Recent Major Events

I've been delaying this post because I don't have any pictures of it yet, but I'll do it anyway.

First item of business- RYAN GRADUATED! He now asks that we all call him "Master of Public Administration." His favorite part about having his masters is... No more homework. My favorite part about him having his masters is... No more tuition. You are amazing honey! Congratulations Sweet Heart I am so proud of you!

Second item of business- BELLA IS TWO YEARS OLD! She is a ball of energy at this point, so that hasn't changed. Here are some facts about Bella:

Favorite Food: Coclit (Chocolate)
Favorite Outfit: Pleemming Suit (swimming suit)
Favorite Character: Dora/ LeeMiMi (it's a tie between Dora and Ariel)
Favorite Animal: Monkey
Favorite Person (besides Mommy and Daddy of course): Gama (Grandma)
Favorite Activity: Pleeming (Swimming)
Favorite Book: Dog Go! Dog! (a.k.a. Go Dog! Go!)
Bella loves: reading, riding her bike (it's really a riding toy, we just call it her bike), hiding from Swiper, running around and screaming, repeating EVERYTHING we say, layering on every pair of panties in her drawer, pulling Jayhawk around the house in a shoebox, giving hugs and kisses, collecting random things (like paper, cards, bags, pens, bibs, cups...etc.) and hauling them around with her everywhere she goes, singing, jumping, dancing, making messes, being clean, nose in the eye, going outside, playing at the play ground, teasing us, watching Dora and Little Mermaid, and going to Nursery at church.

She had a blast on her birthday. We did a little birthday party for her (tinkerbell themed)and we only invited one family because lots of kids seems to overwhelm her. We were in Kansas and she hadn't seen this friend for almost a year, but she chased Asher around his house, yard, and park until it was time to go to bed. She had him giggling like a school girl, except when she stole his stick. I wish the Spaulding family could come be our neighbors. It was really fun seeing you guys again!

Third item of business- SHE MADE IT ONTO THE CHARTS! Bella had her 24 month check up and she now registers on the charts.

Weight: 22.14 lbs (3rd percentile)
Height: 31.5 inches (4th percentile)

Congrats Baby Girl! You are such a joy. We love you to pieces!
