For you Ash, since you asked


Five weeks and getting bigger by the day. Ryne still loves to eat about every two hours but is now starting to stretch it out longer at night. Yeah, for more sleep! Last week he hit one his first milestones... he SMILED. First was for his brothers while they sang "Take me out to the ball game" (I know fitting, huh?), second was for me after he had a full tummy one evening, and the third was for my Aunt Dianne. I will try to capture one on camera soon because is really sweet. He is sooooo cute and I am completely obsessed with him.

Flippin' Shaners!



Shaners started his second year of preschool this past week. He was a little apprehensive about going to a new school but he did great. He is growing up so fast and he is developing the funniest sense of humor. Here is an example... So, he was watching me nurse baby Ryne when he posed this question, "Mom, is this booboo lunch (while pointing at each one), and this booboo dinner?" I busted a gut. I think that it is hilarious that Dax and Shane call them 'booboos'. Not only does it sound funny, but when someone gets hurt and says," Ouch, I just got a booboo!", my boys die of laughter.



Are the 80's coming back or what??? When I took the boys shopping for school I was shocked. I could swear that half of the shirts that I bought existed when I was in elementry school. Brad found one that he said the he had. Doesn't Shane look cute though?

Here is Shane's newest trick, we call it "The Slingshot Flip".

What's in a name?

Now that we have had Ryne for a few weeks, we have been able to introduce him to many people and the conversation goes something like this... "Oh, look at that new baby." "Yeah, we just had him a few weeks ago." " What's his name?" "Ryne." "Ryan?" "No, Ryne." "Oh, Ryne..." (It's pronounced Rhine, as in Rhino, but without the O.)



Brad came up with the name from this guy...


This is Ryne Sandberg, hall of famer for the Chicago Cubs. I know, not much of a shocker for Brad to name his boy after a Cubs player. He put a lot of thought into it. Well, as much thought as it takes for a life long cubs fan to come up with. I love it...

One week old...

...and after one full week I still get excited to hold him in the middle of the night. Things are great and all because...
...this guy has been home to help. I love him, and...


...these two goofy boys that really love their baby brother.
