Happy 4th of July

Other than Rylee having some kind of bug at the beginning of the weekend, we all had a great 4th! Friday evening Rylee had a temp of 103, but luckily it went down by the time she went to bed. She still had a little bit of a temp on Saturday, but not as high. Finally, on Sunday, she didn’t have a fever and seemed to be back to her normal goofy self.

We celebrated the 4th of July at some friends’ house and Rylee got to go swimming for the first time in an actual pool (not just the baby pool we have in the back yard). She loves baths and she loves her baby pool, but I wasn’t sure how she was going to do in an actual pool, but she LOVED it! We bought her a little floaty, and once she got in that thing, she just started kicking away – enough to even move through the water a little! Her little legs wouldn’t stop :) Rylee also did really good with the fireworks, they didn’t scare her a bit. She just watched all the bright colors in the sky. After we got home, I never thought she would go to sleep with all the noise going on outside, but the swimming must have worn her out because she slept right through everything.

Rylee also got her first kiss this weekend from her friend Hunter – right smack on the lips even! John couldn’t get mad because it was too cute, but he might have to watch out for that little boy in a couple of years.

Let’s see, what else…Rylee now has 6 teeth! The latest ones have definitely been the worst yet, which may have caused part of the problem with the fever she had. She is now saying momma and dadda all the time and I think she even tries to say Maggie! I am already starting to plan for her 1st birthday party and ordered some supplies from Oriental Trading Co. I actually bought her 1st birthday outfit probably 4 months ago! We are going with a cupcake theme, which stems from her outfit, so hopefully it turns out cute.

Here are a few pics from our 4th celebration:
