15 Months, 5 Days and we FINALLY have a walker!

Lilah is by FAR the latest walker of the family. I wasn't sure if she'd ever do it, but she is just the type who wanted to be sure she really had it down before she took off! She is doing SO great with walking now, it's hard to believe that just a few days she wasn't do it at all! She's even wearing regular shoes and doing great with them. It's so funny because I thought for sure she'd be our earliest walker since she was our earliest crawler...but I guess they all do things in their own time. She's has also started babbling a LOT lately...it's so fun to hear her chattering. One day she may start talking too! My mom said that one day she'd come walking down the stairs speaking in full sentences...you just never know! It's interesting to see how different each person is and how wonderful our creative God is!

Cute Little Boys

I just love how my boys love to match each other. Luke will often choose pj's that match (if they have them) or the same color shirt, just so he and Aaron match. It's absolutely darling

Baby "Why-Why" is 1 Month Old!

I've always said that with every child, time goes by faster and faster. It's been true for every pregnancy and true for every child. It's crazy. Ryan (or Why-Why as Aaron calls him) is already a month old. I cannot believe it. He's growing so quickly he can barely squeeze into newborn clothes anymore. He's able to stay awake a bit longer and is making nice eye contact. He smiles quite a bit and tries to eek out little sounds here and there. He really is a delightful little baby. As long as he's fed and changed and put to bed when he's tired, he's content. We are truly blessed.

Crashed out little guy...I think he was having a growth spurt, I couldn't wake him up for ANYTHING this day

Ryan's cute outfit from Auntie Julie--it says, "Captain Cutie, Reporting for Duty"

Big sister Savannah...I love this photo because it looks like she's holding a little doll. He's wearing a darling sweater that was crocheted by a friend of ours.

First Bath--10 Days Old

This morning when Ryan woke up, I changed his diaper and was elated to find out that his umbilical cord had fallen off!! :) I just love this first milestone because not only does it make diaper changes that much easier, it also means he can FINALLY take a real bath. Now, I realize that newborns don't get really "dirty", but it's nice to get them all fresh and clean and to see how they react to taking a nice little soak. Ryan seems to like being quite warm, so he didn't LOVE it as much as he might have if it had been warmer, but he didn't hate it either. He really did not like when I got him out and had to dry him off. Poor little guy. Oh well, one day he'll be taking baths with his older siblings and having a grand time of it...for now, well, he's just a little guy. BTW: I would have taken lots of photos, but my flash batteries are dead and I have no more...and getting to Costco isn't all that easy these days. I took a couple of photos, so hopefully I'll have one or two to post when I get to it.
