18 Months!

Rylee and Ayden are officially 18 months today.  A year and a half!  Hard to believe we've actually been parents for a year and a half already.  Even harder to believe that we will now be approaching age 2.  Gasp!

Both of them woke up with slight runny noses on Saturday.  By Sunday, they were both complete messes with lots of snot and crankiness.  Oh the crankiness!  Yesterday, they were feeling much better and we actually had a good day, despite me keeping them inside all day. Usually being inside means lots of whining.  Even though they were feeling better, they both had turned into complete snot factories.  Today, their noses are still producing gross colorful snot at an alarming rate.  Being a mom is not a glamorous job when you are wiping snot all day long.  Even less glamorous is when they come up and give you a hug, then proceed to rub their faces all over you before you have a chance to grab a Kleenex.  Ewwww.

They LOVE to be outside!  We go to the park almost on a daily basis.  There are 3 different parks within walking distance, but we also drive into Eugene occasionally to go to a splash park (with fountains).  We sometimes just stay home and play in our little kid pool, the sprinkler, or the good old fashion garden hose.

Where did my baby go?

So happy to be outside!

He LOVES to explore!



They are constantly learning new things that make us laugh.  Tony and I thoroughly enjoy watching them try new things and we practically squeal in delight when they master a new skill.  They are also constantly giving us mini heart attacks with their daring exploits....

They both started standing on their "bikes" hands free, as of yesterday.

She wanted to go higher, but I made her get down!

Their 18 month check up is next week and I plan to write more detailed individual posts with their stats and other fun stuff.  I can't wait to find out how much they weigh and how tall they are!  They haven't been measured since their 12 month appointment!

For now, I will just leave you with more pictures...

Driving (not really) their jeep at Grandma and Grandpa's.

Spying on the neighbors!

Horsey rides!

Hahaha!  Don't most people play with buckets on their heads?

18 months old today

    2. Oh no. The colds are still in full force! Bleh! As for the chairs, we already have them pulled away from the table to keep Ayden off the table. Now, how do I keep Rylee from climbing up the chairs????
