ok, so if you really know me and my family, you already know all about the past 2 years. it all started with my sister having a routine surgical procedure done. after she was sent home, she ended up back in the hospital because she stopped breathing. she passed away 3 days later. then my uncle was in an avalache on christmas day and passed away. nope, not done yet! on jan.6 my brothers ex-wife was in a terrible car accident and was in critical condition and passed away on monday. so tomorrow we have to go to yet another funeral for one of our family members. i mean, really, will it ever end??!!!

ok so i think by now we all know that rylee is not very normal, at least to me!!:) j/k!! rylee REALLY loves any kind of fruit and almost any veggie that i put in front of her. just about every night and dinner, when i put the plate down in front of her, she gobbles up the veggies before i can even get my plate and sit down! so, it has come down to bribing her with vegetables to get her to eat the rest of her dinner!!! is that weird or what?? and if there is any kind of fruit with dinner, i have to hide it until she is at least half way done before she can have any fruit, otherwise she wont even touch her dinner! tonight we had salmon, corn on the cob and baked potato (she LOVES salmon and eats as much as i do usually). all she wanted to eat was the corn on the cob! she kept asking for more and i would have to say "you cant have any more corn until you eat the rest of your salmon" and it worked. she really wanted that corn!!! i guess i should be pretty grateful that she will eat her veggies, right?
this is rylee chowin down on her 3rd piece of corn on the cob!

so it is 1:13 and both of my kids are asleep. they have been asleep for almost an hour actually. i guess it doesnt matter that i have about a trillion things to do and clean around the house. while my kids sleep i am choosing to lay on the couch and eat a whole bag of nutter butters and watch 'notes from the underbelly'. yes, i am lazy....but you know you wish you were doing the same thing.

ok, so i finally got some pictures up of the kiddies! i think all my other pictures are on our imac and we have had to take it to get fixed like 4 times now so, who knows if they are still on there or not! things are going great at our place right now! we are still trying to potty train rylee....what a pain! if she isn't wearing any underwear or a diaper, she will go to the bathroom all by herself. she wont even tell me she has to go, she just does it! but if she is in a diaper or pull-up and i asks if she has to, the answer is always "NO!" we'll get there someday! when she does go....after she wipes her bum, she flushes the toilet and waves and says to the poo or pee "bye!! see you in the morning!!" WHAT?? i think she does this because sometimes i say that to her when i put her to bed. kids are so funny. and rylee is being more daring and finding many new things to climb up and jump off of....like the couches and on the kitchen counters. i have video of the her jumping from one couch to the other, but she is naked so i didnt think it would be very appropriate to post that:)! adyson is becoming more mobile...just trying to get things that are around while she is sitting up...i mean lets not get to crazy ady! other than that, things are the same!

i am very happy to say that Adyson is finally making some progress! she is seven months old and FINALLY started sitting up this past week....she is a little slow, but that's ok! it is so nice to have her sitting up so that she can play....although she is still really wabbley(sp?). las night was the best night!! she slept through the night for the very first time. usually we are up at least 2 or 3 times and sometimes 5 or 6....so annoying and tiring! i put her to bed at 7 and she didnt get up until 6!! i gave her a bottle and she went back to sleep until almost 9!! its pretty sad that even on a full nights sleep i still am not ready for the day or gotten anything done....oh well.

My little girl is 2!!!! WOW! the time really flies when you are raising kids! Rylee's birthday was on the 26th and i am soooo late in doing this!! i feel like such a bad mom because i didnt even have a party for her!! it was a very crazy christmas though, so i feel like i have an excuse. we found on christmas day that my uncle had died so we had to go up to utah for the funeral. pretty sucky times. my family keeps joking that "if there is going to be another funeral, it had better be mine!" so, anyways....we went to dinner on the 29th to celebrate rylees and 3 of her cousins birthdays that were all the same week. i didnt even get any good pictures because while we were eating rylee said that her stomach hurt and just wanted to be held the whole time! sad!! so by the time we got back home to vegas we were all kind of tired of partying and just wanted be by ourselves and hang out at home before our husbands had to go back to work. and i dont even know where my camera is to upload any pics.......i am really lame!!
