Happy Birthday Rylan!

One year ago today, this sweet little boy entered our lives:

And this is Rylan today:

We had his pictures taken this morning.
You know, since he's now one and has NEVER been to a photographer before.
(Hello fourth child!) At least I have taken pictures and attempted to record his life via blog. When Mason was a baby I took him in to have his pictures taken every month, religiously. Funny how that happens, even though I swore to myself that I would not let it be that way.

Rylan just started walking this week. It's so cute. He takes tiny little cautious steps. He also busted out his first tooth a couple of days ago. It's been a big week for him!

Here's a little video of his walking:

We had a little cake and a couple of presents for him to open. Rylan is officially our happiest child having a first birthday. Mason, Ellorie, and Averie were all ridiculously grumpy. Mason was scared of his presents, Ellorie was scared of the balloons, Averie was scared of the cake. There was lots and lots of crying and grumpy faces. Not Rylan. He was in a great mood today. He's such a good-natured boy. Also, he loves cake.

He's also sort of figured out the whole present-unwrapping thing. He had a lot of helpers though.
He's such a happy, fun boy. We love you Rylan! Happy Birthday!!!
