2. She is a GOOFBALL!! She makes us laugh so hard and loves to laugh at herself.

3. She always tries to do what is right. She worries so much about doing the right thing in every situation I admire that about her.

4. She is so dang fun! She is always willing to try new things and makes it fun for everyone around her with her smile and contagious laughter!

5. She loves her family-especially all her cousins. She is great friends with them all and takes care of everybody, even the little ones.

6. She is willing to try new things and she is good at everything she tries. She works hard and doesn't give up even when she is challenged. Whether it is cheer, gymnastics, choir or soccer she puts forth her full effort and doesn't give up!

7. She's determined and works hard at school-she is a great student. All her teachers ever say about her is that she is an ideal student. (Dont parents love hearing that!)

Happy b-bay to my sweet little Ry Ry! I still remember hearing that first little cry outside the hospital room. She is everything and more you wrote about. Tell her that I love her so much. She is such a great niece.

First of all, did you really post two posts in one week?

Second, this is the sweetest thing ever! I love this list about Rylee. I can't believe how big she is getting, she is such a beautiful, big girl. I too love how fun and goofy she is! Happy Birthday Ry, We all love you!!!!!

Third, thank you Brandy for your comment. I know you know, and I love you for that! I feel like such a dork writing stuff like that, but I guess it's a little free therapy for me:) Thanks Brand!

What a sweet post. Happy Birthday, Rylee! Can't believe our girls are so old.

I'm so excited for you that you are having a BOY. You will love it! They are SO different than girls, but so much fun. They are just little balls of energy. You'll never be bored. :)

I hope that you are feeling well and that your pregnancy is not too rough.

Hey, I just wanted to let you know that I am going "private" on my blog so I need your e-mail address {Angie's and Mindy's too if you have them} so you can keep reading. Just leave me a comment on my blog...

Take care.

Isn't it such a strange feeling to have a 10 year old? Taylor hit that mark in April, and I think it has had more of an effect on me than him! To say "I have a 10 year old" seems a bit surreal! Congrats on a new baby! I am in China for a few weeks and have had a bit more time for blogging and for checking in on everyone else. That first picutre of Rylee looks just like you at that age!!! So fun to see. Hi to Tom!

Krista said...

She sounds exactly like her mom! So cute and spunky. I'm also so happy you are having a baby boy! Congrats. Little boys love their mommies. It's so much fun.
