Crawling - Not Yet

Ryan is trying so hard these days to crawl and gets so frustrated. He gets on all fours rocks back and fourth and lets a big scream falling to his stomach. I think I am ready for him to be ALL over the place.

Lazy Weekend

We had a lazy weekend, it didn't help that Ryan is getting his 3rd tooth (the top one) so he was more cranky then normal. I can't say I blame him it has to hurt like hell. It rained all day on Saturday so not much we could do but Sunday we got out for a trip to the park and church. Yes, I have gone back to church. We are having Ryan baptized on February 21st in San Diego. The priest doing to baptism baptized Ted so it will be very special.

Cool Guy

Ryan really likes his sunglasses. He doesn't even touch the glasses. He has always been a little sensitive to light, it is those beautiful blue eyes. Ryan is definitely going through a stranger anxiety stage. It isn't that he wants me but he is seems scared of new faces. I had a long week at work this week so Ted brought him in and all he did was start to cry at all the new people and stare at them. It just tells me I need to take him around people more.
He is checking out his new vans from his Auntie Kelly! I think he likes them.

Congratulations to my cousin Brian and his wife Kassandra who had a beautiful baby girl on January 7th. Lily Weleck, 7 pounds 4 ounces and 19.5 inches.

Kassandra, I hope you don't mind me posting her picture, I just had to show everyone how beautiful she is!!!

Lovin the Swing!!!

Sorry for all the pictures of the same thing but I couldn't pick my favorite!! Ryan had his 6-month checkup and shots. I got a little emotional this time so we both had tears. He weighed in at 20 pounds, 27.5 inches long. Doctor asked if we were hoping for a tailback or a fullback.

Sitting Pretty

At Christmas Ryan wasn't sitting by himself but two days after we got home he was all on his own.

Happy New Year

Ryan is 6 months old today. I really can't believe it and it is really amazing what happens in 6 months. He has 2 teeth, can sit up on his own for short periods of time, up on all fours rocking back and forth, blabbing all the time, and eating all the new kinds of foods I give him.

Ryan is destined to be brainwashed with our love of football and the teams we follow. Some of you may not know that I am a Minnesota Vikings fan. It is a big week for football in our house. Today is the Rose Bowl with USC and Penn State. FIGHT ON!! Saturday the Arizona Cardinals are in the play offs for the first in who knows how long and Sunday the Vikings play. Skol Vikings Skol!!!

Happy Birthday Grandpa Charles (Ryan's great-grandpa).
We love you very much.
