Thank You Grammy!

Grammy, thank you for the lovely Easter dress, everyone thought that I was just the bell of the ball. Daddy is a little too far away in this picture to see the real cuteness so I'll have him take a closer picture.

That's a little better but I still think you need to get closer...

Whoa Daddy! I think that's a little too close.

Ryan and Twinkle BFF

I introduced Ryan and Twinkle yestarday and it was love at first sight. If Ryan is crying about anything but being hungry I can just call Twinkle on over to sing and snuggle her she calms right down. Ryan returns the favor by trying to eat Twinkle, I don't know if it is a fair trade but I guess it works for them.

Time Out!

I just wanted to take time out of my day to wish my mother a very happy birthday. So Happy Birthday Mom! (shes the one in the red) Thanks for teaching me how to be a strong woman and how to love unconditionally. I appreciate the way you raised me to be independent and the love you give to me and my little family. You are an amazing woman. I mean you even give your little dogs birthday parties.

Better UConn than Duke

It is no secret that UConn is my number one least favorite college basketball team of all time. This is a disdain that started back in 1999 when UConn and Duke met in the championship game. During a pregame interview UConn player Khalid El-Amin was asked how their team was ever going to defend the Bluedevils. Khalid's reply was "You should be asking how they are going to defend me!" with all the cockiness in the world. The rest of the interview I can't recall because his english was quite improper and very hard to follow. Yes UConn ended up winning that game in the final seconds by three points, which should be impresive since I truly believe that Duke team was one of the top three they have had in the 18 years I have been watching. Since that game I have noticed a trend with UConn superstars...they are all extremely cocky and don't give proper respect to other superstars in the nation...and most of them give unintelligble interview responses. I place blame on Jim Calhoun for not believing it to be important enough to teach these boys to have some respect. Okay my original point was just going to be that I hope the UConn loss will take most of the attention away from Duke's horrible showing on Thursday. Ryan fell asleep sitting next to me while watching the intense game. Here are some pics of the silly position she was sleeping in.

Love the one knee up pose

Her feet are too cute

Ryan's Baby Blessing

So Sunday was Ryan's baby blessing and we had quite the turnout. Unfortunately we forgot our camera but Tanya and Jerry had one and took some pictures of the rather massive group. I think there was about 34 people in all who came to support us. Our Bishop was rather excited since it was daylight savings and everyone forgot to set their clocks forward, so no one was in church. We filled up about a third of the seats. I cried the whole way through the prayer like a little girl (no offense to little girls), so I am sure that nobody understood a word of what I said. My hands were like icicles so I stuck them in Nicole's armpits until it was time to give the blessing. Thank's to all that were able to come, and sorry to all who missed such an enjoyable miniature family reunion. This is basically the only picture we have of Ryan in her little blessing dress, what a cutie!

Ryan's Dad is Amazing

So Ryan is a major sucker. All she wants to do is suck suck suck. This led to over feeding and consequently some vomitting. Time and time again we tried to get her to take a pacifier, but like her mom she is a gagger. Well tonight she started acting hungry just 30 min after I had fed her. While I was enjoying a bath Will was trying to calm Ryan. In despiration he tried the pacifier one last time and it worked! I'll be honest I am not the most excited that she needs one, I am nervous about weaning her from it in the future, but for now we are happy to have her stop crying.
