6 Months

     Our little Reesey Cup just turned six months old! She is the perfect touch of sweetness that this Purdy household needed. She is a happy little baby, smiling all the time, and only crying when really upset. She laughs at her brother all the time. Even when Mommy and Daddy think that he may have been too rough or too loud, she still will laugh. She is a bit of a Daddy's girl already, brothers built in play buddy, and Momma's little cuddle-bug.
     She is talking, grunting, and laughing at us, or with us. Reesey is a healthy little girl, but somehow still manages to get that chunky little body a-rollin'. We call her our little "Roley Poley." If there is a toy she wants (being hers or her brother's) she will find a way to get to it. She is so mobile that we don't leave the room for long, because there is no telling where she will be when you get back. Unlike Rylan, Reese loves all foods we give her, but by looking at her physique, we shouldn't have been surprised that she would like food so much. She is eating most meals, and opening up her mouth and shoving the spoon in when we let her.
     It is hard to believe that our sweet little girl is half-way to a year. I am holding onto each moment, savoring each time she falls asleep on my shoulder, and holding her a little longer (even when my arms already hurt). Reesey is our girl, our little "Baby Girl, Sweet Girl, Chunky Monkey" (as Rylan calls her all these things). And now a few pictures of our happy, carefree, precious Reesey Cup!

When I take a shower I put Reese in my room with her mat and toys. On this particular day I got out to find her just like this, as happy as can be!

Happy 3rd Birthday Rylan

          This past Saturday we celebrated our baby boy's (so it still seems to me) 3rd birthday. It seems like yesterday that he was so little and depended on us so much. Looking at Reese now, it is hard to remember Rylan being that small. Where has the time gone? It has passed by all to quickly. My baby boy is now a tumbling, talking, laughing, running, hard headed, handsome, smart, healthy little boy. In a blink of an eye our son is now 3, WOW!
     We were lucky enough that our party that was planned for outside got to happen that day. We had two full days of rain before Saturday, so I figured that we would be moving the party inside. But, God said "No Momma, these kids will play outside." Thank goodness for sunshine. We had family, friends, sunshine, cupcakes, and my sweet boy to celebrate. The day was perfect. We had the party early, so we had the rest of the day to just relax and enjoy our little man.
     I have had a few break downs throughout the week, just knowing that my baby is growing up so fast, but through it all, I also get to see the young man that he is becoming. With God on our side we will get our sweet baby boy raised!
     Rylan, you are everything I wanted in a son and more. You constantly keep me on my toes, laughing, crying, and every emotion in between. I wouldn't trade this world with anyone. Spending everyday with you and your sister is my greatest accomplishment. I love to sit and watch you be ALL BOY! You are wild with passion, independence and love. Your love of cars, trucks, puzzles, books, painting, Lego's, stickers, Buzz, Woody, Lighting McQueen, Mater, dirt, running around naked, chasing Duncan and Winston, pretending to be "Puss-N- Boots," getting up at 6:00 am, talking in you own lil Rylan language, singing to us, wanting to wear your pj's all day, playing any and all sports that include balls, mowing with Daddy, cooking with Mommy, being sweet with sister (or as you call her "Baby Girl"); these are all things that make you, YOU! Rylan Charles WE LOVE YOU!
