They were blowing bubbles!
Rylie closeup blowing bubbles (aka spitting-I'm trying to break her of this! lol)
I think they were ready to go....
"Can we please go outside?"
I think they're definitely ready for swimming too! We got our pool passes the other day for our community pool. Can you believe it's already 90 degrees in April?!
We met our friends Becca & Kendall for lunch again today. Rylie brought Kitty along too! I took some cute pictures of her & Kitty while we waited for Becca & Kendall to arrive...
"Yay! Kitty likes going to lunch too!"
"What should Kitty order?

Rylie's accomplishments since her 1st birthday.....
-Points to her eyes, ears, nose, knees, feet, & belly button on request
-Says only a few words, but knows what most things are
-Brings us things on request
-We're still working on her feeding herself with utensils. She's quite messy & with Mommy being so OCD, I'm not good about letting her practice as much.
-Signs for "more"
-Started walking right before 16 months & became full-time at it & running a few weeks later.
-Points to herself when asked "Who's Rylie?"
-She'll wave her arms in the air when you ask her to "hail a taxi" (all Daddy on that one! lol)
-She gets herself on & off her riding toys & can now push herself on her 4 wheeler forward & back by herself
-Has just started to blow her own nose when handed a tissue
-Can take her clothes off herself lol
-Can put socks & shoes on herself....sometime she'll have 2 socks on one foot & her shoes are almost never on the right feet, but she's got the idea!
-Tries to put her other clothes on....pants end up on her arms though lol
-Climbs on & off furniture herself
-Discovered she has a love for chocolate (just like Mommy hehe)
-Is obsessed with shoes! She doesnt like wearing her own usually but when Mommy's & Daddy's are lying around, she's always putting them on & Easter afternoon was walking around in Mommy's heels! (Yeah, didnt have the camera handy for that one! Darnit!)
I'm sure there's more but I never can remember them all when I type these! Here's more 18 month pictures from today...

This one makes me tear up & get goosebumps every time I watch it & I've already seen it 1000 times!
(The videos show up very small here & are much better quality on our You Tube-linked under Our Videos on the sidebar)
On a side note, Rylie's not being herself today. We turned off her air purifier in her room 2 days ago to get it cleaned & change the filter & since then she's had a runny nose. Today she has also had a slight congested cough & has been very clingy. Hopefully she's not really getting sick & it really is just a change of air in her room, but we're getting her purifier back up & running today!

Ohhh the beginning stages of "terrible 2's". And before I get 10 emails about how horrible I am for taking pictures of Rylie while she was crying or eating something in front of her she couldnt have, lemme just state she seriously had nothing wrong with her. She had pancakes on her highchair tray that she just wanted to throw on the floor. She & I always eat breakfast together every morning & I dont want her getting the idea that she can throw a tantrum to get things she wants. Plus too much banana....well we all know what that can do to ya! =)
