Flashback Friday

My best friend Ashley told me about FLASHBACK FRIDAY. It's something her friend does with her blog and I think it's a great idea. So in honor of Ashley's stolen idea here's a flashback of ASHLEY!!!

I went to Disneyland this morning for a few hours (my parents guilted me into it... long story... not worth telling) Anyway - I was at Disneyland today and I passed by the Sword in the Stone by the Carousel ride and I remembered the time that Ashley and I tried to get the sword out of the stone... we failed of course but took some fun pictures. I loved going to Disneyland with Ashley - especially when we were younger and would go on vacation to Disneyland for like a week at a time! FUN TIMES!!! I love you Ashley and I can't wait to go to Disneyland with our kids in a few weeks!!!

Pretty Boy

Yesterday I was at Kelly Paper with Ryan and there were 2 salesmen helping me and they were talking to Ryan and he was smiling and being all cute. Then one of the salesmen asked... "Is that a girl or a really pretty boy?" I thought that was the funniest question ever! Especially since Ryan was wearing plaid shorts and a blue shirt... But I do think he is a very pretty baby :)

He loves to look at himself in the mirror. He helps me get ready in the morning. He hands me my brush. Sometimes he likes the lick the brush... we're working on that one.He also goes through my make-up bag and hands me whatever I need...
Like for instance my eyelash curler :)

On Sunday when we got home from church - he was a really tired baby! But I was really hungry and couldn't hold him to get him to fall asleep. So I made him a bottle and put him on the floor on his back... Thinking that he would eat and then I would pick him up after I ate and he would have a nice nap.
However, he rolled on his tummy and fell asleep! It was soo cute! I put a blanket over him and he took a 2 hour nap!

Also - I got a picture of him pointing today - so cute! I love when he points :)

Thankful Thursday!

So my best friend Ashley gave me a suggestion to do "Flashback Fridays" - apparently her friend does that and I thought it was a super good idea. So I will be doing that as well, but I also wanted to do "Thankful Thursday". This will be the first edition :)

Today I'm really thankful for my husband. I'm thankful that he works hard so that I can stay home with Ryan. I do work a little bit but not a whole lot and I'm able to bring my son to work if I need to. But I'm thankful for Ben's work ethic - he puts all that his has into his company ( and, his calling as Young Men's President and his family. I'm thankful that Ben is a good father. The other day when Ben came home from work, Ryan was sitting on the floor playing with some toys and as soon as he saw his dad he started jumping in his seat and said: "DADADADDDAAADADADA" It was probably the cutest thing ever! So to recap... I'M REALLY THANKFUL FOR MY HUSBAND!

Ryan wants to blog too!

Ryan was so excited about his mommy starting to blog that he wanted to post one... So I thought I would let him

Ryan loves desks! Especially his Daddy's and his Papa Tom's! He loves to pull the papers off the desk and grab at anything within his reach. At his Papa's house he even has his own "mouse" that he can move around the desk. At his Daddy's work he has his very own keyboard to type on! He is a very curious boy and likes to explore everything. Recently he has started pointing with one finger at things. He is very gentle and will try to touch things very softly while pointing. SO CUTE!

It's About TIME!

So I haven't blogged in quite a while... The reason is simple. No one ever reads my blogs! But I'm going to try and change that. I will start blogging more regularly because frankly it's fun. I have learned that blogs can be just about anything (Thanks Jeremy for teaching me that!) I would blog on MySpace, but I hate MySpace - I do love, however, FACEBOOK! You all should have a facebook profile. Muy funo!

Well today I am at work... or and I like working but I really miss my baby boy! I don't know how Ben can do it - go to work ALL day long and not see our baby! He is just about the cutest thing I've ever seen - I might be a bit biased though :)
Anyway - Our family is doing good - we work hard and that's about it :) So I am going to blog more - so come back soon and see what interesting things will be here!!!
