Wednesday Randoms

I love Ellen. and THIS might be the cutest thing I have ever seen.
Seriously. It's 1 minute long.
You want something to make your day- GO watch it.

THIS will make you cry.
ESPECIALLY if you are a mom. (to a little boy)
Just wait for the 2 minute mark. I completely lost it.
Oh my goodness.

Today we waited 21/2 hours, yes you read that right- two and a half hours,
to get Mr. Ryan his first passport for our upcoming trip.
Crazy post office.
He even posed for his mug shot. Well done little one!

My mother-in-law and I were out shopping and she found this.
We got a good little laugh.

Bachelor finale: Cried. Cute cute.
Biggest Loser this week: Cried more. I love Bob and Jillian.

You tell me what my baby wants more!?
Poor baby has lost his trust in me for food.
I was mean, and I tricked him by trying to feed a bite of mixed veggies in between bites of 
"Hawaiian Smoothies Delight"
He was NOT happy with me.
I wouldn't be happy either little one. I don't blame you.

Ryan has 2 favorite parts of the day.
#1. When daddy comes home
and a close #2 is our daily walk.

If you have read my blog for awhile you will remember HERBERT, our life size giraffe in the babe's room. I never kept you updated but Ryan LOVES him.
We pet him daily.

Spring break has been good to us so far,
I am Loving having a husband home for dinner each night.
It's amazing the happiness that comes from the simple things in life.
