Secondly, I guess I could blame it on the fact that it just seems like the weekend gets here and it's gone before it even started. We seem to spend most of our time hanging out in our baby pool and trying to relax and veg out as much as possible, and the past weekend we really tried not to make any shopping or Target trips, as it seems that we always end up buying more than what we had on our list to begin with, and when you're buying diapers and formula for $23 a pop, it starts to add up. Not to mention all the computer problems we have been having at work trying to go chartless, I guess I just try to avoid the computer when I get home at all cost, which explains why I haven't posted lately.
Anyways, aside from my rant, I would like to say that I have fallen in love with a new TV show on Lifetime called Drop Dead Diva. It's my new favorite show while Desperate Housewives and Grey's Anatomy are on hiatus. I had taped the past few episodes on DVR and just had a chance to catch up watching them, so I am very excited to have a "new show" to watch. Now that Ryder is very active trying to pull himself up on everything in sight, Scot and I are lucky if we get an hr of tv in at night, as we spend most of our time saying "No! Danger!!" as he grabs things that he shouldn't grab, or stands up and somehow makes his way over to where we are sitting on the couch, demanding to be picked up, and then in the next minute, squirms to be put back down. Anyways, I promise I will post some pictures this week! Hope that you all are having a good week so far!

While getting Ryder dressed for daycare this morning, I decided to put on his Gelinas Creation tshirt that was given to him by a family friend in New Hampshire. It reads: Gelinas Creation
Made in Heaven
Care Instructions: Handle gently. Wash regularly, warm water. Towel dry. For best results, shower with love. Apply hugs and kisses as needed. With proper care, this wonderful child will give you a lifetime of love and enjoyment.

Not only has he figured out how to stand by himself, but Tucker has been busy teaching Ryder all the tricks to the trade at washing dishes! Look how sweet they are...Mama's helpers!
Saturday, we grilled steaks, asparagus, and Mimi's grilled corn on the cob. We spent most of the afternoon in our baby pool, and I was very impressed at what a little fish Ryder has become! He loved being in his baby float so that he could be in control of where he went. So far, the baby pool has been the best $13 investment we ever made-ha!

We finally made it to our destination and were exhausted by the time we climbed the steps to our family beach house! After unpacking, we visited with my Grannie and then headed to bed to rest up for the days ahead. We decided to hit the beach early, since it was so crowded, and we knew that the sun would get stronger as the day passed. Ryder was very calm and interested in what was going on around him, checking out the waves that were crashing behind him, and looking at his surroundings.
I decided to let him have a try at what the wet sand felt like between his toes, and hoping to crush any fears of sand that he may develop, since Scot is such a big baby when it comes to any interaction with the stuff. (And to think he surfs!?) I was very proud of Scot

Well it was an emotional day this week, as Ryder outgrew his baby carrier carseat and Scot had to put it away in the attic. When I was pregnant, I had staked out the color and style of the Graco stroller/carseat and I remember the day it arrived on our doorstep. I was so anxious to put it together and I had imagined what our little bundle would look like, buckled up in it. Fast forward 7 months, and now we are the proud new owners of his very grown up Britax carseat. He will be riding in style for the next 45 pounds or so in this beauty-ha!
This just goes to show how fast babies really do growup! Well, we are all packed up and ready to attempt a roadtrip to Holden Beach for the weekend. I am so excited because I think Ryder is at the age now where he will really enjoy the water and sand and there will be a lot of good photos to come! I think my brother and sister-in-law will even join us to celebrate the 4th of July together. Scot is going to drop me off at work and then we are going to be on our way! I hope that you all have a blessed Holiday weekend, and I am looking forward to catching some sun and Scot is looking forward to catching some surf. HAPPY 4TH of JULY!!!
