2 Months and Growing

Bailey is 2 months old now.  We had her 2 month check up today and she is growing like she should.  She weighs 9 lbs. 8 oz. and is 22 inches long.  It is crazy to think that she has doubled her weight in two months.  We love this little girl to pieces!  She is awake a lot more these days and sometimes you can even catch her smiling.

Last night we had some friends over for a BBQ and their daughter walked in wearing the same shirt as Ryleigh.  The girls were pretty cute when we pointed it out to them.  I guess they called each other up and planned it.  I didn't think that started until elementary school.

I couldn't get Ryleigh to look at the camera.  She kept looking at Addy saying "cheese" every time I took a picture.

Daddy's Girls

My child is weird!

Ryleigh was running around the house tonight with her blanket between her legs pretending she had a tail.  I got out the camera and took a picture and she kept saying "again, again" so she could continue running with a tail.  She thought she was pretty funny.  Ok, we did too!

Oops, Forgot

My sister reminded me today that I never posted a picture of Ryleigh in her Easter dress.  Since she didn't get to wear it on Easter I forgot.  Here she is!

I had to go into work today for interviewing so Devin stayed home with the girls.  When I came home I was greeted by a little Ryleigh saying, "Mess mama, mess!"  This is a girl who doesn't like messes and lets you know right away when one is made.  I followed her and saw a little popcorn on the kitchen floor.  I said, "Yep, there is a mess.  Let's clean it up," and I continued on my way.  As I turned the corner to go upstairs this is what I saw...

popcorn on every stair.  Don't ask me how she managed to get it on EVERY stair.  I called for Devin to come look as she pointed out her "pocorn" as if I didn't see it.  He was on the computer doing credits to renew his license.  He had no clue what Ryleigh was doing.  He thought she was still eating the popcorn in the office with him.  I am sure she tried telling him about the mess because she always does but I guess he ignored her. 

I asked her to help clean it up and this was how she helped.

Weekend Excursion

We took a trip up to Idaho City on Saturday.  As Devin put it, "It was an interesting trip."  On the way up, the road was pretty curvy and we heard a sound from the back seat that you don't want to hear...Ryleigh got car sick.  Not fun at all!  Thank goodness we were only a few miles from town because there was nowhere to pull off before then.  Who thinks to bring an extra set of clothes for your two year old?  Not us.  Once we got her and the car cleaned as best we could not being at home, I took her over in her diaper to the visitor's center in hopes to find a t-shirt she could wear for the day.  Luckily they had some.  So she walked around for the afternoon in a big t-shirt.  I then went and bought dramamine for the ride home.  After that drama, we had a good time walking around the old mining town.

Story Time

Ryleigh was laying down with Bailey the other night and decided to go get her Mickey Mouse book to "read" to her baby sister.  It was pretty cute.

Nanny Lizzie

Lizzie loves Bailey just as much as she loved Ryleigh when she was a baby.  She has to be right next to Bailey when she is laying on the floor.  We are so lucky to have a dog that is so good with our girls.  Especially with all that she puts up with from Ryleigh.

Sister Love

Ryleigh doesn't share her blanket with anyone!  On occasion she will share it with her sister.  I caught her in the act tonight.

Blessing Day

My parents were coming for Memorial Day Weekend so we decided to bless Bailey while they were here. Devin's whole family was able to come up for it as well. We blessed her at our house since it wasn't Fast Sunday. It was different but Devin gave her a very nice blessing.

Grandpa grabbed the camera real quick while Grandma was holding her since she had her eyes open.

Grandpa got a few snap shots of Ryleigh while he was here that I thought were pretty cute.

We sure had a house full, but we had fun and it was good to see everyone.
