One Down...One To Go!

Before I tell you any funny stories, please note that Jake and I are super excited to now only have one child in diapers/pull-ups! Ry has been pretty much potty trained with the "#1" for a long time but the "#2" was the hardest for her. She finally is officially wearing panties 24/7 (except bed time) and we are very proud of her :)


*"I just text Gavin. I told him we would go to a show"

*"That sounds like a perfect plan, Momma!"

*"I want a toaster snoodle to eat"

*"We can't go outside, we'll get sunburnt"

*"Can I play noggin on the puter?"

*"We don't have a cat, guess we will have to buy one"

*She cracks us up when she wants to tell a secret and wisper....she just fully covers the front of her mouth and you can hardly hear her :)

*She likes counting to 20 and can count to 10 in Spanish

*She just started her first dance class and has learned dance moves such as: "the egg beater" and the "peppermint lasso" (never heard of those but they are cute dances!)


*she is saying all sorts of words and it's funny to hear how she says things differently than Ry did at that age:

-Daddy (not Dadda)
-Mommy (not Momma)
-RyRee (not RyRy)
-when she sees a duck in book or tv, she says QUACK QUACK
-when she sees an elephant,she puts her arm up to her head and moves it up and down and makes a loud noise
-pees (please)
-before we eat dinner I say "let's bless it" and automatically Keira puts her hands together and says "thaaaaank, amen!"
-before bed she always has to give everyone a kiss, she just says "muah!" real loud and then waves "NITE NITE!"
-she likes to stand up on her head for like a minute straight and laugh and then she finally rolls over to make it a completed roll..she thinks it's hilarious

That's everything I got for now...may be another 2 or 3 mths until my next post :) toodles!

The other day when she knew I had to turn right to get to our street, she said "approaching right turn" She was trying to be like the GPS

Ry, Keira, my Mom and I were eating bfast a few wks ago and Ryleigh had her fake cell phone out. She said "hold on, I need to check my phone." she opened it and said "nope, Gavin didn't text me" hahahah

Everytime I ask Ry who loves her..she says "Jesus, does" and I think it's just so sweet and so true, too :)

When I asked Ryleigh the other night, "who wants to take a bathy first?" she shouted, "Keira does" and I asked "why do you always say 'Keira does'?" and she answered back "because I'm sick and I can't" (which was not true, she was just pulling the sick card I guess)

I was singing that Fray song out loud the other day at home and I stopped mid-sentence saying "where were you?where were you" and Ryleigh sang "lying on the floor" - I cracked up

At dinner I asked Ryleigh if she wanted ice and she answered with "ice, ice baby...dun dun dun dun dun dun dun dun" she really did make the drumming noise

ONE MORE THING: in the last few days I have caught Ryleigh scrubbing the tooth brush and tooth paste on Keira's bald head AND writing with red marker on Keira's head...poor K boo :(

Oh My Goodness, So Sorry!

Long time no blog!

It has been terribly hard to get on the computer for personal time lately - working like crazy and preparing for Keira to take off walking any day now really drains me by the end of the day. When the gals go to bed, instead of watching my shows I have been reading my mom devotional and then reading the twilight series so now I am an official book nerd but I don't mind. Ok, enough about me - what everyone comes to the blog to hear about, the girls:

Keira Boo -

Turned 10 months on Sunday and is just 4 lbs smaller than Ry! She is 22lbs and Ry is 26 lbs - haha :)

Is walking with her walker alot and is trying her hardest to keep up with her big sister

signs milk and mama and likes to say "roar" when we talk about bears and makes a raspberry noise when playing with her toy truck

when I prompt her with "standing outside with my mouth open wide" she then says "ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah" tooooooo cute

has 5 teeth right now with 3 cutting at the same time

eating table food with her bottles - she isn't into the whole baby food thing

RyRy -

2.5 years this month

can tell you what/where her glutius maximus is and her latissimus dorsi (bad spelling)

her favorite songs right now are "whole world in his hands" by Raffi and "heartless" by Kanye

favorite show is still Mickey Mouse Clubhouse (will that ever end?)

is all about her purses and lip glosses and basketball (great mixture, huh?)

I will post some pics later on here - thanks for checking out our blog and that's all I got now, how'd ya like it?
