Just a quick funny story to share about our funny little girl.
Last night after I picked Ryleigh up from daycare, we stopped at the grocery store. Ryleigh was riding in the front of the cart and as we going down the aisle, I came up on a man that was standing in my way. Just as I was getting ready to say "excuse me", Ryleigh shouted, "BEEP, BEEP!". It was so funny!!! I started laughing and continued to say "excuse me", but the guy never did move. I was in Cash Savers, so I couldn't have expected more. Ryleigh sure knows how to make you laugh though.
Well, Tom sure did a good job of getting himself a little Elvis fan! Ryleigh LOVES Elvis and loves to dance to him. She has been doing her "Elvis hand" for a long time now. She does a good job at it too. Most recently, she has learned how to do her "Elvis leg". Here are two pictures I snapped here at work today of her doing her "Elvis leg". I tried to catch her doing her Elvis hand, but the camera went dead and I was able to get it on long enough to upload the pictures. So enjoy!
Oh and she also knows who Elvis is by looking at him. We have a picture frame from Graceland with a picture of Tom and I in it and the other day she noticed it and pulled it down, pointed to Elvis and started doing her hand.
This past Sunday we went apple picking at Eckert's Farm with Uncle Terry, Aunt Debbie and Nicholas. We all had a great time. Nicholas and Ryleigh enjoyed every minute of it. They rode the rides (which I couldnt believe that Ryleigh did), played in the Fort, watched the Pig Races, rode the train through the orchard, fed the goats and so much more. We picked apples last and Ryleigh had a lot of fun. She was so cute picking the apples off the trees. We had to try to explain to her that ones on the ground were bad apples. She also loves to eat them!!! If you were to look in our fruit bowl on our table right now, you will find two red apples with bites out of them.
We were all so exhausted when we got home that we all took a nap and then ended up just watching movies the rest of the evening.
Thanks Terry and Debbie for inviting us to come along! We had a blast!
Ryleigh is going to have a baby sister!! We had our ultrasound yesterday. She looks great and is cute already! She measured 12 oz. We are halfway there!!!! She will be here before we know it. So another girl for the Wilson family it is!!!
Her name will be Madison Louise (Louise after he grandma Wilson).
This morning I was putting Ryleigh's shoes on and I said "One shoe" and she held up her fingers like she was counting and finished it by saying, "Two, Three". It was so cute!! I just can't believe that my baby can count to 3 already. We were so excited, we had to call daddy at work to tell him!! He was very proud too!!
Ryleigh celebrated Grandparent's Day at school on Friday. Grammy was able to join her. They had a lot of fun. Grammy and Ryleigh had breakfast, made a picture frame together and played for a little while. Ryleigh had also made Grammy a card, a poem and another drawing with her picture on it. (She also made some for Papa and was able to give them to him on Sunday). Grammy said that Ryleigh had to show her all the paintings and stuff on the walls. I know that they both really enjoyed their time. When I picked Ryleigh up that evening, the director said that Ryleigh had a really good time with her grandmother today.
Thank you Grammy for joining me at school for Grandparents Day!!!
We had to take a few pictures of Ryleigh on the mower for an ad for the paper. Dad is putting an ad for mowers in there and we are using her. Click on the picture below to see a slideshow. And check out the Sullivan Independent Newspaper that will come out on Tuesday.
Ryleigh got a big girl bed Saturday. We are giving her furniture to the baby and I decided to start on switching everything and getting the baby room started, so Ryleigh and I went Saturday to get a big girl bed. I put it together when we got home and she was so excited. She is doing great with it. Her first night she went right to sleep and as far as we know stayed asleep and did not fall out. At her usual time (6:20) she cried, but I waited to see if she would go back to sleep. I never heard anymore out of her and at 7:50 she came into our room. The next night, she woke up pretty early crying. When Tom went to see what was wrong she was standing in her door way shaking the baby gate. She ended up sleeping with us the rest of the morning. Then last night, she did great again. She woke up at 6:30, but couldn't get her baby gate open, so she cried a little bit until I picked her up. She looks so big sleeping in it! We just can't believe that our baby is already in a big girl bed!! See pictures below... they are a little blurry and the lighting wasn't very good.
Ok, well I am having computer problems, I will have to try again in a little bit with the pictures
