My little Gardener

I went out to garden the other day with Ryan. After Ryan saw what I was doing he insisted on take the shovel from me and trying it himself.

I have another video that is much better of Ryan but I just can't stand my voice in it. Do you ever annoy yourself? Anyway, it's Ryan we all care about!

Super Easy Baby Cookies

Don't these look fun! My mom says the green ones look like creepy crawlers. In any event, Ryan likes them and they are healthy!
So I experimented a little to find a good "teething" cookie/cracker. And I found a simple one that is fun too.

*1/2 cup rice flour (I use rice flour b/c it doesn't have gluten.)
*1/2 cup rice cereal (I haven't tried it with home made rice cereal.)
*1/2-3/4 cup puree fruit or veggie
*1 1/2 T. olive oil

Preheat oven to 425. Mix flour, cereal and oil and then add in your fruit/veggie. Now you have two options. Either roll out the dough and cut into shapes like you would cookie dough or you can use a pastry bag and make fun shapes that way. I did both and will both again.
Bake for 10-12 minutes.

*Here I have featured yams (the orange ones), green beans (the green ones) and pears (the white ones). I plan to try bananas, and carrots soon. Hope ya'll enjoy! I know Ryan certainly has.

P.S. Let me know if you try this out and how it goes.

The Aquarium

Today we went to see the penguins at The Living Planet Aquarium with Mike's mom, Pamela, David and Constance (brother and sister-in-law) and Constance's mom, JoAnn. We had a great time, aside from two tired babies and the crowds. Featured above are a few pictures from the day. There were too many cute pictures to choose from so I chose them all! My favorites were the penguins, of course but I also LOVED the tropical and jelly fish. Hope ya'll can make it there sometime.

10 Month Update

The classic month birthday shot.
Okay, I've had enough of this. *Notice Mike trying to get him to hold still...Yeah..Right!

And he's off to explore. Who has time for pictures!?

Here are some other random pictures from this past week. Ryan and I went up to Bountiful to visit my parents. Edpa and Ryan playing some game together.
Daddy and his boy.
Uncle Boy (Jason) came over on Sunday. I've been wanting to do some freezer meals, especially as I'll be gone for over 3 weeks and fear Mike will eat nothing but fish sticks. Boy and I made like 15 meals in 4 hours plus two batches of Zucchini Muffins and Coconut-Almond power bars. Everything turned out excellent. Nevertheless, I was beat when I was finished. Thank heavens for Mike watching Ryan.
And here's a snap shot of Mike and me! Aren't we cute?
Ryan swinging. He loves this part of the day!
And Ryan eating a card. Yummy.

Fun with Daddy

We got some new blocks which Ryan and Mike like playing it. It is especially funny to Ryan if you put the block on his head.

Ryan and daddy also enjoy playing with the stacking cups. Ryan just can't stand it if anything is stacked and must promptly knock it down.
Finally, Ryan loves being picked up and swung. Too bad you can't see his big grin in this picture.

Walking...Well Almost

Ryan is learning to walk with the help of a chair. He did this last night for about 10 minutes straight. We made a little "track" for him around our living room. Notice the rug rolled up. Ignore the messy house-- at the end of the day it always looks like a tornado has been through. We call the tornado RyRy.

Enjoy the video!

Kick the Can

My dad was over yesterday. He kicked an old cup laying on the ground and Ryan burst into laughs. Here's the result. He laughed for like 10 minutes. Thanks Edpa!

Here are some other random pictures. Yes that is a stick in Ry's hands and Yes, it will go in his mouth later. I think it's better than the alternative though--DIRT and LEAVES!
A self picture of me and Ryan.
A craft that I made. I am starting to do some SIMPLE crafts. For those that know me... know that I really don't craft but I guess it's never too late to start. This is on Ryan's wall and it's made out of cardboard cute paper and Mod Podge.

Enjoy a cute laughing boy.

9 Months Old!

Wow, I can't believe it's already been 9 months. Well, Ryan is standing on his own a lot more and still crawling everywhere! He really enjoys now taking all of my socks out of my drawer.
He now opens drawers and cabinets and LOVES to take everything out of them.
Isn't he so dang cute! I just love his new P.J.'s. His little feet have monster's on them.
He's getting so big, especially next to his Tiger.
