Chilly Fun Weekend

Friday morning my cousin Crystal came up from Houston with her husband Rick to spend the weekend looking for baby stuff. She is due in April with her first and I have been helping her with her nursery. Rylin immediately became attached to her and wanted nothing to do with me. Poor prego Crystal carried him everywhere Friday while we were shopping, and then he cried and cried every time she left the room to do anything. He hasn't even had separation anxiety like that with me! Luckily he has since recovered, but I'm not sure what he sensed about her that brought out this side of him. Perhaps he knows that she's carrying his cousin?! We did have a lot of fun shopping and we can't wait for the baby to arrive!

Sunday, we got a big snow and I was excited to get Rylin out to play. Last year he was so little when we got our first snow. So we bundled up, headed outside and he loved it! He was very concerned with eating as much as he could cram in his mouth, and it didn't take long for me to realize he needed gloves. After a mini melt down because I brought him inside, Jordan took him back out with Duke and they ran around some more. Those rain boots from Christmas sure came in handy!


  1. Yay! I'm not sure if I knew Crystal was preggers! Congrats to she and her hubby! :) Hopefully this year will bring the same blessing for Kyle and I. (After I make the roller derby league of course!) Can't really get on skates with a bun in the oven.
