He's Walking!

Rylan is on the move now. July 24th, Ryan and I were trying to get him to walk (before he did it for someone else), and he did. We didn't really think it was going to happen, but we were so excited! He went back and forth between the two of us many times. We got just a little on video, but it is so great. He got more and more confident as he did it. Notice how he pushes Ryan's hands away. Everyone keeps saying, "now you're really going to have to baby proof", I really think this is going to be true when he can get his leg up on the couch. It is fun watching him get stronger and stronger.

He also got his first bloody lip that day, but that's just because he tripped over his own feet (probably like his mom :) ).

The Lake

We have spent so much time at the lake this summer. Here is one of the best pictures of Rylan thus far in his lake gear. Nana is looking great as well.

First Birthday

July 9th came way faster than expected. Rylan celebrated his first birthday with the extended family on hand. We had a great time sharing the day with everyone. Rylan enjoyed spontaneously playing in the pool with his cousins and eating his cake. On his actual birthday we went to the fair and met Rylan's second birthday buddy (Kel is the first). This gentleman was turning 83. He and his wife were so cute making faces at Rylan in the stroller. On his birthday Rylan was getting very good at pulling up. He was also putting his hands in the air to say "So big", and showing everyone his tongue. This is such a fun time! The only downfall is that he's growing so fast!
