Not a happy boy

Here are some pictures from the summer. My cousin is a photographer and loves to capture family events and especially focuses on the kids. I just received the pictures and wanted to post some of my favorites.

Happy Thanksgiving

We hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! Here is a picture of Casey with Mya and Rylan. We had two thanksgiving meals, one in Sioux Falls and one in Plankinton. It was nice to have Rylan enjoy the food too:) Our bellies were sure full but we had a great day!


We also went to the park as the weather in SD has been beautiful...

Butterfly House

My good friend Kristi came to town with her daughter Sienne who is 4 months older then Rylan. We went to the butterfly house which was the first time for both Rylan and I. The place is actually really cool. I had no idea it was going to be so hot - 80 degress with 80% humidity, what a mistake for both Rylan and I to be in sweaters! However, we had a great time. Rylan is still a little young for it as he was so determined to get in the water. I spent the entire time chasing him to make sure he didn't go for a swim. He loved the butterflies and i'm sure it will be a place we will frequent more often as he gets older. Plus it's a great place to take pictures:)

1 yr check up

About a week after Rylan turned one we took him for his 1 yr check up. Rylan weighed just over 24 lbs and was 29.75 inches long. He is 70% for weight and 50% for height. His percentages continue to stay the same. Ry received 4 shots which were miserable. He held his breath so long that we were starting to wonder if he was going to breath again, we felt so bad for him but it was quickly over and he was fine just moments later. Casey loves to make fun of the fact that Rylan is almost half my height. I'm sure it won't be long by the time he outgrows me.
