19 months young!  This girl is on the move and definitely keeps us on our toes.  I just love her smiles and giggles and the girl is crazy smart.  I had no idea how many words she could actually say until my mom wrote them down.  She's got a good 20 word vocabulary!

  • mama
  • dada
  • RyRy
  • apple (ahh ple)
  • bye-bye
  • more
  • ouch or ow (ususally ow)
  • puppy
  • red
  • green
  • yellow
  • blue
  • cheese
  • ball
  • bro-bro
  • sissy
  • uh-oh
  • go
  • mine (daddy taught her this...)
  • ashes

I realized about a month ago that we needed to set up a dentist appointment for Carsyn.  When the dentist called to confirm Ry's appointment this month, we scheduled her at the same time.  Ry's checkup was in the general room with me while the hubby and Carsyn went to a private room for her very first cleaning.  The dentist said everything looked great and that she possibly had some more teeth emerging as her gums were swollen, I think it might be her canines.  Overall she scored a B+ and Ry got an A.

This month we went to Ry's soccer closing ceremonies, which was really just a big celebration at the soccer fields.  They had tons of jump houses, a train and a petting zoo!  The littles with insane with the petting zoo!  Carsyn especially loved the bunnies and was not happy unless one was in her lap.  Ry had a ball catching all the animals he could, every time the hubby and I turned around he had a different bird/bunny/pig in hand!  That was the perfect way to end a Friday and wear those kids out for bed.  ;)

Ry caught all the animals!

Look I caught a rooster  mommy!

We love bunnies
The kids love the help out in the yard, or really just be outside.  One weekend us girls decided to relax on the back porch and watch the boys at work.  I thoroughly enjoyed it, and from the picture below I think Carsyn did as well.

During the month of May we also attended several birthday parties.  One of them was at the Main Event bowling alley, which was a first for the littles!   Ry was so excited it was hard for him to wait his turn, and he was a great helper when it was Carsyn's turn.  I loved the dino bowling aids.  We even hit up the arcades after cake and ice cream.  Those kids were so enthralled with all the lights that it was tough to drag them away when it was time to go.
bowling!!  5/3/2015

Ry loved to help Carsyn bowl 5/3
We've been to Safari Champs before, but this time Carsyn was able to do a lot more on her own.  While Ry was off playing with his daycare friends for a bday party, Carsyn was off on her own adventures.  She easily mastered the toddler section and then moved onto the main playscapes.  I of course had to follow her around but she really did it all on her own.  She loved keeping up with the big kids, sliding down the slides and exploring. 
Safari Champs fun 5/23/2015

I think she's tired...

Next month (June) we start 2 months of swim lessons for both kids.  I can't wait to see how Carsyn does, of course one of us has to be in the water with her, most likely me.  3x's a week for 2 months will be quite the workout.  At least I know Ry is excited for the classes, he actually asked me a few weeks ago when swimming would start again.  Fingers crossed!

Soccer and School Pictures

What can I say, I'm a sucker for pictures.  I just wish I knew where to put them all!  Or had a better filing/display system.

Ry played soccer for the first time this spring, that was a learning experience.  Below are his Spring 2015 pictures.

Also on 3/16 Ry and Carsy had new school photos taken.  They are just so stinkin' cute!  Unfortunately the pictures of them taken together didn't turn out so well...I let those go.
