We had a fun week with Auntie Kristin in town. You might remember that she and Mommy have been friends since they were little girls so it’s always fun for them to be together. Of course, this was her first time meeting Ryan, and we think that everyone had a great time. We did our normal activities with her here, including swim lessons, a trip to Hippo Hopp and even a stop at a pretty nice restaurant. It was a great week. For those of you keeping track of the calendar, you will notice that Ryan had her two-month birthday this week. Look how big she is in her 6 month outfit! She will go tomorrow for her two-month check up so we will have an update next week with how great she is doing! Daddy took Kitt and Garet to the big splash park Saturday and Sunday. Saturday the water wasn’t working but we still had fun playing at the playground. Daddy also took Kitt and Garet to the big pool for some swim time. Ryan is doing a great job at night. In fact, three nights this week, she went to bed some time between 9:00 and 10:00 PM and slept all the way until 6:00 or 6:30 in the morning–Mommy was especially excited about this new development! Kitt and Garet continue to be such great big sisters. Mommy likes seeing them walk up to Ryan, kiss her and tell her they love her (totally unprompted). You will see a picture of Ryan with a baby doll. Mommy was not sure if Garet wanted Ryan to play with her baby doll or if Garet wanted the baby doll in the seat where Ryan was. We hope you have a fun week! We are going to work on potty training this week so check in next week to see the results. We are also expecting some special visitors at the weekend. See you then!
As always, girls, you wrote a tremendous blog this week. I think Ryan is smiling because of all the love you shower on her. In her birthday picture, she is wearing one of my favorite outfits that Kitt and Garet wore. I think I can even find the picture in the first year blog of you two sitting on the sofa wearing that lovely dress. Your daddy taking just the two of you out on Saturday and Sunday mornings reminds me of Poppy taking your mommy and Aunt Kristen out every Saturday. He took you various places, but you always managed to end up at University Mall for pizza and possibly an ice cream. That gave Granny time to be home taking care of Uncle Michael. I know what a great time you would have with Auntie Kristin for she truly loves you; and now that she’s met Ryan, she has three adorable girls to love. Yes, you are in for a double surprise one week from today. Have fun with your visitors and good luck with learning to use the potty. Granny prays for you every day and loves you lots. Granny
