5 months

Alright it's been a little while since I have posted anything. Oops! But Ryker has gotten so big and made some huge accomplishments. 
Sometime after he learned to roll over he finally got the hang of rolling back on to his back from his belly. Now is is everywhere. We can put him on the floor and then 2 min later he'll be all the way across the room. 
His first tooth broke through on Dec. 28, 2012. (This was also the day we moved into our new apartment that we love!) He is currently working on the other lower central incisor. He right one was first and the second one is starting to poke through. 
He still would rather stand than sit, although he is getting pretty good at sitting on his own. Still falls over pretty easy, but is getting much better.
He now eats rice cereal, and loves it. He eats every night and I try to give it to him in the mornings too. 
And... Here is a HUGE thing..... this morning I was in the bedroom and Cam was in the living room with him and I heard Cam say, "Oh my gosh Ryker!" So I came out to see and he was trying to crawl. He would get up on his knees and try. I can't even believe it. He is only 5 months and 10 days old. What the heck child. I swear by next week he is going to be able to start crawling around. What am I going to do with this kid?! Ha It makes me so proud though. 

So big
He makes this face quite often. i LOVE it

Beautiful kid. Nuff said.

Sitting up like a big boy

Being messy. Blame Daddy.

4 months..!

Well I got 19 days out of November. I'd say that's pretty good for my track record of blogging. ha We went to price this year for Thanksgiving. It was a lot of fun. It was actually the first time that I got to go to thanksgiving for the past 2 years. It was Cam's first for like 8 years. Ever since he was 15 years old he has worked on Thanksgiving at the hotel. Thank heavens that we got to have a Thanksgiving together for our 1st one together. We had a good time too! 

Also, this guy turned 4 months old the other day.. Can you believe that. It seems as though it has flown by!

When we went to the doctor he weighed 15.5 ounces and was 27 in long.. (that's 97 percentile in height people). 
Some milestones..
He can now rollover!! YAY! From his back to his belly. Then he gets stuck and can't figure out how to get back. :( he gets really mad. he is a little mover though, he like uses his head and neck to caterpillar around. It looks like it would hurt.
He smiles at EVERYONE. Seriously he is the happiest baby ever. We love it. 
He thinks that he can stand. ha what 4 month old baby stands up all the time.. (he started doing this a little bit ago actually) when you pull his fingers to sit him up he just stands up. I think he is the strongest wiggly baby too. We love him so much.
We believe he is trying to cut his first tooth.. Drools like a maniac and is constantly chewing on his hand or whatever he can get his hands on. 
He has found his hands for the most part and is reaching for things and grabbing at things. We love watching him grow and learn. 
He has the cutest bum ever. ha I love it.
See I told you.. Happiest baby ever. 

He thinks he can stand.. and apparently he can. 4 months people.  Maybe this is normal?  I have no idea. 

Love his eyes! 

Grabbing at Daddy's beard and talking to him.. Look at those eye lashes. ha lucky boy. All the girls are going to be jealous.

Catching Up...

Day 9: I am thankful I get to go on work trips with my husband so he doesn't have to go alone.
Day 10: I am thankful for grandparents' homes to stay at when the weather is bad so we don't have to keep driving in it.
Day 11: Today I am thankful for movies. They are pretty much the reason that Cameron has a job and they are the number 1 activity that we do together. We watch soo many movies together every week. We are both movie bluffs and I love it. We = perfect for each other.
Day 12: Today I am thankful that I get to stay home and be a homemaker wife. Even though babysitting keeps me very busy and drains the energy right out of me it is worth it. I get to cook meals for my husband for when he gets home for dinner. I get to do crafts whenever I want. I get to sew whenever I want. I could go on and on and I love it.
Day 13: Today I am thankful for my mom. She has been there for me through everything in my life and is the best supporter that I have. So grateful for how understanding she is. Getting pregnant out of wedlock was one of the HARDEST things that I have ever gone through. My mom was there and helped me through it all. It made our relationship 10x stronger and better than it was before. I now talk to my mom at least a few times a day. I love her so much and I am so thankful for her example. She is a wonderful mom and I hope I am half the mom she is.
Day 14: Today I am thankful for cell phones. I have pretty much helped my mom plan Krista's whole wedding being 4 hours away. If we didn't have phones that could send pictures and what not then I wouldn't have been able to help as much as I have. I also planned my wedding the same way.. :) Thank you mother!
Day 15: Today I am thankful for vehicles that get us from point A to B. I am very sad that my family lives like 4 hours away. If it weren't for vehicles I would not be able to see them as often as I do.
Day 16: Today I am thankful for the dentist. I have absolutely loved the dentist ever since I was a little kid. I loved having braces and I think that I would love to someday have a career in teeth. I went to the dentist today and had no cavities! SOO thankful that I have amazing teeth. I have had like 2 or 3 cavities in my whole life. I thought I would have so many after not going to the dentist for a year and being pregnant.
Day 17: Today I am thankful for family that supports everything we do. My sister got married today and it was very beautiful. None of Blaize's family was able to make it and we all felt bad for him. I am so glad for ALL of the family that we have that comes and supports us in all we do!
Day 18: Thankful for lazy days. Rarely do these come around and this is the whole reason we came home last night instead of this morning so that we could have a whole day at home together as a family.
Day 19: Today I am thankful for books and seasons of tv shows. I went to Breaking Dawn part 2 last night with my FSIL and it was soo good. I think that I could actually buy this one and watch it over and over. I didn't want to have a little girl next but now I think that I do because of that movie. I love Vampire Diaries and love looking forward to it every week. Its AMAZING and only keeps getting better and better! LOVE Damon!

November 8th

Day 8: Today I am thankful that my husband has a job that he loves to provide for our family. Even though it makes me mad when he decides to take days off, I still love the fact that I get to hang out with him all day and he still gets a full 40 more hours a week. I shouldn't get mad when he wants a break because he does work a lot of long days.

November 7th

Day 7: Today I am very thankful for the church. Last night the bishop came over to our house and I actually got a calling in the young women. How crazy. This is definitely something that I need in my life. I've been trying to get back into being active again. When I was in young women's I had the best time and it's when my testimony was the strongest. The bishop even said that if Cameron can become a priest and then an Elder we could go through the temple like 6 months or so after that. I know its a very long process and it probably wont be happening as soon as I want it to. But I have so much faith and hope that it will. I feel so blessed right now. I'm so very thankful for the gospel. 
Also last night was the presidential election and as much as I feel really sick about it. At least Obama will be out in 4 years and he wont be able to be put back in. All we can do is hope for the best! I did see this on facebook though and I loved it..

November 6th

Day 6: Today I am thankful for the opportunity to babysit my niece and nephew. It's really hard at times, and not so bad at others. But it gives me to opportunity to become closer to them and to earn a bit of money for our little family! And to that I am thankful. Today has been hard and I've been soo tired. I'm thankful for my moms example of how to raise children. I hope I can be as great of a mother as she is.

November 5th

Day 5: Today I am thankful for the friends that I have in my life. I know that they will always be there for me when I really need them and that is so comforting to me! 

Miss Kaylyn Marie.. Been there for me since 7th grade. Always will be. Love her soo soo much. Happy we have become close again. 
Miss Casey Lou.. So happy I have had the opportunity to have this girl in my life.  
Miss Whitney. Understands me in a way no one else does!

Aubree has been my friends for as long as I can remember. That counts kindergarten folks!
