Such a big boy!

A little recap of the past few weeks around the Avila house!

Here it is - documentation of Ryan's first haircut! Can you tell how happy he is?! Ha!

Now that we've cut off the unruly mess in the back of Ryan's hair, we might try letting it grow out and see if it ends up curly. I love the short cut, it's easier to wash in the bath and I think it will keep Ryan cooler in the summer heat. When someone asks him if he got his hair cut, he replies, "haircut?" and rubs his head! Smart boy indeed!

Ryan had his 15 month immunizations (yes, we're a little behind on that) and he weighed in at 31.4lbs and was 34 inches tall!

We've done some fun things the past few weeks; We took Ryan to the sand drag races out at the race track - he loves trucks and quads but I think his favorite thing to watch were the dune buggies. He sat pretty well for a few good hours watching the races until it was late and past his bedtime...then Mommy had to take him home and get him to bed.

The next day Jake and I escaped town for the day with some friends and drove up to the Good Guys Car Show in Pleasanton. It was a lot of fun, the weather was beautiful and we saw some really nice cars and trucks out on display. Ryan stayed with Grammy and Papa Saturday while we were out of town. Grammy says he was a good little boy and only asked for us a handful of times! Grammy took Ryan out to Papa's work to see the cows, which they said he really enjoyed, and then out to some friends' house to feed the kittens and he liked that as well!

That Sunday the 3 of us were up early and met Grammy and Papa at their house for a boating trip! We took Ryan to Kaweah Lake for the day, for a little fishing and a lot of sun! At first he wasn't so sure about the rocking from the wakes caused by the other boats but by the end of our day he was pretty comfortable, he even sat in Papa's lap and drove the boat!

Next time we go, we hope to actually get in the water and use the tubes instead of deflating them because they were taking up so much room in the front of the boat. Haha!

That about sums up what we've been up to the past few weekends. Our little man is growing like a weed and is such a happy little guy! This weekend I am taking Ryan to cousin Jeremy's wedding. Jake has to work all weekend so he won't be able to come along, but I'm sure fun times will be had by all.

WOW! He is so BIG and HANDSOME! Your Mom made my night when she told me he can say my (our) name(s)! AWW! We miss him so much, wonder if he'll remember us or not? Luckily, we'll be around more, so eventually (hopefully) he will! See you soon!

Cute pictures! He's definitely Papa's Boy!

And yes, Shannah, I can vouch - he definitely says Shannah and Kevin! (he can also say Jeremy, Michael and Aubrey really clearly) We were giving him lots of things to repeat this weekend.

He's so much fun and we miss him already!

Yes, he can definitely say Shannah and Kevin - I'm sure he'll remember you guys, he sees pictures all the time!

Also, after reading through this post again, I couldn't help but giggle at the 3 different pictures of Ryan and Papa and in all 3 pictures Papa is either wearing his hat differently or not wearing 1 at all -- remember, we were only on the lake for a few hours!! Haha!
