Easter 2010

Yes I had a baby! I am not still 38 weeks pregnant. Ryan Matthew born July 24th, 2009. I do realize that was 8 months ago. My blog just isn't on the top of my list anymore. Being a wife, mom, and teacher keeps me very busy. After I get home from work all my time is focused with my two favorite boys! Here is one of my favorite pics of Ryan as a newborn. And to bring you to now. Here we are at Easter this year. We had just finished a great meal at Pereni's with my mom. Dad had to work:(

Well maybe I will get better at the blog thing. I had attempted several times in the past to update but blogger never works for me. I'll try doing a better job. I realize just a picture or two is all that is needed. Happy Spring!

Ryan's Room

Here are some pictures of Ryan's room. I absolutely love it! I don't feel like the pictures do it justice but here they are. This first shot is from the doorway. Yes there is a stuffed goose hanging on the wall. Matt shot this last Thanksgiving and it is perfect in a boy's room. My mom refers to it as 'mother' but i think we will let Ryan name it someday. Then there is a cow hide rug on the floor. Purchased in Abilene but I was told came from an Italian cow!! A shot of the wall with the window. Not a great pic due to the sun coming in. Nancy Jones, a friend and co-worker made the 4 canvases on the left with his name. And the rocker that we had recovered was given to us by my sister-in-law, Carrie. There is a cute fish frame above the rocker that I have great plans to put a baby pic of Matt, me and then Ryan. We shall see if that ever gets done!

A close up of his name. It is incredible! Thanks Nancy.
The changing table/hutch.

The wall with the closet.

A close up of the canvas that my friend Amanda made of his first pictures. I love it. Matt is not a huge fan because I think it weirds him out a little that my sonogram pictures are up for the world to see. I assure him that these will only be out while he is a baby.
And now all we need is a baby to complete the room. Very soon!!!!!

34 weeks!

Well it is Saturday morning and I am way behind on belly pics and posting so here I am in all my glory, pajamas and all! I can't believe that we have less than six weeks left. I am so excited and ready to meet our little man!

Baby Showers

I have amazing co-workers and friends. Here are some pictures from my baby showers. The first is from my school shower. I feel completely lucky and blessed to work with such an amazing staff. I can't wait for Ryan to meet everyone and someday go to school there.

My second shower was thrown by a group of friends. It was incredible! I don't even know how to say thanks to everyone who made the shower possible and all the people who came to honor Ryan!

Three ladies who are very near and dear to me! What would I do without friends like you! Wendy, Robyn, and Brooke.

My besties from Lubbock and Dallas, Amanda Wooten and Lisa Goolsby! Thank you for traveling to come share in the excitement.

We will always be Austin Raiders in my mind. Darla Lorenz, Marilyn Long and myself.The best sister ever! Thank you for everything!Melissa Brown and her sweet boys, Zane and Vander, came from Dallas. Thank you for coming and helping unload everything at my house. You are the greatest. I guess we will have to wait until next year to go chill at Hawaiian Falls!Me with Dave and Julia Galloway's sweet baby girls, Ellie and Gracelyn. Watch out Ryan!!!

My Easter Egg

Well I have finally caved in and posted some belly shots. The first is at about 20 weeks. The day we found out it was a boy!
Easter morning. 24 weeks. We are getting very excited and are eagerly waiting Ryan's arrival this July! I am working on paint color for the nursery and am hoping to have it done soon. I will definitely post pics once it is finished.
