he's two!

Okay, so he's been 2 for awhile now, but he just had his 2-year well child visit, so this is when you get the update! :-)

At 2, Ryan weighs 28 lbs, 7.5 oz; is 34.75 inches tall; and has a head circumference of 49.5 cm. His favorite phrases are "thank you mama," "there it is," "how are you," "no no," and anything that ends in a k sound (truck, black, pink). He loves jumping...especially off of the couch. He still loves books and crayons and puzzles and chasing Bobby and Bup around (don't ask me how in the world Crosby and Satchmo evolved into Bobby and Bup!). :-) He loves his play kitchen and helping mama cook, anything choo choo, and anything that teaches him something...the boy is a sponge! He can count to 9 if he's watching a certain episode of "Little Einsteins" where they count the planets, and on his own can count to 4. He loved swimming in Florida, so we're looking into swim lessons this summer (Jen...where did you find the info about the class in Plainfield? Their website says it ends in March...is another one starting up after that?). We're working on potty training...he'll go #1 anytime we sit him on the toilet, but has only gone #2 one time (and he still doesn't tell us when he's going/gone #2). I think we're going to pick a weekend and just wear big boy underwear all weekend and see how it goes. Don't want to rush it, but I'm pretty over diapers. ;-) Here are a few more pics...we celebrated Ryan's actual birthday at Pizza King (his favorite place) with Dada and Nana, and then had the big party 2 days later at Chuck E. Cheese (what a nightmare! But I think everyone had a good time...).


missing FL already

Well, we made it home safely and I think we are all wishing we could stay there forever. To come home to 20 degrees and snow flurries isn't exactly a welcome sight. Oh well...we'll go back soon! Here are a few highlights of the trip....

Jenni and I were really good about taking pics of each other, so we could "swap" and have pics of ourselves with our own kiddos. Will post more after we've made the swap! SOO grateful to Jenni for coming with me...she made it possible for me to be able to bring Ryan! And I didn't bring my camera to dinner, but I was so excited that my brother and his family made the drive over from Plant City to meet us for dinner Saturday night! We packed a lot of memories and good times into three days - and I wouldn't have changed a thing (well, except maybe to extend the trip...). :-) We're both talking about moving down there permanently!


and we're off...

to Florida! Yippee! No more cold weather for us! Well, at least for 3 days. I'll try to be a better blogger and post some pics when we get back. Lots of firsts on this trip...Ry's first time swimming, first time at Disney World, first time we're flying without Dada's help. Yikes. :-)

Hope you all had a fabulous Valentine's Day! I ended up with a new diamond ring from my hubby! How's that for a surprise? Especially after we decided not to get each other anything! Hmph. ;-) Love you babe! We'll miss you this weekend!
