Rylyn's Favorites

I know it's been a couple of weeks since i updated the blog. I wanted to let everyone know that Rylyn is doing very well. This past week daddy taught her how to wave. She mostly likes waving to herself and cracking herself up but on the rare occasion she will wave to others as well. She loves any and all food (not quite enough to put it in her mouth all by herself) but she is very interested in what everyone is eating. She has tried lasagna, tacos, hamburger, bread, carrots, peas, green beans, peaches, mangos, bananas, pears, oatmeal, tomatoes, cheese, pickles, olives, pasta, mushrooms, watermelon, turkey, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, apples, etc. She actually doesn't like plain yogurt but, who does? She is a little over 10 months old now and weighs about 17lbs. She loves, loves, loves any and all water. Baths and the pool are her favorite. We just got a new pool float that she thinks is great. She is the fastest crawler ever. Every time I look up she is somewhere new. She is pulling herself up on any and everything. She enjoys chasing Poggy around the house and pulling his hair out. Pog tried to avoid her whenever possible. Her favorite things to do besides swimming are smiling, stroller rides, being around others, crawling, standing, looking at books, short car rides and making babbling noises. Her least favorite things are not getting enough attention, getting her diaper changed, putting clothes on and going to bed. We are very blessed that she is progressing so well and have such a happy and healthy daughter!

Rylyn progress

Just a quick update, Rylyn is eating all sorts of things. She loves pickles and sweet potatoes best. She is almost 17 pounds and she's crawling all over the place. She is a very determined child. She wants very much to walk and is on her way. I would say within the month, she will be walking. She is sleeping VERY well. She's the happiest baby I've ever met (excluding putting clothes on, if you don't feed her fast enough, or if she isn't getting quite enough attention.)

Rylyn's Going to be a Big Sister

We have been home about two weeks now and are adjusting well. Rylyn is now off Taiwan time and is sleeping well. We put her down around 9pm and she wakes up around 8am. Yay! We also found out that Rylyn is going to be a big sister. I am due October 14th. We find out in 3 weeks if it's a boy or a girl. The Darley household has turned upside down in the past two weeks. It has been a huge learning experience. Being a parent is wonderful but it's hard work! ; ) We are so glad to have our baby girl home.
