Everyone seems to be feeling a lot better around here, but Kitt and Garet still have coughs so their teacher asked them to stay home again! That made for two weeks of being out of school and we all miss it. We still did lots of fun things though. Aunt LeAnn and Parky came up for the day so we could all go to the aquarium. We got to see the dolphin show this time which was really cool, in addition to all of the normal things there to see. We also played a lot at the house. Daddy took Garet to gymnastics on Wednesday while Kitt and Ryan stayed home with Mommy since that was the day after we found out about Kitt’s ears being infected. Of course, Thursday was Valentine’s Day and we got some fun gifts and cards from family and our friends at school. Not only was Thursday Valentine’s Day, it was also Ryan’s 9 month birthday. Mommy had a little bit of a hard time getting a good picture with Ryan wearing the crown but she did the best she could. Ryan is really developing her own little personality as she gets older. She is not crawling but she likes to stand up with someone’s help. Mommy added blueberries, squash, prunes and yogurt to her diet recently. There is not much she doesn’t seem to like to eat. We all got to see Aunt Kristen and Uncle Mark over the weekend which was fun as always. We are very excited about Granny coming to visit us later this week and we are sure we will have lots of adventures to report once she arrives. See you next week!
Happy 9 month old birthday Ryan. It’s hard to believe that you are 9 months old already. Before you know it, we will be celebrating your 1 year old birthday. I love the picture of you sitting back on the couch between your big sisters with your arms propped behind your head. You must have known it was your birthday. I’m sorry you girls still have a cough but hopefully by now the cough is gone and you are feeling better and are able to return to school. It looks like you all had a good time with Parky and Aunt LeAnn at the aquarium. Granny is excited about seeing you all this week. I think she’s hoping you’ll take her to the museum since you seem to like it there so much. Well, have a good rest of the week and I’ll be looking forward to reading all about your weeks activities in the next blog. Love you lots! …Poppy
Girls, What a fun valentine’s day you had – both at school and, I’m sure, your mommy filled that bucket with all your favorite goodies. Now I have a question – where did the tent come from? I noticed inside were all your goodies – tea set, Bear, Blankie and all sorts of “needed” items. It looks great, and maybe you can make room for Granny to go in for a tea party. Happy 9 month birthday Ryan. Wow, it won’t be long until we celebrate your first birthday. I’m really getting excited about getting on the plane in less than two days to spend a week with you. What sort of fun things do you have planned? I know I want to visit the museum you go to on Mondays. That looks like a terrific place; and, to think, we can even have lunch there. So until Wednesday, stay well so we can all do some exciting things together. Sending you lots of love, kisses and prayers. Granny
