San Diego & Danny & Megan's Wedding

Rylee had a blast at the San Diego Zoo!
 She LOVED the bears, snakes, monkeys, elephants, polar bears, bus, trees, people, flowers, & pretty much everything. She loved the entire experience. The only thing I can think of she didn't like, was the kids standing in front of her stroller so she couldn't see the animals. She would look at Chris and I, with a look of begging, "please hold me, these kids are too tall."
 It was hard to get her to look at the camera, she preferred to look at the animals.
 She makes great bear growling sounds! And she signs "bear" as she does it. She usually does great monkey sounds and signs too, but may have been too overwhelmed by seeing actual monkeys?

 San Diego Zoo 2012 - Francom Family Fun!
 Had a great time with Grandpa Francom. She gets so excited when she sees him.
 Woke up from her nap just in time to go to Uncle Danny's wedding.
 The 1st kiss as husband & wife, Danny & Megan Francom. Congratulations!
OK, I'm going to have to figure out how to turn these pictures. They're not saved like this on my computer. AGH!

 Best friends.
 Our family, for a little while...
Rylee enjoying her time in the hotel room. We had a great view of the pool. She walked around yelling "Pool! Pool!" whenever she could. She went swimming twice, even though it was quite chilly. I preferred the hot tub, but Chris played in the pool with her.
 She wishes her Uncle Danny lived closer!
 Getting ready to fly back to Utah. She's fascinated by airplanes, though I don't think she completely understood we were on one. She did great on the flights though! I swear my baby is an angel.

18 Months

How time flies! My baby is 1 1/2 years old tomorrow. I will soon be done referring to her age in months. Won't that be weird? I remember the days I used years to define things. Then you get pregnant and it changes to weeks. Then you have a baby and it changes to months. I long for the day I get to use years again.

She can turn anything into a toy. She's playing with the top to the essential oil diffuser here. She's quite creative. Her other favorites include my hair clips, necklaces, Chris's belts, and her wipes. She loves to wipe her face and anything else she comes into contact with. She's a clean freak already. I'm so proud!

She's quite a fan of ice cream cones. Very fun trip to Arctic Circle. She loves going down the slide. She's getting to the point of no fear, which causes TONS of fear in me!

 We're hoping she'll be our little baller. Either that, or she'll be our gangsta.

We're having our first family photos, since Rylee was born, done next week. I'll post them as soon as we get them. Soon after, we'll be headed to San Diego, CA for our first family vacation. Well, the first one including a flight and a stay in a hotel anyway. I'm nervous! I would love any suggestions veteran travelers have for me. Chris's brother, Danny, will be getting married. It should be a lot of fun!
