Shes Growing Up....

Wow! Its been a while. This little girl is growing up so fast before my eyes! Since our last post we have had Christmas, Snow Mountain, a birthday, dance and several other activities.

Lets start with Christmas! Wow what a great time we had this year. Ryleigh really enjoyed the Christmas season and the lights. She loved buying a blank cake from Kroger and decorating for Jesus’ birthday and singing happy birthday. She loved making Santa cookies – he even came and visited our house. She got more presents and goodies to even name! I also enjoyed my time out of school just being around her.

A few days after Christmas we went to snow mountain. Wow! Now I even had fun, she hasn’t ever seen snow outside of hopping in the car last March in Covington on our way back home that Sunday it snowed. She played and played and played…. I have never seen and been around that much snow so it was very cool….

Ryleigh also went to the dentist and visited Dr. Leonard. She did an EXCELLENT job... So proud of her!

Fast Forward…. .her birthday…. She had a party at school and brought cupcakes and milk…. Her real party was at BoJo’s jumping place…. She loved it … We got to see lots of family and friends we do not get to see very often. She had an Alice in Wonderland Cake with Alice on Top….Its very hard to believe that this little girl is “three now mommy”. She has started sleeping in her bed and putting herself to sleep again.. My bad from last summer just enjoying laying with her and I would fall asleep before she did. Opps :)

We went to Covington for the Cirucs last weekend and got a WHOLE LOT OF SNOW! Although we missed the snow in Dublin … yup snow in middle ga…. We had fun in Ctown with Rory and Jared playing on the golf course. So we made the later circus at 3 instead of 11 because of ice on the roads. .. We met Halee Rae the Harpers there and had a lot of fun!

Presidents Day we had Parent Day at dance. Ryleigh loves Mondays because that is dance day. This day she got to get her Daddy involved and teach him the dance for Over the Rainbow (see munchkin note below). He loved dancing with her.

Today she danced at a nursing home in Dublin that we were originally suppose to miss as it was scheduled for the same day as the circus…. But due to snow was rescheduled. Ryleigh did a good job although she was a little scared at first. She ended up handing out valendtines to all the residents and even meeting the only Munchkin from the Wizard of Oz still alive…. Mr. Carl.

Now lets talk about her for a little bit!

At three years old Ryleigh ---

Is learning to spell her name and trys to write it

Likes to do her ‘ABCD’s’ and tell you what each letter is for…

A is alli b is Barbie and Brinkley c is cody Chloe and CANDY d is for Daddy and Dial “that’s me” I is for ice cream J is for Jessica and JB and Jared K is for Kathy P is for Pop Q is for Queen ‘like me and Kathy’’ and quarter R is Ryleigh BETH!!!!

She also knows several of her sounds for the letters

LOVES LOVES LOVES to sing and dance… some fave songs are Deep and Wide and on the other spectrum Fergie ‘the girl’ – The Black Eye Peas and Carrie Underwood… I do not know how many times we have watched the Carrie Christmas Special.

Ryleigh is learning her numbers and recognizes most of the time 1-5. She likes to count aloud to about 11 or 12.

She likes to dress up in any kind of princess attire that can be found.

She loves to play outside

The Nail Salon is a fave stop of hers in town – along with Chick Fil A and McDonalds to play.

Her favorite food meal now is Chicken Nuggets French Fries and Cheese Sticks.

That’s pretty much sums up our little girl.

I will try to post some pics tomorrow.
