Growing up way too fast...
Rylie pulled up to stand yesterday!! I was shocked. She was playing with this toy piano we have and she pulled up to her knees and then stood up holding onto the piano. This is about a month earlier than Cole did it. Also, she started clapping her hands yesterday too. She is getting to be such a big girl. It's exciting and sad at the same time. I want my baby to stay little!!!

They both have colds now. Cole started having a runny nose on Friday and Rylie started last night (Monday). I thought maybe Cole's cold was from Rylie had a runny nose for a couple days about 2 weeks ago, but I guess this is something different since she is sick again. I started her pulmicort and albuterol this morning. She was up about 20 times last night and slept a little better with tylenol so I'm sure she's not feeling well. Normally she sleeps through the night without even a peep. She woke up coughing a ton and her nose is running non-stop. Poor little baby! Cole was much better yesterday but then last night his nose starting running like crazy again.

We got to go to church last night for the first time in a few months. Grandma Score and Great Grandma babysat the kids while Matt and I went to church. It was nice to actually be able to go without worrying about keeping 2 little ones quiet.

Nice weekend :)
This weekend was really nice and relaxing. Saturday we went over to Sherri's to celebrate her birthday so the kids got to play with their 2nd cousins again. They love it! Cole was really excited to go see Aiden again and Rylie and Lilli tried eating each other as usual. Mady snoozed with her dog Trinka which was incredibly cute. She was sleeping on the floor and Trinka came and laid her head right down on her. I got some good pictures and will hopefully have those up on snapfish soon. I'm off work Monday and Tuesday this week so I'll have time to get some of that stuff done.
Today we relaxed and went for a swim in the pool. It was Rylie's first time (out of my tummy) in the pool and she loved it!!! She was kicking like crazy (just like she did last year while she was in my tummy in the pool)and splashed around a lot. Cole still likes his little float from last year so I bought Rylie one today. Now they can float around together!! It will make life easier on us while they are in the pool.

Rylie is officially crawling now. She finally stopped her army crawl and is on her hands and knees. She also crawls over to things and gets up on only her knees. I'm sure she'll pull herself up to stand VERY soon. She is doing everything super early. Also, we struggle sooooo much to feed her baby food. I decided to give up and let her win. She'll now be eating table food since it takes 30 min for her to eat ONE jar of baby food. The challenge will be finding foods that contain neither dairy or soy. That is even more difficult than it was with Cole. He was fine with soy. She does have small amounts of soy without a reaction (baby puffs have it in them), but I'm not sure where to draw the line. For the most part we'll just avoid soy whenever possible until she's close to a year old. Hopefully she'll follow in Cole's footsteps and grow out of her allergies by then.

Cole has been having some trouble with going potty lately. Every few days he will have like 12 accidents in a day. It was really weird and I'm not sure what is going on. Usually he's just too busy playing and doesn't tell us he has to go. Today he had a very good day with only one accident. Yesterday I think he made it the entire day without an accident, so maybe that is getting better again. His "accidents" are like the size of a quarter so it isn't too bad. He never has poop accidents either which is wonderful!
