Lillian is 9 months old!!

Lilly had her nine month check up the other day and she is doing great!!! Lillian weighed in at 20.75 pounds and 27 inches. She is in the 77% for her weight and 24% for her height. They told me she was growing wonderfully and starting to slim down, I am sure because she is so mobile now. Although she is not walking on her own yet she is doing lots of furniture walking. She is SO close. She is growing into her little personality, and starting to get a little fresh :) She is starting to learn the word NO, although not very quickly! Lil is so different then Ryan was. She is into EVERYTHING!!! And she is putting everything in her mouth!! Lillian is working on getting her fourth tooth too!! Wow she is just growing SO fast!! She looks up to her big brother, and they play together so nicely! Ryan is getting so patient with her, he is getting so old too!!

We hope that you all are staying warm during the FREEZING cold season!! I will update again more later!!

Our Trip to Iowa

Our trip to Iowa was a great sucess!

We all had so much fun seeing Auntie, Lexi, Libby and Uncle Tony!! We went swimming at the Y, celebrated the New Year, Kiks birthday and even an early first birthday for Libby!! We were busy, busy. Although it was a great trip, we were glad to get home and back to our regular routine. We miss Auntie and everyone else terribly, and we can't wait to see them again!!!! We love you guys!

The Plane Ride!

Well, we all survived our first plane ride!! Not my first airplane ride, but Ryan and Lillians. Ryan was excited, but a little nervous to get on the plane. The first picture is a pic of Ryan with OUR airplane. This is the first plane from Boston to Minneapolis. The first plane ride took about two and a half hours...well, it was supposed to be two and a half hours.
After trying to land three different times we finally got off the plane after about three to three and a half hours. We went and had some lunch, only to find out that our second flight was delayed. We were supposed to take off about 3:30pm. I think we finally ended up taking off about 6pm. It was a LONG ride..but well worth it!!
We finally landed in Souix City and got our luggage, then started our two hour trek to Kik's house. At about 9:30pm we FINALLY arrived at Camp Foster!! It was SOO great to see Kris, and Libby even got up to join the party!! After our VERY long day, we were off to bed shortly after getting there. Needless to say, Ryan LOVED flying and for Lilly, well, it was VERY exciting for her too. She would stand up and jump up and down yelling and laughing during take off, touch down and any turbulance. It was SO funny!!
