That Sweet Boy!!

I just love these pictures of Rykkan. He was so happy to be playing in the water as long as it was warm. Too funny! He is getting so big! He went in for his nine month check up and is 29 3/4 inches long and 23.3 pounds. He is in the 94th percentile in everything from length to weight to head size. They are all the same. That has never happened before with any of my kids. He thinks he is a big boy and climbs the stairs and stands up to furniture and walks along it. I think he just wants to go as fast as the other kids are going. He is my little sweetheart and is always happy and is such a social little guy. What a big surpise that he is a social baby with KC and I as parents. We all love him so much!

Water Fun!

Look at that Pose!

Wow I am one LUCKY Mom!!

Jump Laynie, Jump!

Say Cheese!

Best Friends

How high can you go?

Just having fun one afternoon when it was warm. Rykkan even got in on the action. Since we didn't have a slip-n-slide we used a tarp and the kids thought it was great. Then they moved onto the trampoline. I tied the hose onto one of the poles and let it shower down on them. They had so much fun. I am so glad that my kids can have fun together.

Sleepy Head

This is sweet little Alayna. This is what happens during the summer when the older kiddos don't take naps and she doesn't think that she needs one either. She gets so worn out that she will just find a place and go to sleep. She curled up on the floor while we were busy and it took me a little while to find her. She looks like a little baby sleeping in that position, not so comfortable for me but she didn't seem to mind. I thought it was so cute. Love that little girl. She is growing up to fast!

So much more!

There is so much more that I want to blog but I guess it will all have to wait. So I will have to get back to it before it ends up being eight months.


He gives the best kisses

he loves to sit in that jumperoo!

tired baby

the cutest! I was changing rykkans diaper and they started holding hands they don't have time to sit and hold hands now that they are crawling and always moving

this is a favorite. Kohnor is such a big brother and is always helpful with Rykkan

Little Mother Hen. She is a great helper too.

She has decided that she likes being a big sister.

This was on Kellsie's Birthday!! Sweet Girl!

She is my funny girl!! Cutie Pie!

So Handsome!!

These are just some random pictures this year. Most are spring pictures and you can tell with how little Rykkan is. I sure love my kids and I wouldn't trade any of them. They are so unique and are such a blessing to our family. Our sweet little Rykkan is our true happiness. It doesn't matter what is going on around here all of us will relax and laugh when we are with Rykkan. He makes us all smile. Kohnor is getting so grown up and becoming so independent. He has started mowing the lawn this summer and he really does a great job. I am sure he won't enjoy it as much next summer when it isn't a new thing but for now he really likes to do it. I have decided that Kellise is definitly ready to go to school. She has become very busy and a bit sassy! She is such a cute girl and loves to help with Rykkan. Alayna is changing so much. She is so sassy and a little independent but she still loves mommy! Loves to spend some quality time with me. Her eyes let you know exactly how she is feeling. They will either wrap you around her finger or let you know that she is Not happy with you. I have really enjoyed spending the summer with my kids and the fun things that we do together or just being together. I can't believe it is already time for school. It will be interesting with just Alayna and Rykkan home. They are so cute together and they are going to have so much fun as Rykkan gets older.

Enjoying a Snack!! Yummy!

The kids love to go to the races with Grandpa!

We decide to go to the races one day this summer. It is so fun to have it going because they haven't been doing it the last couple of years. My kids really enjoy going and they always love to spend time with Grandpa there. We invited Jeff and Krystin to go with us and we had a great time. It was so much fun. Alayna has never been. She enjoyed watching the horses as they rushed by. Rykkan just enjoyed being outside. He is such a happy little guy and enjoys just about anything. Well I guess I shouldn't say little since he is getting to be such a big boy. Kellsie and Kohnor enjoyed picking there favorite horse while they were saddling up. It was nice to get out as a family and have some fun!

Finally Updated!

So once again it has taken me a while to blog. Life has been kind of crazy and very busy so there never seems to be enough time in the day. I am not even blogging Christmas. Just feels like to long ago although we did have a great one. Everyone is growing and changing so quickly. We are loving our life and all it's craziness and can't believe that we are already into March of 2011. I can't believe Kellise will be five this month and ready to start school. Slow down time you are moving too fast!!
