Budd Family Update

Well it's been quite a while since I have blogged. I feel like my life has just gotten so overwhelming that I haven't had time to blog. So here is an update on our family!

Lexi just turned 5 on June 1st!! Holy Cow how did that happen? She had her kindergarten shot in the spring and you would have thought they cut her head off the way she reacted! She played spring soccer, and is quite the player! She also graduated from preschool the end of May. She is playing TBall this summer and really likes it. I can't believe my little girl is going to be starting kindergarten I feel really old!!

Quinn is getting really big...she is 19 months old. In the last month and a half we have found out that Quinn had a brain bleed in the womb. This brain bleed has caused her to have Cerebral Palsy. It has only affected the left side of her body making her a Hemi Palegic. We have started with a program called early intervention, it's where they come to your house and do physical and occupational therapy. Cerebral palsy never goes away, but with therapy, they can teach her body how to live with it. This has been hardest thing for me to hear as a parent. You never think anything will ever happen to your child. But she is such a strong sweet little spirit, and she is going to be fine. She is going to have to work a lot harder than most kids, to do normal kids things. I feel so lucky to have both of my kids here. And that they are for the most part healthy. Because things can always be worse and I am super lucky that Heavenly Father sent these sweet spirits to me to teach and take care of. What an experience!

Cameron and I were able to go to the Draper Temple with the Epps the other night. I was such a great experience. I also feel so lucky to have a husband who honors his priesthood and can take me to the temple. We have been doing a lot of shooting bows lately because I drew out a general Archery deer tag and I just barely learned how to shoot a bow. So we have been practicing a lot. Its super fun to have something to do together that we both enjoy.

Quinn can walk as long as she is pushing this stroller. But without it she doesn't walk yet. But she is getting close!

Cameron and I together. We don't have very many pic of just the 2 of us!

Here is Lexi getting ready to play T Ball. She actually does a really good job hitting and fielding the ball. She got hit in the face the 1st game and it kinda shook her up a little!

The girls love to go Jeeping! It is so cute they just ride all over the yard. Quinn loves it! And I think it makes Lexi feel super cool!
