Wordless Wednesday

I thought I'd participate in Wordless Wednesday this week too.

Well, we got my mom talked into walking for her graduation. YAY! She deserves that and I'm so proud of her. We went to her dinner last week and it went well, minus the fact that they served us one-inch sandwiches and we were starving by the time it was over. Thankfully my sister's boyfriend is the nicest guy she could have ever found and he paid for all of us when we went out to eat at a Mexican restaurant afterwards. It was good, except for Ryan getting upset during the middle of dinner and me being a nervous wreck. So, a week from Saturday my mom will be walking across the stage and being handed her diploma for a bachelor's degree that she has worked so hard for. Yesterday was her last day of class, she has today and tomorrow left at her internship and then she's completely finished except the actual graduation. My grandma and aunt will be coming down to watch her graduate too. We are also going to have a party for her (she doesn't know that though). We also ordered her a necklace with my dad's thumbprint on it. We're getting it engraved with "Consented 12-29-78" because when my dad asked my mom to marry him she was 14 and he said "When you're old enough, would you consent to be my old lady?" lol...Yes, I know my dad was a total romantic. Mom is also talking about getting her Master's! I know that Dad is looking down from Heaven and is beaming with pride right now!

Also, my baby boy is 3 months old now! I really can't believe how fast time is going with him. He's wonderful and I thank God for him every single day.

I absolutely love baby sounds and smiles. They are the most precious things in the whole world! We went to my mom's house this weekend. My brother and SIL were there too. We played Pictionary on Friday night, girls against guys. My brother is a cheater lol. The boys won. Eric mowed the lawn for mom and then my brother, sister and Eric went golfing. My sister is on the golf team for high school, my brother loves golf (he played 54 holes in two days) , Eric likes golf but stinks at it in a BIG way lol. It doesn't help that he's left handed and he has to use right handed clubs. He said he made a 75 on the first hole lol. Sunday Eric, my brother, sister and I went to the storage shed that my mom has. We took about 15 minutes trying to figure out the combination to the lock, opened it looked around for about 2 minutes, shut the door, locked it and went back to mom's lol. We need to take a whole day, a trash can and go through the thing. Maybe some day. My mom has a senior dinner thing for her college tomorrow. Eric, Ryan and I will be driving up to go with the rest of the family with her. I am SOOOOO very proud of my mom. She has two weeks left in her practicum and she graduates on the 10th of May. She has went through her whole schooling against all the odds. This semester has been the hardest ever for her, but she has kept her head up and went through it like a champion. I know she wanted to quit, she almost did, but we kept encouraging her and she went through it anyways and in only a few weeks she will have her diploma. She has said she's not going to walk, we are ganging up on her to try and talk her into walking. My aunt called while we were up there, I told her mom said she wasn't going to walk, she said let her talk to her cause it might be too late to order her gown if she waits any longer. Well, later I had a message from my aunt telling me mom already has her gown. I told my mom my aunt told me and she said, "that brat" lol. Well thankfully one of the ladies she goes to school with talked her into getting her cap and gown just in case she changes her mind. I sure hope she does. She deserves to walk across that stage and receive her diploma. If she doesn't though, we are going to have her a BBQ and a surprise party. I am just so very proud of her!!!!

Well since yall asked for pictures of Ryan, who am I to deny the request? lol... He's getting big, I can't believe he's almost 3 months old already. He's a wonderful baby, I couldn't have asked for better. He is so sweet and just really laid back. Eric and I are so thankful for him and couldn't love him more. Before Ryan was born I cross stitched little I "heart" Grandma, Grandpa, Uncle, Daddy, ect.... things. Well, I kept them so that I could give them to the Grandma's and everybody after he was born. I still haven't given them to them, but my dad will not be able to get his, so we went to Hobby Lobby (I LOVE that store!) today and found a little clear box, made for a model car, but I framed the Grandpa thing and put a picture of Ryan in it so we can put it out at his grave. I think it turned out pretty good. It's not the best picture of it, but the container keeps putting off a glare. I just have to figure out what to put into the bottom of it to weigh it down so it doesn't get blown over.

I hope that today is as beautiful as they say it's going to be. This weekend was pretty chilly and very windy. We went Saturday and visited with Eric's mom and sister. I didn't enjoy myself, I wanted to stay home and just spend time with Eric and Ryan, but Eric wanted to go so we went. We haven't stayed home in Lord only knows how long for a whole weekend. We are usually going to my family's house. I love getting to see them as much as we do but since we weren't going there I just wanted to stay home. I know, sounds selfish, I don't care, but it just really doesn't matter cause we ended up going anyways lol. So, turns out my argument is null and void. I planted some flowers last Sunday in my flower garden, turns out last night it was supposed to freeze. Eric covered them with plastic, so hopefully it didn't kill them. I sure wish it would make up it's mind and stay warm already. My beautiful baby boy is getting so big. He's holding his head up really well and will three months in just a couple weeks. So sad. He's growing so fast. I guess that's what kids do though. I love him very much and am so so very proud of him. He's a wonderful baby, and I couldn't ask for more.

Ryan had his 2 month well baby check today. He didn't like the nurse and doctor messing with him. He weighs 11 lbs 6 oz now and is 22 1/2 inches. The doctor said he looks great. He also had to get some shots. He did better getting those than he did with his actual appt. I'm very proud of him, I just can't believe how fast he's growing.

I almost forgot about posting the family pictures we took, but here they are.

Ryan was 5 weeks when these were taken. He's two months now. He has his two month check up tomorrow. I'm curious to find out how much he's weighing now. He's smiling a lot now and starting to talk. He's so precious.
