May seemed to fly by! Between work, school, play time and getting ready for baby, the end of the month (and brother arrived quickly)!

This is one of Cate's favorite games...ride on dad's shoulders and have Maggie chase us to get the soccer ball.

Pretty girl.

Family photo at a brunch our friends hosted in early May to get ready for baby brother's arrival.

It was a mustache bash!

Can you tell she's a bit smitten with Parker?

Yummy cake!

My awesome friends (minus Sarah R who was busy working).

Cate swimming on "vacation" - the week before baby brother arrived, we had to move out of our house so the floors could be replaced due to water damage. So, we spent the week at a hotel on "vacation". Cate thought it was great, and even moved to a big girl bed that week!

One last photo as a family of 3 the night before brother's arrival!

Jackson Powell Goodwin

Julie and John welcomed Jackson Powell Goodwin on April 24th. Mom and baby both did great, and we can't wait for lots of play time!

In early march we were back in Hot Springs for Aunt Juju's baby shower!
Cate helped Momo do a little cooking.

Relaxing in Momo's zero gravity chair with great grandma Bodemann.

On Sunday we celebrated with Aunt Juju, the hosts did an adorable rainy day/ducky shower!

Cate and Clara had a great time playing together!

Pregnant sisters (and yes, I was the same size as Julie even though I was 6 weeks behind her)

Three pregnant ladies (Rosie was pretty early along at this point)

Momo with her girls (cate was too busy playing to be bothered with pictures).

We spent as much time outside in April as we could!

Loves to wear her tiara!

Maggie still gets lots of attention from Cate.

Picnic lunch at the park.

Dying eggs for Easter.

Finished product, one for each of us!

The Easter Bunny came!

Mickey and Minnie are still very popular at our house!

Binoculars for exploring the yard!

Cate had her own egg hunt before the rain started.

Cate keeps on painting, though we're not as messy as we once were (thankfully!).

Swinging after school

Cate is a fan of ice cream cones!

Just going to try update month by month to get ourselves caught up!
Cate got to experience her first doughnut (thanks to mom's pregnancy cravings). She thoroughly enjoyed it!

We were busy painting, usually starting with brushes and ending with our hands (and a bath!).

We've been dressing up with our homemade crown and "jewels".

Dad helped us write out our valentines.

Playing outside when the weather allows us (this one was on valentine's day)

We also took a family trip to the Dallas World Aquarium.

What a busy month!
