Adventures in May

Uncle Scott is back from college and came to visit. We took a walk around the UW campus.
Saydee really loves Uncle Scott.

I realize that I look a little crazy in this picture.

Memorial Day at Grandma's house.

Saydee loves Aunt Brynlee.

When Scott was here we went to a UW baseball game.
We saw the "Sea Robin."

Scott, Saydee and my frizzy hair at the waterfront.

Saydee girl on her little couch and her $3 yard sale dress. I love a good find.

What the...?

Ulcerative Colitis,a New Job, Easter, a Wedding, and Saydee Walks!

A Wedding:
My sister Lindsey, or "Lindz a Pinz" as I like to call her is now Lindsey Lee Landoe. She was married to David last weekend. They are super happy together. They were married in the Seattle Temple on a beautiful day. It was a super pretty reception and a lot of fun. These are just some random pictures from everything.

This Easter was super fun because my mom was the Easter Bunny. Saydee loved the Easter Bunny because she talked like Grandma. This was the Easter Egg Hunt at our apartment complex.

A New Job:

A recently got a new job working for the apartment complex where we live. We were paying $800 per month for rent and now it is free because of my job. I only work 6 hours per week and I can bring Saydee. I also plan monthly community parties, which is super fun. I also do a weekly activity called Kid's Club where school aged kids come and do crafts and games with me. I am really liking it and it is a HUGE blessing.

Saydee is Walking:

Saydee has been cruising long before she could crawl. She is now walking freely although she still crawls a lot. She is a little crazy though. Saydee likes to walk along walls and toys and then just take off running. A lot of time she crashes or falls. She is learning that walking slower is actually safer. She will be 11 months in a couple weeks.

Ulcerative Colitis:

I was recently diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. I had a colonoscopy earlier this month and they found trouble. Thankfully I am on medication that is helping a lot. I was so miserable for a few weeks before the medication started to really help. I will spare you the details. You can google it if you want. It isn't pretty. The bummer is that it is a chronic disease and I will be taking medication my entire life. I am feeling much better and I will be just fine. :)
