4 Months of Cute

Leo is now 4 months old and I am madly in love with this month's picture. We had a really hard time getting him to lean back in the chair, he wanted to sit up and just continued to fall over. The girls enjoyed getting in on the action too, but as you can see we can never get a picture where everyone is cooperating. Due to this little problem, I use the majority rules rule, if at least 2/3 of them are somewhat smiling then it's a winner to me!

Here are Leo's 4 month stats: 27 1/4 inches long and 18 pounds 9 ounces (95th% for both).

Memorial Day weekend is almost always spent at lake St. Mary's and this year was no exception. The girls enjoyed fishing with their cousins - many fish were caught (to mom's disgust) and then happily thrown back into the lake. None of the ladies were afraid of the fish flopping around, quite the opposite, these girls were hands on fisher girls getting up close and personal with the lake animals.

Poultry Days weekend in Versailles is like nothing I have ever seen before as far as hometown festivals go. Everyone is obsessed with chicken...I mean it is "Poultry" days, but I have to be honest, eating this chicken for 4 meals in one weekend is a bit much for me. I can't do it. One, possibly two meals is my max intake. Not to suggest that the chicken is not good, it's OK. Getting out to the beer tent is by far the most anticipated event according to my husband. It's certainly a thought process as to when we go, Friday or Saturday? Who will all be there and when can we get there? Oh, the joy of the reunion with friends from afar. It certainly is a momentous weekend in Versailles. This year the fun and festivities were not lost on me. I came to bat and I swung a bit too hard....let's just say that I owe my mother-in-law apology after apology. She is a wonderfully thoughtful woman and I love her. Following the frolicking on Friday night was an afternoon of carnival rides on Saturday. Mya went off and did Mya things with the older girls and Nora ran from ride to ride with Dad. By the end of the day she was exhausted but overjoyed by the afternoon. When asked if she had fun, she replied "Not really," which is her way of saying yes, but not wanting to admit it.
