Catching up....

Ryan's had a busy month, and it’s time we post some pictures! He made his first visit to Grandma and Grandpa R's earlier in September. He wasn’t thrilled about the 6-hour drive to get there, but enjoyed meeting some of his great aunts and great uncles and some family friends (with many more to meet on our next visit, probably in late October). He loves having the attention of a new audience, and was a big ham the whole weekend.

(There's certainly no shortage of toys at Grandma and Grandpa's house!)

(But who needs toys when a water bottle provides so much entertainment?!)

(We can't get enough of those cheeks!)

Some other recent pictures....

(I love how Ryan and the dog have the same expression on their faces as they wait for Daddy to finish eating dinner and come play with them.)

(His typical response to "no -- don't touch.")

Playing Grandma G's piano:

Wait -- who says you have to play with your hands?!

This past weekend, we celebrated Ryan’s first birthday (which is on Monday). We’ll be posting those pictures shortly.

11 Months Old!

Ryan is 11 months old today! He learned to pull himself up to a standing position about 2 weeks ago, and has since become very proficient at it. He has also become quite the climber. He had a great time showing off his skills (and his big smile) for the camera last night.
