Happy Birthday!

I love to remember this day, looking this HUGE.
9lbs 1oz baby is a lot of baby for a 5’1″ momma.
 Much happier with him in my arms here!
He’s always been my snuggler.
Still is.    
 Aww, snuggling and drinking his milk
Here is Linus.  
Such a cutie!
I can’t believe how fast the time goes.
This one is a family favorite.
Look at those bubba cheeks!
Last summer at the drive-in theater.
This was on Tuesday, Oct. 11th, 2011.
He was ready to go play, hunt, kill with his silver painted nerf gun. 
I especially love the bandanna and sunglasses.
Sometimes God gives you the unexpected in life.
Ryan was the surprise baby in our family. 🙂
My boys are 14 months apart and those early days were 
difficult, crazy, wonderful, but I wouldn’t trade them for anything!
Some times I would like those days back just for a little while.
Just to remember completely.
I’m so thankful for the children God has blessed us with!
I pray they grow up to become what God wants them to be, 
and that their desires in life are His desires.
Happy Birthday, Ryan!
I. Love. You!

  1. happy birthday, ryan! and emily, i cannot BELIEVE you were that big. or that your kids were that close. wow. i don't know how you did it in those early years!

    celebrating with you guys!

  2. Kristin, Yes I was ENORMOUS! It was the most uncomfortable I've ever been in my life! 14 months apart was shocking and crazy for a bit. When Ryan would cry, so would Nathan. It was quite a circus for the first month. Though I have to realize there are others that have been closer. 🙂
