Griffith Observatory

We went to the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles a few weeks back . It was cold, a little spooky and perfect for an October evening. Just the thing we needed to get us thinking about Halloween.
Here is the Hollywood sign off in the distance.

David telling me secrets. He whispers nice things to me like, "stop taking so many pictures." Just so you know his hat says, "Breadwinner" not something else.
Wonderfully cold

Ryan's 1st Birthday

We celebrated Ryan's 1st Birthday down by the beach earlier last week!
It was just a small party with immediate family, but so special for us.
When it came time to open gifts, Ryan was so polite to read all of his cards Audrey helped open gifts and even got a gift from grandma!

I just love how sweet Audrey is with Ryan. She always calls him baby Ryan and pats his cheeks so gently. Such a wonderful niece!
Ryan reading another card :) Cake time was very yummy for RyanSmashing his cake was maybe his favorite part. He now loves frosting!
Our little Family!

Everyone wore their sailor hats and looked great!

Wearing a hat for Ryan was a definite no!
Lots of love for our little guy!
After the party we took a walk by the water. We are such happy parents to have a beautiful baby that we love!

Looking forward to another year of laughs, crying, growing, walking, more teething, talking, eating, sleeping or maybe no sleeping, colds, ear aches but mostly lots of love!

We made it through the 1st year!

First ear ache, fever and molar

Ryan got his first ear ache, first fever and first molar all in the past few weeks. There is a first time for everything, and not all "firsts" are that great. After some hard days he is taking naps non-stop today, which has led me to some great free-time :)

Feeling better after his high fever went away
Checking to make sure all five fingers are still there after chewing on them.We went to Grandma's Kindergarten class and had a crazy good time counting.
Outside before sunset keeping cool.
