World's Best Uncle & Updates

They were watching Baby Einstein...Good stuff!

Hey you!

Just get away from me...

Rylan was laying hands on Chase and praying for him... :) Chase was feeling it too!

I knew Chase would be an awesome uncle the moment I told him that Butch and I were expecting. He was so excited for us and excited to be an uncle! Now that Rylan is here, he just can't get enough of Rylan, and Rylan clearly loves his Uncle Chase! We've spent a lot of time with him in the past week and Chase is experiencing some of the "not-so-pretty" moments of Rylan's life - like the crying (not the sad crying - I'm talking about MAD cries!) and bucking wild attitude he has developed...haha. Chase is asking the question any guy would ask, "Why is he doing that?" I have lots of answers to that question because there are MANY reasons...and MANY different cries that he has. It's so neat how a mother develops this instinct of knowing what her child needs based on the type of cry he is letting out. Now of course there are times when you just don't know what is wrong, but for the most part you develop that sixth sense.
Just an update on accomplishments: Rylan has successfully started holding onto his feet and toes 24/7...haha. He doesn't want to let go. It seems to be the most fun he has EVER! You can lay him in the bed one way and walk in there a few minutes later and he's turned the opposite he does it, I have no idea. He's also making the funniest noises out of his little mouth - and yes, they sometimes draw attention like they did in church Wed. night. We had half of the section we were seated by rolling! (well Rylan did anyway.) He is so much fun now. Ry laughs and talks and holds your face in his hands (and you feel so special!)...I just can't believe he will be 5 months old's incredibly hard to believe. I never knew your children grew so fast! I just want to stop time and just enjoy him so very much. Especially since I have started working I feel like I'm missing out on important things during his day. It does break my heart, but it's just a season in life. God knows best!
