Here are Ryan's 9 month pictures! Lareme just painted this blue backdrop for me and I wanted to try it out!! I LOVE IT!! Ryan loved these pictures because she LOVES being naked!! It's the funniest thing! A total different girl comes out when she is naked! She's a wild, crazy girl and she is silly! She will just laugh and laugh, roll over, climb on you, crawl away, and then laugh again!! Boy do I love this girl! At your 9 month appt you were 27 3/4 inches long (70%) and 15.2lbs (4%). You are just long and skinny!
June 25 -9 month Pictures
I think this age is by far my favorite! Although as she gets bigger I just keep saying that! I just love getting to know her and seeing this happy little girl! She is SO happy. One of my favorite things that she does is if someone else is holding her and she sees Lareme or I she will kick her legs and mover her arms with excitement! I love that I know she loves us!! and I love that I know that she knows we LOVE her!! You love to babble and talk! You now say dada, just in time for Fathers day!
The day before Father's Day Ryan decided to start throwing tantrums. She has now decided that she is a daddy's girl and wants him when she wants him. She usually screams for about 35 to 45 minutes and then will stop crying. She will have1-2 of these a day! WOW she really wants her daddy. Well this didn't bother me so much because it always occured at home so I usually would let her scream it out, let her know I love her but I wont pick her up until she stops crying, well needless to say she decided to throw one of these tantrums at church. Oh no! It was horrible. We went to another ward to hear Lareme speak and she saw him in the stands and decided that she wanted him then. It was the worst and I was so embarrassed! She screamed for a full 40 minutes! She was screamng so loudly that people were coming out the their classes to make sure she was okay! I didn't know what to do! I walked outside, I tried distracting her, and tried holding her, I tried singing to her..NOTHING worked! Well eventually I think she wore herself out and she stopped crying! Thankfully :)
June 6th, 2010 - 8 Month Pictures
Okay here is my little one at 8 months! At this stage of your life you just started to crawl! It was amazing all of a sudden you started scoot one day and two days later you were all over the place...literally all over the place! Then the next thing I know you are pulling yourself up! Now when I come get you in the morning you are now sitting up waiting for me.
8 month pictures - 6/14You love to play peek a boo! You love to put anything in your mouth now!! You don't care if its hair, grass, food, string, or whatever! You just want it!! You sure take after your daddy! You love to talk!! You now say Moma--your first word, I might add :)--baba, bobo, nana!Your first time in pig tails. Your hair isn't quite long enough but you sure looked cute with them in!In May you started running a fever! After running a fever for several days I finally took you in! You had an ear infection and they put you on antibiotics. Well 7 days later you got a really high fever and broke out in a rash! You were covered head to toe! It didn't seem to bother you! You were so good over this 2 week span of not feeling well!
April 24th-7 month Pictures Here is my beautiful little girl! All pretty in pink! I think these two pictures sum Ryan up so well! She loves to observe people and she stares right into your eyes ever since she was a little girl! She also loved to sit up straight! Aunt Jenny also jokes about how her spine doesn't bend because her back is always so straight...She's so prim and proper! Ryan is a very good baby!! She sleeps well through the night and rarely cries! At this point in your life you love your mom! If someone else is holding you, you just cry and cry! You just want your mom! You have now discovered that you like cold food! You are now eating yogurt..which you love and I have been making you pancakes as well! This is the month that you tried chocolate for the first time! Needless to say, YOU LOVE IT!Daddy always loves to teach you new things!! This is one that he loved to watch you do! Although it was pretty cute it definately wasn't fun for Mommy to try and feed you when you would just spit it right back out by humming your lips together! You catch on to new things very quickly. Look at those two little teeth! They are so cute!
April 11th- 6 month!
Don't those dark eyes just get you! I love this picture! (it was the first picture I took with my new lens) Over the last month and a half I have struggle with trying to get Ryan to eat baby food or cereal! She just wouldn't do it! I was determined to get her to eat it! Needless to say...I lost this battle! I officially stopped trying and now my little turkey eat refried beans, cheese, tortillas, rice crackers, etc. I can pretty much get her to eat anything as long as I mix cheese in it! She likes mostly dry food! I have had a hard time getting her to eat fruit and vegetables until I discovered freeze dried food. Let me not forget to mention that you take after your Nana. You take a good 1 1/2 hrs to 2 hrs to eat! Yes you definately take you time!You love riding on daddy's shoulders!!! Its your favorite thing!! You like to hit his head while your up there!Look at those teeth! They popped through on March 30th!We drove up to Utah for General Conference this year! This year General Conference was held on Easter Weekend so we spent Easter in Utah with Great Grandma and Grandpa! You got an Easter basket full of goodies! I must say your favorite thing was the light up tooth brush..which you still love to play with and then the plastic grass! ahah you loved making a mess of it! Great Grandma loved your little bunny ears!! You also had your 2nd experience of being babysat by cousin Mindi!! You were sure good for her! Conference was awesome.

You did NOT like it! When I tried feeding you green beans you just cried and cried! You were not happy! I should have known better to wait to try and feed you, it was just the Dr. seemed to be concerned about your size! Me knowing that you would be small wasn't really concerned but thr Doctors response about how I should strt feeding you solids made me reconsider! By now you are sleeping a good 12 hrs each night! Thank you for letting your Mommy sleep! At your 4 month appt you were 24 1/2 inches long (60%) and 10lbs 13oz (10%)

Ryan was blessed on Decemeber 6th 2009. We were so lucky to have Great Grandma and Grandpa come to her blessing! My mom gave me my blessing dress when I was little. Unfortunately, I was born in the mid 80's and I'm sure most of you can recall the dreaded lace that covered the dresses up at the top. Well my dress was cover! So to make the dress special for Ryan's day I took off the lace and put some beading on the empire waist! It turned out pretty good....much better than all that lace :) It was special to see my little girl dressed in all white being blessed by her daddy! The most memorable thing to me that you were blessed that day with was that you would be an example to your parents. When I heard that I thought to myself that I must have a special little girl to be an example to her daddy! Ryan is sure lucky to be blessed with such a wonderful dad! I am so blessed to have Lareme as my husband! He is truly a wonderful man! I could not ask for more in a spouse or father of my child! I was sure blessed to have such a good sleeper! By this time you were already sleeping through the night! You were sleeping 8-10 hrs by now! At your 2 month appt you were 23 3/4 inches long (75%) and 9lbs 14oz (10%).
This is when Mommy started reading to you everyday. You love to read!You experienced your first snow storm! We drove up to Utah in November to go to Cousin Nick's wedding! That weekend you met a lot of family for the first time. You had your first vacation-which you did awesome on the 13 hr drive! and you had your first family vacation! You also were babysat by cousin Mindi for the first time. You were an angel! I think leaving you was much harder on me than you! You sure had a lot of first this trip!
