FC: Ryder's First Year
1: "A precious baby has come from above to live in your hearts and fill them with love."
2: "Twinkle twinkle little star; do you know how loved you are?" | Ryder Matthew Broadbent | 5 pounds 8 ounces 19 inches long | Intermountain Medical Center Murray, Utah
3: January 19, 2010 - The Day I Was Born | Intermountain Medical Center Murray, Utak | Time of birth 1:58 p.m. | Delivery doctor Flint Porter
4: "A Baby's Love Is Best Of All" | Here I am in the arms of those who love me so much! I am a miracle baby because when I was born the umbilical cord was wrapped around my neck five times. The doctor had never seen such a long cord in his entire career, it was over one yard long. Dr. Porter felt I needed to be delivered six days earlier than the original scheduled induction date because of various reasons. What a blessing it was that he made that decision. I'm finally here! I'm anxious to go home and meet my big brothers and sisters. January 20-21, 2010
5: "Babies Are Life's Most Precious Gift"
7: At just three weeks of age I was hospitalized for RSV. It was very serious since I was so tiny. After 2 days I spiked an extremely high temperature which alerted doctors and a series of more tests began. It was discovered that I had a urinary tract infection and a condition called kidney reflux. A PICC line was inserted in my arm and I was given medication every 6 hours for 21 days. This was the only way I was able to go home from the hospital. For the next 10 months I had a daily dose of antibiotics until my kidney reflux was gone. February 2010
8: Here are pictures of me throughout the year. My mom took pictures each month so my family could watch how I grew and changed within my first year of life. I'm still a little small, but am growing each and every day!
9: April 2010 3 months old
10: "It's The Little Things In Life That Matter Most"
11: I was blessed on May 1, 2010, and Talon was baptized the same day. This was such a special day for me and my family.
12: Most days are filled with a lot of laughs and smiles as we play, learn, and grow together. However, there have been times where I have been ridden like a pony, stepped on, and even given foods I couldn't eat yet by my big brother. We will definitely keep our parents on their toes for the next several years!
13: My big brother Dalton and I are best friends!
14: A Baby Is A Bit Of Stardust Blown From Heaven

21: I LOVE my grandma's and grandpa's...they are the best in the world! | This picture with Grandpa Broadbent was taken Christmas day, 2010. I will really miss my Grandpa Wallin who passed away Dec. 8, 2010 at age 90.
22: I love life and am developing my own little personality. I'm usually easy going and happy, but I can let others know when I'm really upset. I like to be right in the middle of what's happening and love it when I'm held, hugged, and cuddled the very best!
24: Christmas Eve at Grandma Wallin's house included a traditional dinner with Christmas chicken, singing, the Christmas story read from the Bible, and opening gifts from Grandma. What a fun evening, especially discovering the ornaments on the tree and exploring the fireplace with Dalton!
25: Christmas morning was a thrill for me, mainly because I had unlimited wrapping paper and bows to play with. I got some fun new toys, books, a learning center toy with music and some animal crackers in my stocking. I love you Santa! | Christmas morning was a thrill for me as I had endless wrapping paper to crinkle and bows to play with!
