The Cool Toys at Pop and Meemaw's

Mathews - Ryan went to visit Pop and Meemaw (his great-grandparents) over the weekend. Pop and Meemaw have several grandchildren, great-grandchildren and nieces and nephews, therefore they keep toys around whenever one stops by. Ryan and his cousin Belle had a good time playing while Mommy, Daddy, Grammy and PeePooh visited. He really liked chasing the remote control car.

Big Day in the City

Washington, DC - On Tuesday, Mommy's good friend Sara came to town with her kids Gabby and Zack. Mommy was able to take the day off and take Ryan downtown to meet them and enjoy the day. He rode the Metro for the first time (figuring out the elevator system was not much fun), he visitied the American History Museum, had lunch with Daddy, took a trip to the National Archives and finished up the day in the Sculpture Garden. It was hot, but super fun!

What a Week!

Woodbridge - In one weeks time, Ryan has accomplished so many new things.

He started to sit up unsupported for long periods.

He began holding his own bottle and feeding himself.

Speaking of eating, he finally found a vegetable he liked...carrots.

His first tooth broke through.

Not that it is new this week, but Ryan has also started standing on his own with a little help.

Whew, that is a lot for one week!

A Visit From Chloe
