Yes, it has taken me forever to get to our poor, neglected little blog. High points from our lives:
Corinne turned the big 2 last Wednesday, and Baden turned the big 5 (wow!) on Sunday! We had a space-themed party for Baden, and they got some really cool gifts from people who love them.
Corinne is saying things like "saw-yee!" ("sorry!") and "Okay, see ya!" She is an adorable two-year-old, and I am thrilled to have a daughter. I luh-huv putting all of that wonderfully curly hair in pigtails.
Jack looks so much like Baden did. He's finally responding to us with smiles, which is great, because otherwise he's kind of cranky.
John's brother Matt and his wife Elizabeth brought Alexander ("Xander") Mathew into the world on May 2! Elizabeth is a size 0, and Xander was 10 lbs. 2 oz.! Owwww.
My sister Keri and her husband Steven are the proud parents of Emma Kate, born two weeks early last Saturday morning! She was 7 lbs. 10 oz. and has a beautiful head of dark hair, looking like Keri's head on a Helmick body. :)
We've reduced the price on our house by, yes, $10K for quicker sale. We are simply ready to move into the new school district, and want to catch the buying season of the summer before it ends. We may move into an apartment at that point until we can find/build something that is in the location we'd like with four bedrooms and a more reasonable price. This has been a stressful time for us, and we'd appreciate your prayers for a quick sale.
My grandpa Don fell and broke his hip, but didn't seem to like rehab in the nursing home so well, so he left AMA! He's doing okay, and his spirits seem to be up when I talk to them.
