HAPPY BIRTHDAY RYLEY!







My daughter is 2 years old today! I remember the day she was born like it was yesterday. It was just such a sweet day and I am crying just thinking about it. She was 3 days late, so I got induced. I remember being very scared because it was my first and I had no idea what to expect. Everything went very smooth and I thought she looked like a little angel when she came out. That day my mother in law gave me a dozen pink roses and I had them dried and in Ryley's room until a couple of weeks ago. Ryley decided she wanted to pull all the leaves and petals off. What a mess! But I was more sad that they were gone because of their sentimental value. I wonder if I have a picture of them somewhere. I'm sure I do. I will have to post it.


Here is the day we came home from the hospital. I can't believe how small she looks and how tired we both look.

















Ryley hasn't had a very good day so far. She has had a little diarrhea and got stung by a bee at the park. We went to the park with a bunch of her friends for a joint party with her friend Ana. It was so cute. I brought rainbow chip cupcakes. Those were my childhood favorite and still are.
Tomorrow we are having some family over and having an Elmo cake. It should be fun and hopefully she will be feeling a little better. Happy birthday baby! I love you!!!
While I was looking at Ryley's baby pictures I found this one of my hottie husband! Nice huh?

Happy Birthday, Ryley!

And congrats to you for celebrating her 2nd birthday, too! I must admit, I appreciate my mom a lot more now that I've birthed my own daughter and feel she should share in the birthday celebration, too, since she did all the work. :) So this is a big day for you, too!

And that is a VERY nice picture of the hubby... ;) Do you take it as a compliment when someone compliments your hubby? I do.

P.S. To answer your question, my daughter is 7 1/2 months old and mastering pulling up. Several friends have a pool going about when she'll walk, and none have her pegged for later than 10 months. I keep telling her to slow down. I'd like her to be a baby for a little longer.

I can't believe she is 2 already! I remember being like, "Are you having contractions yet? Are you having contractions yet?" because she was taking her own sweet time. I swear it seems like it was just yesterday!

Thanks for the comment Andrea. I'm sure my husband will be very pleased to hear that he definitely looks "smokin" in that picture. When I told him I posted that picture he said that it is deceiving because he is jumping in the air and everything is being stretched out. I do that sometimes and think how great it would be if I was only like 3 inches taller in my torso.
