Daddy and Me Swim Lesson's

So what if our class is called "Mommy and Me" swim lessons! Ryan has a super involved Daddy and he doesn't like to miss anything she is involved in. Although I love taking the class with her, I had so much fun watching the two of them! She is doing so good! Three more classes to go.
Ryan always listens closely to what Mr. Clay has to say

She is getting so good at putting her face in the water

They are so sweet together.

Our Sunshine

Ryan had a good week. We spent a lot of time outside because the weather was gorgeous and it is little girl's favorite place to be. Chris and I worked on Saturday, but Mamaw and Grandpa took Ry to her cousin Eliana's birthday party. Ryan got to see lots of family and play with the other kids.

Ryan is SO MOBILE now! She is all over the place. We have to keep a close eye on her because she is on the move. She is pulling up to stand on everything. She is creeping along furniture, and I don't think it will be long before she takes some steps. This girl works up a sweat standing and is pooped by the end of the day!

AND........we have two teeth! YAY RYAN!

Usually when I drive up from work Ryan and her Dad are playing in the yard

and Molly

Standing up to show off her cute outfit!

(Ryan's wardrobe is better than mine)

Eating grass

Mommy and Daddy enjoy a cold beer, then Ryan enjoys the empty bottle

MAJOR bed head!

It is hard to see, but she has a mohawk!

She loves her books

(I gave up on putting them away)

We aren't sure but we think Ryan weighs at least 22 lbs (we will find out Tuesday at her 9 month Dr. visit). She has outgrown her other car seat and has moved into a big girl seat! Won't be long until she will be sitting forward in this bad boy!

Crackin' Up At Daddy

Busy Butterfly

The Munch was making people smile once again! My mom had four friends come and visit this past weekend and Ryan got to meet them all! She had a great time being the center of attention. So glad Mamaw has such good friends and we hope they visit more often!

Swim Lesson #4

(Mamaw came to watch and cheer and photograph!)

Ryan kicked her way all the way across the pool without help from Mommy!

Playing piano with Mamaw

Get ready for the butterfly/ballerina photoshoot! :)

She is climbing stairs!!!

We are planting them

this weekend

Highlights from this week: Chris has been in a two week class at work so Ryan has spent extra time with Mamaw, Grandpa, Gran and Aunt Mis (thanks to all who helped us out!)

I think we will have a tooth by next post.

Ryan sat in a booster chair tonight at dinner!!! Such a big girl.
