2010 v. 2011

2010 Ry

2011 RY

What a difference a year can make to a growing child!! It is kinda depressing to think how much he has grown up. I want to think of him as a baby still, but in reality, he is far from it. He will be starting preschool next year! That is just unreal. My little man is actually a very active toddler and not a baby anymore. I'm so proud of his accomplishments. He is starting to say his ABC's and he likes to count like this, "24242"...it's hilarious. But we're working on him!

I can't wait to see what another year will bring. The changes, experiences, and all the love he can give!

October - Fall & Pumpkin Patch

Week at Grandma's

Ry had a fun, fun time with his baby cousin, Brennan. He was a great caretaker as you can tell. He just made a big fuss over him. Brennan didn't really know what to think, but Ry didn't care! Big kisses for Brennan

"My turn, My turn" he said as I was preparing the bottle. LOL

Baby Brennan

"What is happening here???"

He loves his cousin (cause he can't steal his toys yet!)

Park Day With Daddy

This was another day at the park. Butch was able to come so I let him in on my photo shoot! LOL They had a fun time together. My two guys are the best.

New haircut!!

Rylan got his big boy haircut that I really didn't like at first. He had long bangs and more hair for the longest time and we got it cut really short. We spiked it for a while and then we did the faux hawk (when it got a little longer). We are finally to a point now that we can comb it down and it looks ok. Haha.

He is definitely the sweetest kid I know...of course I'm going to say that; he's mine!! I really need help with one thing though - how do I get him to sleep in his own bed??? He will fall asleep in there, but he will still come get between Butch and me in the middle of the night. We may just have to get a king size bed!!

Ry is still very in love with horses. I don't know why I thought this would just be a phase. We took him to the Racking Horse Celebration 2011 in Decatur and he was fascinated...for a while. He couldn't really get up close and personal with the horses because it was a show, so he lost interest a lot faster than we thought. We did get him some REAL cowboy boots and he doesn't like to take them off! He would sleep in them if I would allow him. He LOVES his boots.

Sept. 23, 2011

My PawPaw went Home to be with the Lord on Sept. 23. I am rejoicing in the knowledge of knowing that he is walking streets of gold and he is able to see and walk. I've prayed for years that he would regain his sight and when God decided to take him, He answered my prayer. I may not have seen that miracle on earth, but I know once he was absent in body, he was present with the Lord; therefore, he was able to see.

I have been very blessed to have had two grandfathers that never waivered from the Truth. They believed in being filled with the Holy Ghost and baptized in the precious name of Jesus and living in holiness. Thank God for these precious men of God that will forever be remembered.

Day at the Park

Wow, I have let a lot of time go by without posting anything. My little man is growing up so fast. We went to the Springville Park about a month and a half ago and I took some pictures of Ry with the beautiful scenery that is there. The lighting and the weather were perfect! He does good most of the time. He was more interested in playing on the "swide" (aka, slide). LOL. But the slide was a good bribe for him to sit/stand still for some photos for mommy. :)
