13: Dear Ryker, Today, you took a sip of milk out of a straw for the first time.Today, you stood on your own two feet, without help. Today you ate cake, messily and happily. Today I was reminded how much you've grown. Today, you turned one! Everything from the past 365 days seemed to pass me by so quickly. You were born an 8lb 15oz newborn and you've grown into a 27lb one year old.You grew pleasantly and happily and hardly fussed at all along the way. And, often, we were caught up in the throes of daily chaos and it would seem as if we were unable to notice the changes, the advances, the milestones. But, we did. We always do. Ryker, you are this wonderful baby boy. You smile always, you laugh often, you cry little. You have a calm demeanor, a contagious laugh, and a bright smile. You are our completion and our days are better since you were born.

19: Dear Ryker, Today you turn TWO! Everytime I think of you growing up, I start to get teary eyed. You have grown into such a handsome, caring boy. You like making other people laugh and smile. I love how you surprise me daily with something new. The other day, you said your first sentence. "FEET DOWN PAPA!" because his feet were on your toy box. It made everyone laugh but you were looking at everyone so serious! You are a great big brother! You like holding Kole and especially like giving him hugs and kisses. You're birthday party was Dinosaur themed! You LOVED it!! We had dinosaur cupcakes, "goody eggs" and lots of yummy food! I look forward to making new memories with you. I love you so much my baby boy!
