A Day in the Life with Ryan and Daddy

First, we start with a little bit of tummy time.
I love practicing on Daddy!
Then we learn how to shave.
Daddy says I need to make sure I pay attention

After all that shaving, I decided to take a break and watch my fish. (I love my fish.)
And then I end the day with a picnic on our new grass.

Gramma and I - criminals I tell you

I found a picture from Halloween when I was younger and it made me laugh. I clearly take after her. :)

An early 30th birthday party for me!

We had some people to celebrate my 30th birthday (one week early) on the weekend.

Ryan was in charge of supervising cupcake decoration.

As soon as Marc went out to BBQ, it started to pour.
And I mean POUR.
The goodies. (I have also discovered that cake/cupcake decorating is not my forte. I will leave that to Mom and Marilee.)
Presenting the cupcakes!
Some of my closest girlfriends.
The festive decorations
Ryan was party pooped at the end. :)
All in all a good time. Thanks so much for everyone who came.

Ryan and Gramma are Twins

They have the same nose and the same head size. :)

Rollin', rollin', rollin'

Ryan rolled for the first time and I was so excited for him. (I cheered which I think may have confused him a little.)

Starting out: Moving to the side:
Flipped over into the worm position: (He may be a future breakdancer.)
Lifting his head up (ignore his crazy bald spot):
Almost there:
Ta da!!!
He's a genius I tell you.

Ryan's First Swimming Lesson

Looking less than enthused before his Starfish lesson. (Note how excited Marc is.)
Showing off his Little Swimmers
First dip in the water with Daddy
Daddy telling him how fun it is to swim
Practing his new move the "Out of water backstroke"
The two swimming buddies
On his way out of the water after his first dunk. (Note how much staying power his mohawk has.)
The after effect of swimming - wrinkly feet!
Close up of the wrinkled toes.

A boy and his donkey

Ryan had some fun over at Grandma and Grandpa's house this weekend. They have a wooden donkey in their yard that they have for over 20 years. Perfect for photos!
Profile shot of the mohawk. (His hair does this all on his own.)
And a gratuitous Canada Day family shot.

Happy Canada Day!!

It was an exciting first Canada Day here. We went to a friend's house for a BBQ and then off to see some fireworks. This was Ryan's first crazy holiday picture. (Our first without Gramma, but the hat he is wearing is the same one that Marc crammed onto Gramma's head last Christmas...)
He's not as into the photo shoot as we are.
All dressed up and ready to go.
Just hanging out with Mom.
He wasn't as excited by the fireworks as we were. He slept through most of them.
The only shot that we got of the actual fireworks.

Photo Shoot

We took Ryan for a photo shoot at the grocery store. This is the shot that we picked. I love his little smile.
