We love Halloween and since having Rylee, we love to coordinate. Last year we were a chef, cake decorator, and cupcake. This year we decided to be pirates. Unfortunately Evan wasn't able to go to our ward trunk or treat because of class. We had a fun time going with Aunt Amanda, Uncle Skye, and Izabelle. Happy Halloween!
Hello to everyone out there in blog-land. Tonight I thought I would treat you with an update coming from me, and not from my wonderful wife, Shelbee. It has been a while since I have posted anything on a blog, so hold on tight, it may get a little bumpy.
Let me start out by saying how wonderful it is being a Dad. My little girl is nothing short of adorable. I love being able to spend every day with her.
We had the pleasure of having Kris, Rachel, Alex, and Aurora down to go to the State Fair of Texas with us. It was so nice!! We didn't quite stay as long as usual because of the babies but it was still fun. We had some tornado taters and corn dogs to complete our experience. We also got to just veg and hang out over the weekend.
Rylee is 18 months old! This is a big day for us because she now gets to go into Nursery at church. This means no more chasing her around hallways for 3 hours! Her 18 months stats are 29 pounds (95th%) and 34 inches (99th %). She is working on saying more words. We need her to say at least 15 words by 21 months or she will need to do early speech interventions. I'm not too worried because I know she is just soaking everything in. She loves to play with friends and be outside as much as possible. We try and go on nightly walks. She loves bath time too. Rylee has begun to throw fits every once and a while. We just either ignore her for a few minutes or put her in a time out. Overall she is a wonderful little toddler that is happy and healthy!
We were married on June 20th, 2009 in the Dallas LDS Temple. We purchased our first home in Mansfield, TX in 2010. Our daughter Rylee was born April 7th, 2011. We have 2 puggles named Barkley and Bella. Shelbee is a school counselor in Mansfield and Evan is in school for Special Education. We are excited to continue our adventures in life together as a family of 3!
