5 months old!

Today my little cheeseball Ryken is 5 months old. I still can't believe how much time flys sometimes. He is just getting cuter and funner everyday. Well except for the fact that I think he is teething and that is NO fun at all. But I guess its what we have to do right? I just wish Justin was around more in the evenings to help. But that's a whole different story. :) Got to love being married to a Police Officer. Any who! Funny thing is that today Ryken actually rolled over from his back to his belly for the first time. Last month he rolled from his belly to his back a few times when doing tummy time. But today I was wrapping Christmas presents and turned around and there he was on his tummy. It sure was a surprise to me. I couldn't believe it. And of course I had to take a few pics of him today also since it is his little monthly birthday. I always look forward to the 24th of every month just to know that he is that much older. :) And of course I just LOVE being his mom.

Our CUTE little man.

My sister-in-law (Justin's Sister) was in town from Cali with her little guy. So we decided to go to the Chandler Mall on Monday while she was still here. And since Justin was working some overtime from 6 in the morning till 6 at night I figured it would be nice to get out of the house and hang out with her and Tristan and Ryken. Thats whatwe did. We had a pretty good time. We checked out a few stores for ourselves and also of course a few for the our little guys. We found some pretty good stuff for the boys. We went to The Children's Place and I found these adorable hats for Ryken. We needed to find a beenie type one that covered his ears for when it gets colder and for when we go to visit my parents. So I got him one and I couldn't help myself and got him another cute hat that was just adorable on him. And Jessica had bought 2 pair of sunglasses for Tristan the day before and she had both of them so we HAD to take a picture of them wearing the shades. We laughed so hard at them. And of course they had no idea why we were laughing so hard. I wish that I was able to find a few more things for Christmas too since that is right around the corner but of course I didn't. Oh but Jessica and I both got this really cute bag that we were both going to use as a diaper bag. Well I told her that I didn't think Justin would go for it since it really wasn't ment to be a diaper bag. I got it anyways. And sure enough when he saw it thats exactly what he said. He is such an organizer that he doesn't think that the bag will work cause there are not enough places to put everything. Don't get me wrong I love him but sometimes he can be a pain in the neck! I mean he doesn't really carry the bag much anyways so what does he care. Plus we needed a bigger one because now that we have a few toys for Ryken to take there isn't room in the bag we have now. Needless to say I may be taking it back. :( We will see. Any who I just had to post the pics of my adorable little boy, ( and one of his cute cousin too). Enjoy!

Do you think he likes it? I'm not to sure. :)

One COOL baby!

Two of the cutest boys I know.

Rice Cereal.

We got the okay from Ryken's doctor to give him rice cereal now. But we had been putting it off. We had given it to him in his bottle but we decided to give it to him in a spoon on Monday. Needless to say it was quite the show. Justin and I could not help but laugh at him. Ryken did not want anything to do with it. He did not like the taste at all. All I could say is that it sure didn't smell that good either. But daddy decided to taste it himself. He said it wasn't good either. We tried to give him just a few more bites to see if any would actually stay in his mouth. He would open his mouth so I could feed it to him but once it was in his mouth, he just kept it open and made funny faces and then would let it fall out of his mouth. :) We were having such a fun time with it. But the mess afterwards was not much fun. So we are going to maybe try again in a week or so and see how that goes. But of course we couldn't feed it to him for the first time and not have pictures to show. So here are a few. :)

First bite is not so swell.

Big bite for Mama.

Okay ma, I think I'm done.

Well it has come and gone! Ryken's 1st halloween. I know I know. He is to little to go trick or treating. Which is why we didn't take him. :) But today mommy is wishing that we would have to satisfy her sweet tooth. :) We took Ryken out to our friends Gina and Kamerons Trunk or Treat that their ward was having. It was lots of fun to get to see them and also to see all the cute kids in the costumes. But especially our Chunky Monkey and their Little Bumble Bee. Such cute kids we have. We also were invited to a Halloween party that was being hosted by Justin's Sarg from work. So a couple days before the actually Halloween we all dressed up for the party. If you can't tell I am Dr. Buchberger and Justin is Steve Irwin. (Crocodile Hunter) and our little guy was a cute little monkey. Don't laugh to hard at the wig. :) I am already looking forward to next year when maybe we can actually score some candy for our house. Even though he may not eat all of it. Hey like I said mama has a sweet tooth. Well any who. enjoy the pics.
