I seemed to have forgotten that there are only 30 days in April. And all of a sudden it was May. At the risk of sounding super cheesy, I like the possibility that May holds. It's time to plant. It's time to watch stuff grow. It's June's last month of her first year and we're going to plan a birthday party. We're looking at some holidays and planning out the summer. It feels like a good month to regroup and reprioritize.
We spent the past five days on the road with June & visiting family while attending my Uncle's funeral. It was a pretty tough week, but having June with us throughout gave us unexpected sunny moments. There is nothing, nothing like the joy I get from watching her face be pleased with herself and she has just taken off in the walking department. She just wanted so badly to keep up with her cousins and to show off for everyone! And she gives these amazing smiles when you go to get her out of her carseat, like "Oh! You're here to retrieve me!! Hi again!" More so ever then before I'm feeling like "this is our family unit. We're here as a family." And I love that. It's now us against the world.
And also this cute video I snapped of Cliff and June learning how to share together. I was honestly worried about how they would get along (and let's be honest Cliff is still pretty jealous of the attention June gets) but he's such a gentle giant with her (and all of us really); I'm still super careful to constantly supervise whenever they're in the room together (and I don't leave them alone together either) but it's nearly impossible to stop them from playing like this ^^ they will pass a toy back and forth to each other for the entire morning if I let them. I'm hoping it's the beginning of a life long love of animals for Juney and a life long love of Juney for Cliff <3
Happy Monday and Happy May everyone!!
