Smiles from Ryne

Ryne is now 8 1/2 weeks old and getting happier by the day. We think he is really starting to adjust to life. He smiles a lot and yesterday morning he was laughing at me. He is working on figuring out how his voice works and that is pretty cute. He tries to grab the toy on his bouncy seat and likes to watch it move all around. All in all, I'm giving this past week a thumbs up!! Both of our boys were pretty good. And I got to get out and go grocery shopping without the boys one afternoon and finally got to go get my hair done (it had been since before Christmas that I last had it done...color was needed!). Kyle was great to keep the boys and let me do that. Plus he has also been keeping them in the mornings while I take a little time and go to the gym. So, I'm feeling better and my hair looks better and Ryne is happier...that certainly makes for a good week.
Oh, and let me mention a super fabulous surprise that I had this week.....
Kyle told me the plans he made for our 5th anniversary. We are going to Canada to go snow skiing!!!!!! Heading out to Whistler, one of the greatest places to ski in the world, I'm told. Now, you might be asking the same thing I was: How are we going to ski with a 2 year old and a 2 month old? Kyle has secured us a traveling nanny!!! Our neighbor Stephanie is going with us to take care of the boys. I can't even tell you how excited I am....Kyle got me a super deal on some skis today. Craig's list is great. I now own my very own pair of skis. WOW! Hope I remember how to use them.
What is has been going on in our world? Kade continues to amaze us. He knows his letters and likes to "play letters" as he calls it, using the magnetic letters on the fridge. He can spell Ryne's name because he has practiced looking at the letters on the wall int he nursery. His favorite word this week is "probably". We daily hear things such as "I probably need a snack", "I probably need some more milk", "I probably need to go downstairs", "I probably need to play train", "I probably need to watch a movie", "I probably need my ball". Basically, if it is a phrase that "probably" can be used in front of, Kade proabably says it.
Today, Kade was such a big boy. He went to the Aquarium in Seattle with our neighbors Justine and Stephanie. They said he had a really big time...hope to get some pics from that trip to show.
So here are some of Ryne's smiles for you:

This is an after bath photo so you can see how big this boy is getting...look at that double chin he's getting!
