Happy Birthday to Ryan

I cannot believe my favorite middle guy is 3! today....where does the time go??

We spent the day at the park playing with friends. They were all good and dirty and sweaty by the time we climbed back in the car to head home.

Daddy made dinner - yummy ribs - and then after well-deserved baths, we celebrated with a Dairy Queen ice cream cake - double yummy!

Ryan is such a sweetheart - and he keeps us laughing, too. I love the way he wants to sit with me when he watches t.v. I love the way he says, "I love you, too." I love the way he argues with Evan over who gets to pray at dinnertime. I love the way he plays so hard and then sleeps just as hard. I love the way he always asks for an extra hug and "pish" before bed. I love the way he tries anything once - food and whatever Evan does first :) I love the way he laughs all the time. I love the way he gives his brothers hugs and "pishes." I love the way he runs around with the boys' hamper over his head with only his feet peeking out the bottom [yes, he did that tonight AFTER they were put to bed...ran down the hall, back into his room and dove on his bed, all inside the hamper...YEAH, had a hard time not laughing while threatening him to stay in bed with that one...] I love his independence. I just love this little boy and can't believe how much more he steals my heart each and every day!!

Amy your boys are just beautiful. (don't tell them I said that because I know boys don't like to be called beautiful, but come on...look at those faces...that is beauty if ever it was.) :)

I know what you mean about the time going so fast. It seems like my Little-O was just turning 3 and now he is five and starting kindergarten!! *sigh*
