*he has such a grateful heart! He always thanks us for even the simplest of things, which in turn reminds us to have thankful hearts!
*He is really funny - he always makes us laugh, everyday, and it's often not because he was trying to be funny - he just has a way of saying things that crack us up
*He LOVES his siblings - he's really bonding with Jack lately, has always adored his sister, and is finding his groove as a big brother. He was recently teaching Ryan to read one of the early-reader books he's learned
*He has the most adorable run - seriously, he's got the most determined look on his face and the wackiest way of swinging his arms - let's hope he can out grow this:)
*He has come a LONG way in terms of his temper and outbursts and demonstrates a contrite heart pretty quickly when he's been corrected. Can't wait to see what God has in store for this very Willful little man:)
Earlier in the day Jeff set up his new tree stand and of course everyone had to have a turn. Here's Ryan making another one of his famous silly faces:)
I keep forgetting to post about this too. About a month ago we took down the crib. Ryan and Ella-Kathryn sleep together in her bed quite comfortably so I just couldn't see keeping the crib up, taking up so much space in their room, when he wasn't even using it anymore. But I had to take one more picture of him in it before it went up in the attic. It was really hard to take it apart, knowing that there would not be any more babies sleeping in it. I hope to keep it for our kids to use when they have children of their own, or to put up when we keep our grandkids! I shed a few tears but tried to keep a positive attitude. I know there are many great adventures ahead of us, without a little baby, and I am enjoying the kids where there at now. I just know that I am one of those women who will never be done having babies:( Other moms are able to confidently say, that's it, I know I'm finished - not me! Jeff, on the other had, can say it with gusto!
