May Day May Day!!

May has started out with a bang. Literally. Our trip to Chicago was good. Leaving MC was not as bad as I thought it might be. Coming back was actually the hardest part because I did not want to put her down. It rained most of the time, so we stayed inside more than we thought. But it was worth the entire trip to sleep in just ONE morning. We enjoyed getting to spend time alone and it just reminded us of what life used to be like before MC. My mom called us at 3:30 in the morning Saturday (the morning of Matt's test) to tell us that she thought our house had been struck by lightening during the storm. The whirlpool tub's motor started to run, the steam in the shower came on, and the gate (which normally opens out) reverted backwards hitting mom's car that was parked under the drive-thru. So we told her to call Graham (our builder) and he was already awake because lightening hit his house!!!! Unbelievable! We got everything fixed (and our laundry dryer).

I had to work 2 full and horrible days as soon as we got back, while all of this was going on. Matt's grandfather was put in the hospital and had surgery to remove a "mass" Tuesday. So Matt and his dad went down to visit him in Laurel. He's in recovery now.

Yesterday, Mati Claire got a tooth on top! And is working hard on another one so she has been in a foul mood the last few days. Mom and I topped off our week by going to the Canton Flea Market today!!! With a baby and a stroller. Never again. It rained and I will never take a child with me ever again. There is no place to change a dirty diaper on the Square. The wind was so bad that it kept blowing dirt in people's faces--so it was miserable. We did find some cute stuff though.

Now that I have vented and released some stress, I do have good news! Mati Claire's baby dedication is this Sunday at church. We're looking forward to it. Heather and my nieces got a new (10 lb'er) Yorkie named Owen! He's not really new, he's like 4 years old I think. But new to them. MC got to hang out with her cousin Kendall the day we got back from Chicago, so I'm posting a picture of the two of them. I wonder who MC looks like??? :) She can take several steps every day (today she took about 4 steps).
