1 month old!!!!! CANT BELIEVE IT!

Mom and I went to Portrait Innovations on Saturday and had Rylan's 1 month old pictures taken. He stayed awake the entire time so we got some really great pictures!! They took like 62 different pictures, and it was so hard to narrow down what we liked the most. I was so very proud of him though. I can't wait to go back for his 2 month old pictures! It was so much fun!! Hopefully he will be able to smile for his pictures next time.
By the way, Rylan is doing exceptional at night. He does have his nights that he likes to stay awake and just wants to be snuggled. I don't mind snuggling him though. He is growing up so fast and I know he won't always want to be snuggled up and cuddled. I am so thankful I have him. Butch and I have enjoyed every moment with him. We are so shocked at how fast he is growing. We look at pictures and can't believe how much he has changed already. But it's an awesome experience. We love being parents!!!

He is so much fun!!!

Time Is Flying

1 week old

2 weeks old

3 weeks old

My baby boy is getting so big! Rylan is already holding his head up a lot and last night when Butch was feeding him a bottle he put his little hands around the bottle and held it by himself!!! He's growing up way too fast. I'm trying to capture every moment but it almost seems impossible! It's an amazing adventure and I'm loving every minute of it.

Rylan's Room

I forgot to post some final pictures of our little cowboy's room. We are not completely finished with it, but it's getting there. We have a few more things to add to the walls, but other than that, nothing else will fit!! Let me know what you guys think about it. If there are any suggestions, let me know.

Mother's Day

I had a fabulous FIRST Mother's Day! Even though after church it decided to pour down rain, by the time Butch, Rylan and I got home it was sunny and we got to take some good pictures. Being a mommy is so awesome and I am loving every minute of it.
