Our Crazies

Hadley 6 years old:
Loves to read, color and draw, play with her friends and watch Disney channel shows now.
She recently started taking piano lessons. She goes to Ballet/Gymnastics each week. She's become a "little mommy" to Ryland and she loves to pick him up, put him into his car seat and change his diaper (sometimes). She's very tender-hearted.

Grayson almost 3:
Loves Batman and all super heroes, ninja turtles and playing outside.
He loves babies and loves to hold them, playing with his big sister and candy. His new favorite words and phrases are "Actually..." and "Just kidding".  He's very thoughtful and actually has pretty good manners when it comes to saying please and thank you. 

Ryland 15 months:
Won't sleep through the night anymore.  Has 9 teeth now including a molar.  Loves his papa.
Loves to play outside and on the piano.  Shakes his head no and says, "uh-uh" when he doesn't want something. He also says "Uh oh" when he drops things (mostly on purpose).  Loves his brother and sister.  Has a favorite blanky.  When you tell him it is time to go "night night" he will wave to everyone, he knows the drill! He can stand up and will take steps.  He could walk if he wanted to.  Still wears the bar and shoes at night but the Dr says he looks great and will hopefully be done at 2 year instead of 3!! 

Ryland 12 months

This little dude turned 1!  

Mommy was a slacker and didn't make a cake but daddy pulled through with his tradition of bringing home cupcakes on our kid's birthdays.  We had a little family party and took him to dinner and then to ride the carousel but the carousel was gone.  We left with 3 crying kids!  We came home ate cupcakes and gave him his presents!  

Ryland 12 months:
weight: 20 lbs 29%
height: 30.25inches  67%

He has the funniest little personality! 
He is so lovey.  When I pick him up he lays his head on my shoulder.  It melts my heart every time!
He loves to give kisses.
He has his 3 bottom teeth. 
 He sleeps all night.
He loves his mamma and cries when left with other people.
Loves to be outside.

 11 months!  

No way that this little babe turns 1 next month!  I can't believe it! 

He is so fun and his little personality is really starting to come out more and more!  He is pretty goofy and we love it. 

This month he:

-got his first hair cut.  He did great and just sat there and didn't make a peep.

-starting climbing on everything

-is getting good with the stairs and turning around to go down

-loves when Hadley holds him and he arches back in her arms so she will spin him

-loves kids, loves watching them and following them around

-says "dadda" and gets so excited when Brandon comes home

-we finally broke down and made him cry it out at nights.  He did great!  It took 3 nights and the first night he cried for like 20 min.  The 2nd night was longer but he did great and then the 3rd was for 10 min.  He hasn't woke up in the middle of the night since!  And he still loves us!

-he loves eating what everyone else is eating.  

-still naps twice a day

Day 3:

After breakfast we drove up to the northern part of the Island to see the Nakaele Blowhole.  
It was pretty amazing.   

We ate lunch and walked around Whaler's Village and planned on spending the day at the beach there.  But the wind was so bad that it would hurt when it hit you so we decided to leave and go shop and walk around Lahaina.  


Day 4:
This pretty much sums up day 4!  We love big beach!  

There was a family there by us and the older man with them was taken away on a stretcher and neck brace.  We didn't see what happened but we think a wave knocked him down.  He couldn't move his feet and it was so sad to watch.
