Ryan's family came to stay with us over New Year's. Ryan got tickets to the Cactus and Fiesta Bowl games through Hertz. Everyone ended up getting sick, it was pretty miserable. Half the family was puking and the other half was congested. Hannah had it pretty bad and had goop in her eyes. She looked terrible.
My sister Tara and her family also stopped by for a night on their way home from San Diego. Good to see them and kiddos and my Aunt and Uncle Jones were in town too, so Cindy and them came over too. Cindy's boy is Hannah's age so it was fun to see them interact.
Yummy yummy glucose test
Jan 13th we bought Hannah her own twin bed. We didn't force her in it and asked her if she wanted to sleep in her crib or the bed. It took her a few days but eventually she asked to sleep in it.
She came out of her room at night and for naps for about a week, but now she does just fine.
We love Phoenix in January..
She doesn't use her feet or steer but she lets me push her down the driveway over and over again.
For Christmas I got Ryan an Xtreme Xperience to drive a supercar on a racetrack. He chose to drive the Nissan GTR. We paid extra to have it recorded but when he got home there was nothing on the disk. He called and they told him to come back next week and they'll let him do it again. He paid to do it twice and also drove the Audi R8. He took Braxton with him and let him sit in the driver's seat of the lead car for his birthday gift. He loved it.
At the park one day Hannah made friends with this little boy. They followed each other around the playground and he let her play with his dump truck. When it was time for him to go Hannah followed and they ended up playing for awhile more on the grass. It was so cute to watch them.
Ryan went to the Phx Open again this year, but this time he went opening day. There were less crowds and he got to sit and watch all day. Plus he got to watch Tiger Woods play, so he liked that.
That night we went to the Bird's Nest Concert and saw Darius Rucker. We had VIP tickets so we had this private side balcony and unlimited food and drinks. It was really hard to hear him from where we were, but it was fun. He puts on such a great concert.
This picture makes me laugh because it looks like she's taking a selfie.
Our rental storage unit got broken into. It makes me so mad when people do things like this!
Ryan got invited to the Wheels Up Superbowl Party. There were a lot of celebrities there and Ryan actually got pictures! Having the Superbowl in PHX was crazy for him. He was really busy during the 1st quarter with this, the bowl games and the PHX open and baseball spring training, but he gets a lot of perks which makes it fun.
Nick Jonas was the entertainment for the evening. Ryan said he had a ton of bodyguards.
Hannah tidbits @ 26 months:
Says finish your eggs, finish your milk. I signed her up for a Tumbling Tots class at the Rec Center. This was her first class without me present. She had fun from what I could see. The teacher would stamp their hands at the end of class and Hannah hated that. She screamed when she got one and just wanted it off. She'll grab her library books and say "read to me." She can quote her books. She recognizes letters and numbers. I find it harder to understand her than last month. She will tell the cats to get off the table! Says "car-size" for exercise. She found a sun shape and said "sunbeam!" she must've learned that song from nursery. She prefers drinking from a cup now. I have been teaching her letters with her megabloks. N for Nancy, D for Daddy, E for Elmo etc. She can point out a letter and say "Nancy" or "Fish" for F.
