Happy Halloween!

Here are some pictures of our little Ry Guy!

Cousin Alex had a band concert and we went. Ryan enjoyed it until the last number which got a little loud and then he burst into tears and we went home.

Here he is hanging out with Mommy on the floor.

Finally, here is a preview of Christmas! Ryan is Santa Clause for Halloween! Isn't he cute?

5 Months Old!

Wow, I can't believe how quick it has gone! We love our little Ry Guy so much! Here are some happy pictures of him from this past month.
Of course we have to have the shot with him and his Tiger. But in the next one he is actually bending his legs! This is unusual for our little stiff guy.

Here he is getting a toy, except that the camera distracted him.

Ry and his cousin Jade in the background. It's so great that we get to hang out with them.

I like his big dark eyes in his picture.

Last, here is a video clip of Ryan eating his toes. This is a new favorite thing. He has also learned to now roll from his back to his front and he is getting closer every day to crawling! So far he just sticks his bum way up in the air and face plants it, but we cheer him on and he keeps trying.

It seems that any ill we have now a days has a pill that we can take to cure it.

I went to the doctor's yesterday for a routine check up, while talking it came out that I am tired (nothing to do with a new baby being around) and I asked to have my iron checked. By the end of the conversation my doctor is trying to convince me that I have postpartum depression and that some anti-depressants will really help. (Apparently, he had just come from a conference that said 30% of all women have postpartum depression and even though I don't fit the "classic" case, I could probably get more energy by taking the drugs.)

So I asked my doctor if there was anything else I could do! He had a few suggestions but came back to the drugs. Just for everyone's information there is A LOT you can do besides drugs. For more information on the Depression Recovery Conference coming to SLC, this November 7 and 8, contact

Anyway, slightly on the same note, check out the Parental Consent Act of 2009.

I Support It!
You should too, for your children's safety.

Recent Family Pictures

So while Mike's dad was in town a few weeks ago we took advantage and got some more family pics. He also came and took pics of my whole family. Here is me with my parents.

And, here is the whole Fila family. 9 grandkids makes it hard to get a good one of everyone, but don't the kids look cute?!

More of Ry.

More family.

Ry likes to pull the blanket over his face. Silly boy.
