Hanging out with Nana

Nana came to visit for the weekend, so I could help Jeff and Janie at market. I know my mom really loves spending time with Ryland, and I think he enjoys every moment. It is cool to see them together. She spoils him rotten.

Little Jewelry Helper

Jeff and Janie were back in town for the show at Dallas Market Hall. This is the first show that I helped with since Ryland has been born, and it was a little tricky at set up. I brought his play mat and some toys for him to play with. He did pretty darn great for a few hours. I put out necklaces, bracelets, and rings while Ryland just hung out. He eventually took a little nap after flirting with all the chicks.

Fun with the new camera

We love the new camera! It is a ton of fun to snap shots of him in deep thought and right before he loses his cool.

Meeting some more family

Ryland met his great grandmother Bobby, great grandpa Boots, several uncles, aunts, and cousins this weekend. We had a great visit with family, and they all were able to love on Ry Ry.

Ryland plays supermodel

Ryland had some photos taken today, and he really "worked it". We had a ton of fun posing him and trying to make him smile. Once we got him going, he started acting like a model. The pictures turned out cute, and they made great father's day gifts. We can't wait to go again!

Mommy gets a new ride

I picked up my new mommy ride today, and I am so excited. I have to admit I had a little moment when I was turning in my old keys. I guess it just hit me that now I am more concerned with cargo space rather than speed. It is super cool to load everything in and go, and I am looking forward to driving it out of town this weekend.

Best Saturday ever!

We spent the afternoon in the pool. The boys looked too cool in their shades.
That evening we went to the Blues Festival in the village. Ryland loved the music, and he was very chill. Maybe he will be a musician?

The boys jammed out. They danced all evening.

Bumbo and tummy surfboard

Ryland had some "sitting" time in his Bumbo today. He likes to chill and watch me work at the desk. I think he looks so funny in the chair, because it seems like his neck disappears. Too cute!

Ryland finally locked his eyes on the animals in the water pouch on the tummy surfboard. He watched the yellow fish for a while today, and he just giggled and squealed!

Mommy needs a SUV

After a crazy weekend of hauling and delivering flowers, I realized that I need a SUV. BAD!
I am so over trying to cram everything in the trunk of my car. I absolutely love my car and feel that I will be a total mom if I trade it in. I guess it is about time to suck it up and get a momma mobile. Don't worry, I didn't say a mini van.

Rollie Ryland

Ryland had another first today. He was having tummy time when he pushed up and rolled over to his back. I immediately started cheering - then started crying with joy. We will have to keep a close eye on him to make sure he doesn't get hurt. He is a little Rollie pollie!

To the gym we go

Today was my first day back at the gym, and Ryland went for the first time. Our gym has an awesome child center that will take infants at 12 weeks. I toured the facility and talked to the director about all the details, and I feel really comfortable leaving him while I workout. I just have to make an appointment with the infant room 48 hours in advance. I thought that making an appointment would be a pain, but maybe it will make ME go workout.

As for the pain I am feeling this evening, ouch!
