Year In Review: May

May was another semi-busy month with everything going on with Sarah.

Christian did quite a bit of playing in the backyard with his friend Madison and talking with the stuffed animals.
Here he is setting them up and was talking to the puppy. It was the first time I think I saw him 'pretend play' with some of the stuffed animals.

Sarah sat in a high chair for the first time! She enjoyed it a lot. She got to read the drink menu while Mommy was able to eat with TWO hands!

A few days into May we had Sarah's 6-month well baby visit. She was found to have bilateral hip dysplasia. She had x-rays, was put in for a referral for an Orthopedic Pediatric Surgeon consult, and I was left to worry my head off. Her consult happened at the END of the month so it was a good three weeks of me being able to worry. :(

And of course a few days before the consult, where we were 100% certain she would be getting some sort of brace for her hips, she starts to sit up!!! It was bittersweet since we knew she wouldn't be able to move much after she got the brace.

And here she is with the brace:

She took to it surprisingly well after the first week. We got into a routine and it became part of her.

And Christian got his first real haircut with the clippers rather than me hacking at him with scissors in the tub. haha
