Flashback Photo of the Week

A year ago we took Ryan to his very first State Fair.  Here he is playing with Belle in the corn box. 

Road Trip

What do you do when you are on a road trip?  If you are Ryan, you dump your whole basket of toys over your head and throw them all over the floor.

Car Kind of Built for Two

Gloucester - Ryan and Belle Proved that a Cozy Coupe can accomodate one preschooler and one toddler.  They drove around just like this for a few minutes.

Saturday Morning Play

Gloucester - On Saturday morning Ryan had a fun time playing with his cousin Belle.  Check out Mr Independent doing the slide on his own and see-sawing.

Flashback Photo of the Week

Here is Ryan and Daddy playing a year ago.  Ryan got giggling so much.  He was just starting to laugh at this point.  He had been smiling for sometime, but finally we got some good belly laughs.

Here is a link to the original post to hear his giggles.

Up A Tree

Woodbridge - While playing outside, Daddy put Ryan up a tree.  The little monkey did not want to get down.

Chocolate Pudding

Woodbridge - For a snack on Saturday, Ryan enjoyed chocolate pudding.  This was his first taste of chocolate pudding.  We think he liked it.

Elmo Hat

Woodbridge - As many may already know, Elmo is VERY popular in our house.  Every morning we watch Elmo's World while doing a breathing treatment.  We have Elmo toys, Elmo stuffed animals and Elmo DVDs.  We even watch Elmo online.  Mammy gave Ryan his cousin Belle's old Elmo Easter basket.  Sometimes he will put other toys in it and carry it around, sometimes he will just carry it around empty.  Ryan has found a new use for his Elmo basket...a hat.  He kind of looks like the Grand Poobah of the Water Buffalo.

Self Potrait

This is what Ryan looks like taking a picture of himself.

Flashback Photo of the Week

A year ago Ryan was on the move.  He was getting really good at the army crawl.  Here he is trying to go somewhere and giving one of his "How you doin" looks.

The Benefits of Baking

Woodbridge - Daddy and Mommy made brownies today to take to their football draft.  Ryan reaped the benefits by having the chance to lick the bowl.  This was the first time he ever had the opportunity.  Now Mommy is going to have to share it this delicious treat of baking. (Unfortunately baking does not happen very often in our house)

Don't Talk...Wheel of Fortune Is On

This is what it is like to try to talk to Ryan while Wheel of Fortune is on.  Notice being totally ignored and very interested in the TV.  This could be only the beginning to a long love affair with TV.

Corn On the Cob

Woodbridge - As summer is winding down, Ryan tried his first bit of corn on the cob.  After a little lesson in what to do with it, he dug right in.


Whenever we pull out the camera, Ryan says cheese.  We gave him the old camera to play with for a little while and he walked around saying, "Cheese, Cheese, Cheese."
