Happy Birthday to my Momma!

Happy Birthday to my Momma. The one that has been there for me through it all. Throughout my childhood, when I was off at college, through my pregnancy, in the delivery room when I had Ryan, and through the first year of my child's life. She has been there and helped me every step of the way. I would be nowhere without my mom. I love you momma! ♥

And the Cutest Costume goes to...

. . .RYAN! We went to a Halloween party tonight (well technically yesterday since it's after midnight). Ryan's Halloween costume this year is a skeleton! I think he looks adorable in it, and I must not be being bias because at the party he won cutest costume. He even got a prize and a medal!

Here's my little skeleton! So freaking cute!
Here he is wearing his "cutest costume" medal!

I can't wait for Halloween this year. I'm going to let Ryan go up to a few doors this year (with me of course) since he is walking this year and I can't wait to see him being a big boy with the other kids. Oh and I get to eat his candy too so that is a plus!

Here's Ryan on Halloween last year. My cute little pumpkin certainly has changed a lot in one year!

No Longer A Baby..

Well, my baby is no longer a baby. He had his 1st birthday last Saturday. I can't believe how big he is getting. He has been walking for a month now (since September 27) and is always on the go! It seems like every day he has learned a new trick. He is such a sweet little boy and has been very affectionate lately, which Momma likes a lot!

Here's the Birthday Boy with his cakes!

It seems like a lot has happened in the past few weeks, but I can't seem to think of anything to write so I'll give a few stats on Ryan, add a couple recent pictures, and call it a post.

Ryan now has four teeth. Two on the top and two on the bottom.  We had our WIC appointment today and Ryan was just over 29 inches long and 21.5 lbs (with clothes on). He has his one year appointment on Tuesday so we will see the real stats are then. Usually WIC is a little off on the measurements. He says lots of things including ball, hello, and giraffe. His favorite toys at the moment are trucks, cars, and really anything with wheels. Ry just started taking my phone or a remote and putting it by his ear saying hello. It is the cutest thing! Also, as I already said he is walking. He hardly crawls anymore and it is a bit sad. They grow up so quickly. Every day he seems so much older!
