Mr. Destructo now

So last nite Rylan was in the kitchen. He was pushing on one of the chairs and pushed it over and it BROKE! He looked at me with utter shock and was ready to cry. I was laughing so thankfully he did too. Crazy kiddo!
Nathan thinks he'll be able to fix it with some sanding down of parts and some glue. We'll see. If not, it's the kids' future craft table so they'll have to deal with only having three chairs for it. Hahaha!
Rylan loves to push things over. Guess it starts early with boys having to show off their strength. Lol! Just hope his little sister doesn't get that from him.

Rylan - Still the big man on campus

Rylan had his 18mth checkup today. He is doing great and there are no concerns at all. His lungs were clear...yipee!!! He does have head stuff and has for a couple weeks but dr said to just keep giving him zyrtec until he clears up. He has seasonal stuff just like his momma.

He is 32.8lbs - 97% and 34.75" tall - 97%. His head is 19cm but I don't know that %. He has lost weight but gotten really tall. Big boy!

Update on baby girl

Had a checkup today and all is looking well. Baby girl is nice and active. Dr. Greek did check her heart on the u/s and said it looked perfect. There are no holes, all septums and there and just fine. We could even see the valves working away. What a relief. She was also swallowing and filled her little tummy up with fluid. Her eyelid was fluttering too. And she is still a girl!!! :)

I've been having bh contractions every day for the last few weeks but the dr checked and they have done nothing at all. Baby girl is locked away, tight. Yay!

We have a named picked out but Nathan won't let me make it offical yet. He still thinks it's too early. Hoping he'll let me make it official soon. Afterall, she does have a dresser full of clothes so she should have an official name too. :)

Rylan and his sister

Here's Rylan giving his little sister kisses. He gives her kisses everyday. Sometimes he bites me so I've had to learn to make it a super short kiss. LOL!
He is very sweet and even tries to share his sippy cup with her sometimes. It cracks me up. He completely doesn't get it at all and thinks daddy has a baby too. Sometimes if you ask him where the baby is, he will pat his tummy.
He does have a cabbage patch doll with a bottle and he will feed the baby and rock her. It's adorable!
He is in for a big surprise.

I cannot believe he is 18 months old now. He is so big and so smart. He is interested in everything and just loves to look at it all and soak it in. He loves to read and can go through 10-20 books before bedtime. He is a daredevil and loves to go off furniture head first. He loves to stand on the recliner and hit it hard enough so the chair is almost flat. Mom does not like that.

He felt rain for the first time the other day and just smiled. He wasn't sure what was going on but really liked it. He still isn't too sure about the wind. :) He loves outside and we took him to the park yesterday for the first time this year. The swing made him laugh, just like it did last summer. He did try to eat a rock. He is def. his dad b/c when we got home he found a rock outside and brought it in with him. :)

He is still a talker. He is getting more words that others can understand. He tries to repeat almost all words but he doesn't quite get it yet. His first understandable word was baby. :) He also says mama, dada, elmo, duck, georgie (for curious george and george bush), apple, purple, shoes, book, go sioux, touchdown and i'm sure i'm forgetting a few others. It won't be long and I'll be wondering why I wanted him talking already. Haha!

He has his 18mth checkup tomorrow. He has gotten taller and thinned out quite a bit. I'm hoping his weight will be back on the charts, or close to it anyway. :)
