My Sweet Birthday Boy!!

Well today is Ryder's birthday. I can't believe how fast he is growing up. My boy is two years old! He has been such a fun little guy, I never knew how much fun one little boy could be. He has only been here for two years and yet I can't remember life without him. He is finally starting to talk, and is VERY animated. He knows what he wants and doesn't want that's for sure, and as you will see, one of those things is getting his pictures taken. We went today and for the first 45 minutes, we tried endlessly to get him to smile, or heck we would have even settled for just a glance toward the camera, screaming or not. Finally we got what we thought was the best shot. He was screaming and clinching his fists, oh man he WAS MAD! But then we took a break, and returned to get the cutest pictures of my Ryder boy. We had witnessed a miracle. Here is the product of our hard days work. (And a few of my favorite pictures of the last two years). Love you Ryder Boy!!Ryder+birthday_0001.jpg">

Oh and if you look at the last picture of Ryder above the picture of Kirby it's hard to tell which is which.
