Happy Father's Day to my awesome dad, my wonderful husband and all of the other dads out there! I hope all of you have a great day!
I hope everyone is having a great weekend! I have never really liked the hot Florida summers, but I think this one is going to be pretty enjoyable. Rylie wants to put her bathing suit on the second she gets up in the morning, and then we just play outside all day. Between the swing set and the pool, our backyard is pretty darn fun!
My first Sunday funny is about a friend. This is just too good not to post. But I'll be nice and not tell you who it is. :-) We met up with some friends the other day and my friend had on two different colored flip flops! She had put two different ones on to get her husband's opinion on which one looked better, and ended up leaving the house like that. And as funny as it is, it just goes to show what happens when you have kids in the house...you get sidetracked very easily!
Usually when we get home in the evenings, Brian comes out to help get the kids out of the car. He always asks Rylie how her day was and they chit chat for a few minutes. Sometimes, though, he is busy cooking dinner and can't get outside. So the other day he didn't get outside to help until we were almost in and then we sat right down to eat. A little later Rylie says "Daddy, ask me how my day was." I guess she realized that she never talked about her day with her dad. It was so cute.
Friday we went out to eat again after we picked the kids up from school. I think this may be turning into a little routine we have. We go to IHOP and have breakfast for dinner. I realize it isn't the fanciest restaurant, but Rylie loves the food, the servers know us now and are always great to the kids, and we don't have to worry about Rylie being silly and disrupting anyone's nice dinner. Friday night she had blueberry pancakes. And here is a crappy cell phone picture to prove how much she enjoyed them...
After dinner Rylie decided to belt out the ABC song for the enjoyment of all of the other diners. I was trying to get her to sing a little softer, but she wanted to make sure everyone heard her. After her performance, a couple of the other people clapped for her. One couple was leaving the same time we did and started talking to Rylie and telling her how good she sings. Then the lady said "are you and mommy going to be making a nice dinner for daddy on Father's Day?" Rylie said "no, daddy cooks and then we eat it." (Yes, I have an awesome husband.)
Sometimes I call Bryce "Boo Boos". I have no idea where that came from, but when he fusses I'll say "It's OK Boo Boos." He was fussing in the car the other day and Rylie said "It's OK Boo Boos. Your mommy will be here soon." I thought it was so sweet and it just made me laugh that she called him that.
And in other news...
Rylie has slept the past two nights with no diaper on! She has been waking up dry every morning, so we decided to try it. The only thing is that when she wakes up and says "Daddy, come get me" we jump up and run up there and get her so we can get her to the potty if need be. But even then, she hasn't been going until like a half hour after she wakes up. Awesome!
Bryce has been eating "real" food! He is pretty much over baby food any more. He had spaghetti the other night and loved it! He has had a lot of watermelon, papaya and mango this weekend, and he also had pancakes this morning. I promise to get some pictures of the spaghetti feast posted soon!
The swing set is up! Rylie is having so much fun! I promise to get pictures of that up soon!
Speaking of the pictures...I have been so busy lately and just haven't really had much time for anything. I am going to try to make some time for Brian to sit down and get them off the camera today.
And speaking of my lack of time...I'm sorry to all of my blogger friends that I haven't been by your blogs lately. I promise I will get by and get caught up this week! So be prepared for all the comments!
But for now, a certain little two year old REALLY wants me to put my bathing suit on and get in the pool with her. I'm sure her brother will be up soon and that is where we will probably be for the rest of the day! My parents are coming over to celebrate Father's Day so we'll be firing up the grill later and having a good dinner!
Have a great week everyone!!!
