What a Weekend

Out with the old and in with the new!!

It has now come the time where Rylee will move from her crib to her new big girl bed. Last weekend she voluntarily wanted to sleep in my bed at my parents house and did so with out a peep. I thought this is my chance. . . ran out bought her the bed, sheets (my mom found), comforter, and pillow!! Chris and I were prepared to do the transition this weekend. Thursday we dismantled the crib, moved it into Brady's room, brought up the big girl bed, assembled the rails, made the bed and it was timmmmmmmmeeeeeeee!!!!

Thursday night we put her to bed and she loved it "night night mama" and down she went!! I looked at Chris and said this has to be to good to be true . . . famous last words right?? Down without a peep at 8:00pm . . . .up screaming at 10:00pm . . . not because she hated the bed but because she was sick!!! Great, the weekend we pick to do the bed transition is also the weekend she gets sick. High fever, snot, watery eyes and drool like you can't imagine.

Friday not only Rylee gets sick but now I am sick (same symptoms minus the drool) . . . Sick baby and sick preggo mommy not a good combo for a healthy daddy!! At least one of us is well . . . Friday and Saturday night there is no sleeping by anyone in the Hlinka home, and to make it worse, Rylee is now complaining that her teeth hurt. Sick, compounded by environmental change and 2yr old molars attempting to come in is not a fantastic combo.

Chris is so great, he took Rylee to the park so I could sleep and made all meals for us . . . He really is the best Dadda/Husband in the world. Although just as I am typing this he mentions he now has a sore throat. . . I knew he couldn't escape it.

Hopefully Monday will bring healthy Hlinka's with more energy and less snot.

Needless to say the big girl bed transition was a 75% success!! She is taking great naps in it, not getting out without calling for me and going down like an angel . . . Now if we can get her healthy enough to sleep through the night it will be 100% success!!

Spring Break 2010

Spring Break 2010

This year Rylee's Birthday fell on Easter Sunday so we had a double celebration!!
We must have sang Happy Birthday a million times, she loved singing and blowing out the candles

We spent Easter Sunday in Newport Beach . . . Aunt B and Scott were there and Rylee got to hunt for eggs multiple times because Scott and Chris kept hiding them after she would find them all!!

Bryn is the best aunt in the world she rode Rylee up and down the street and Rylee would yell Weeeeeee every time she would pass us. She really loves riding on the back of the bike.We had 2 good beach days and Rylee could have stayed out on the beach all day eating sandy BP&J and playing with boys she met on the beach.

Fun little family picture!!

Angle's opening day was Grrrrreat!! Rylee had her Angle's garb on, rally monkey in hand and a bag full of popcorn . . . What more could she want. She loves going to the games and being part of the action. She flirts with the boys behind us, adores the guy that sits next to us, high fives and claps at every exciting moment, and tries to flag down every vendor that walks up or down the aisle!!

Of course during 7th inning stretch she got up on JJ's shoulders and got on TV!! We got many texts and phone calls from people telling us they saw her on TV. . . how exciting!!

Rylee's best friend at the beach is Jace. They play the piano together, and love to go play at the park. It is so fun that Rylee has a friend her age to play with at the beach, they are so cute together and we just love him. . .you never know what could happen down the road. . . I think that Aunt B and Scott have a picture that looks kinda like this hint hint!! Thanks for coming down Heather and playing with us we had such a fun time with you guys, next Spring Break there will be 4. . Aghhhhh!!!

It was a great week in Newport Beach for spring break. We are so lucky that Mimi and Grandpa let us take over their house, let us throw our toys and clothes all over the place and still invite us back the following weekend! Yaya got to take the whole week off to and be with us and I don't think that I could ever do without her, she is the biggest help ever!!! She gets the award for best mom and Yaya ever (she learned from the best!!)
1st Annual Spring Break in the books!!
