iPhone Photo Dump

I finally got around to uploading all the pictures from my are a few my favorites.

Ryan and Bosco sharing a meal (not really).

Sean's first dentist appointment, he actually did really well
 and was happier than he looks in this picture.

Ryan bumming some kettle corn at the Giants game from
the guys in front of us.

Ryan and his typical "happy" face.

A cool picture taken from the top of the John Hancock building in Chicago.

iPhones rule, especially with the Camera+ app.

Radio Flyers

My Dad's Dad, aka my "Nonno", who is Sean and Ryan's Great Grandfather (who they also call "Nonno"), bought this great radio flyer wagon for the boys a few years ago.

Sean has been riding it in walks for almost 2 years now, but Ryan is finally big and strong enough to ride it as well. In the past he has fallen in the middle of the wagon a few times going up curbs or over bumps, but now he uses his arms to stabilize himself and make sure he stays put.

The other night while Darcy was exercising, I took the boys for a walk in the wagon, and brought my camera. The sun was setting, and I was able to take advantage of some good lighting!

The lighting is not as good on this one, and it's a bummer the garbage cans are in the background, but I otherwise really like this one:

Ryan (aka Baby Ryan to Sean) is getting big. He is 15 months old now and we are loving his sense of humor. He cracks up all the time and tries to make us laugh. His favorite thing to do is to stuff toy cars wherever he can. We find them everywhere and in everything. His favorite words are dog (da) and ball (ba), but he also says up, mama, dada, yummy, and uh oh. He is cruising around but he isn't brave enough to let go and try standing. If you try to make him stand or walk, he will refuse.

He likes to explore the house and pull things out of drawers. Usually he puts everything back if you ask him. He is finally enjoying baths, which is great. He follows Sean around a lot and loves to play with all of Sean's toys.

Ryan is a master imitator, if you make a face, sound, or action he will try to do it too and he is usually successful. He absolutely loves to dance and listen to music. He even likes when Mom or Dad sings which is different than Sean (he still yells at us not to sing).

We are having a blast with this little guy who hardly ever cries. We can't wait to see all the new things he comes up with in the next few months.
