Video fun

I shot this video first... just a few seconds of Ryker jumping around.

Huh?  Video!  I wanna do it!!!
Yay, I wanna do it again!

Ehhh... I'm done.  (Just when Ryker wants to be cute.)

Someone has discovered Xbox... FIFA 13 to be exact. 

Too excited to look at me for long....

Ryker was so excited, he passed out.

Tummy Time

Rolling around on the floor with the giant penguin. 

 It has been so warm here that we can strip Ryker down so he can play with his feet.

Trying out some tummy time... seems to be going well....

Until it isn't.

Posing and Jumping

The many crazy pictures of Niko-chan.  Here is is saying, "Cheese."  He has been wearing his Chicago Bears had a lot lately.... including night-night time.

Woah... he's starting to look like a big kid here...  I see both Neil and myself in this photo.

 Here he is showing you how to eat candy.

I dug out the jumper to see if Ryker would like it.  He LOVES it!

Needs a bit of a boost though.... good thing I have stacks of cook books.

Crazy Driver!

Honk-honk!  Watch out!!!  He can only hold himself up for about 5 mins or so, but he likes the car.  :)

Lazy Saturday

Oh the Baby...  Niko's love for him is still strong 4+ years later.  Not sure if I should be sad or impressed that his first love has lasted longer than most marriages. 

We downloaded a new app that helps kiddos improve their letters.  So far, so good.  He is really getting good at letters.

Num....  fingers....

Ryker loves to eat the bee on his exersaucer.  

The bee is attacking back!

Sitting Pretty

 Lookie, Lookie who is Sitting Pretty!  :)   We have been working on sitting for the last few weeks.  After weeks of almost face-plants, he can sit by himself for close to a minute!



I think this is a cute photo of Ryker.  He was pretty proud of himself.

Here is a full sit!

A Full DAY at Chuck E Cheese

(Warning! Crappy cell phone picts ahead!) We were invited to TWO back-to-back birthday parties at Chuck E Cheese on Saturday.  The parties were at the same Chuck E Cheese; the first one was for Chase and his party started at 10 a.m.

 I think Niko was planning on dancing with Chuck E Cheese.....

 All three of my boys on the same ride.  This ride was pretty fun for all of them, even Ryker liked it!

 First Chuckie dances with the kids....

 Then he throws tickets up in the air.  It's kinda weird... he makes it 'rain' tickets on the kids.

 Daddy liked playing the games too. 

Niko likes the 'rides.'

 More games.  I honestly can't remember if these pictures were from the first party or the second.  It all yokes together - we were there for 4 1/2 hours!!!!

The second party was with the Browning kiddos.  I can't believe that Ellie is 5 already!  Her party started at 12:30 p.m.
 Look how happy she is!


They love each other!

Ryker loves talking to Monica!
