Roly Polly

It was bound to happen.  We put her to sleep on her tummy and we walked in to find her like this.  I was in denial about it and then she did it in front of me.  She looks surprised when she does it- like she isn't quite sure how she ended up on her back.  Baby Polly is hitting milestones.  Every first for her is a mommy last for me, so it is bittersweet.  Glad our little girl is growing and healthy but I love her being little.

Six Year Letters to Ryan

Dear Ryan,

Holy moly! You are six and about to be a first grader! I cannot believe it. You have grown so much this past year. It has been a busy year but you have excelled at everything you did.  You started elementary school and are in the accelerated reading program, you acted in theater all year and performed in a play, you did tap and ballet and performed at the recital, you played t-ball, you did Girl Scouts, you became a big sister again to Polly! You have so many friends at school and are described as 'nice to everyone'. What a year! I am so proud of you, especially for the big sister that you are to both Emma and Polly.  You are such a sweet girl and you are full of love.  Thanks for all the fun and all of the smiles this past year.  Love you so much my Munch.




Happy 6th Birthday. I can't believe how fast you are growing. You have been such a good sister and inspiration to Emma and Polly. It makes me so proud to see you getting smarter everyday. I love you so much! Thank you for being my daughter. 



Ryan is SIX!

We had a Tinkerbell themed birthday party at ASI gymnastics with all of Ryan's friends. Then, on her actual birthday we had a family dinner at Babes Chicken and Ryan got to pick out her first pet- Fiona the fish! We had a great time celebrating our big girl!
