lots of updates

I'm a bad blogger. I get mad when I visit blogs that haven't been updated, yet I leave mine neglected for weeks at a time. It's just hard to find time to download pics from the camera, edit them, upload them, and then try to be funny and witty. :-)

Anyway...lots of updates. Possibly not in chronological order, but I'll do my best.

July 1: Ryan becomes Catholic! Even though his mama isn't, Tony asked if Ryan could be baptized at St. Malachy and I agreed. Thanks to Jenni and Jason for agreeing to be Godparents!

Not the best pic, but the best one that was on my camera. People were supposed to be sending me the pics they took that day, but I haven't gotten any yet. Ahem! :-)

Crazy picture, this next one, but check out those eyes! So glad Ryan's eyes seem to be staying blue! Most pics I have of them, he has red eye, so I was SO excited to see this one. Even though he looks like one of those scary dogs on the greeting cards that have the huge heads and little bodies.

Rolling, rolling, rolling... yup. We had done it once or twice before, but now we can officially classify Ryan as a roller. Um, yeah. He was on his back when I went to use the bathroom. Guess the bed is no longer a safe haven!

First trip to the zoo. We went with Jenni, Leah, Kaden (Ryan's best friend), Jon, Angie, Isaac, and Rose (Ryan's girl friend). Ryan liked the elephants and this is us on the train.

And last but not least...drumroll please...we're eating solids. We started rice cereal at 4 months, and have now added bananas (picture 1) and green beans (picture 2) to our menu. Bananas were a huge hit, green beans seem to be tolerable (not as yummy, but more fun). :-)

Okay, Ryan is getting too wiggly for any more one-handed typing. Ta ta for now.


why do dumb people have to ruin everyone else's fun?

I really, really appreciate the people who take the time to leave a comment or send me an email about my blog. I do. Even if I don't know you, I always appreciate your kind words. But some dumbass keeps spamming my site with retarded comments, so I've switched the blog over to the moderated comments feature, which means your comment will be emailed to me and then I can either approve it or reject it. If you post anonymously, which most of you do, and I can't tell who the comment is from, it may get rejected. Unless, of course, your comment is about how cute my little guy is. Those will always make it through! :-)

Okay, I may be crazy, but I'm seriously considering switching to cloth diapers. Do you have any experience in this? If so, send me your thoughts!

Ryan's first trip to the zoo is on Sunday, so look for updated pics next week! He's going with his best friend AND his girlfriend (plus their older siblings), so it should be quite an adventure! Have a great weekend!


best friends

Ryan had a built-in best friend when MY best friend Jenni gave birth to her little boy Kaden, just a few weeks after Ryan was born. Kaden's big sister Leah just turned 2, and we took these pictures of the boys at her b-day party. Don't they look like they'll be up to no good in just a few more years? :-)


new pics

We had Ryan's picture taken on June 24 and got the prints last night! I couldn't wait to share! Isn't my guy just the cutest thing you've ever seen?
