying to stay hydrated at the pool :)

We spent some time with the Whites at their family lake house

Claire and Jackson share their first kiss :)

Claire started to eat with a spoon

She loves her little chair

Such a pretty smile

Daddy and Claire in the (freezing cold) lake

When Aunt Beth was in town we went to the zoo

Aunt Bethers paid to let Claire feed the giraffe

Miss Independent wanted set free to run around...so we chased her!

She certainly knows how to make a mess

We bought a swing to go on our balcony...

She loves it!

Becoming a bit of a book worm

Such a happy little girl

Mommy and Claire got dressed up for a baby shower in early May

She likes when Grandpa reads to her

We were also able to have some play dates with Korbin!
