Riley "BeAn" Dean Woods...2?

HaPpY BiRtHdAy to my independent, loving, strong willed, smart, hilarious...Now 2 year OlD. Oh my where has the time gone? It seems like not to long ago he needed me more than I had time to give now he acts like he is so big he hardly needs me at all. Except for the basics such as food, shelter, safety. But one things for sure I NEED this little man in my life. He has taught me more about love, patience, and understanding than I ever knew in my 24 years "pre" Riley. Now with a new baby on the way I hope that I am able to still give you all that you need and enjoy all of your milestones on this journey of life that we are living through you. I love you so much Ry Guy...Happy Birthday

One of the milestones in point....he is now climbing out of his CRIB!! I've dreaded this day....So last night I took Suppernannys advice and put him back in bed about oh 20 TIMES (calmly I might add)...then finally we tied his door handle to the bathroom door with a scarf and after about 45 min of crying this is what we found...notice he pulled the door stop off of the wall too.....What a big boy!!!!????

Christmas and Such..

So today I think I trying to find any valid excuse to continue to post pone cleaning my all ways dirty floors...So I'm finally blogging about Christmas and our latest happenings! We had a great Christmas this year, my sister Summer and her two boys Caden 12 and Tristan 5 came to visit for a little over a week! It was great, I really only get to see them about 3 or 4 times a year. She stayed her with us for a few days then we headed to St. George to have Christmas on Christmas Eve with my mom. It took us way too long to get down south with the weather and at one point we had all the kids screaming and my sister looks to me and says "If you want to have 3 kids go right ahead"...We were laughing so hard! Ya this whole kid thing is not easy in fact I'm a little nervous about adding another to the mix although I know, I know it will be FINE! But I just can't help but question my maternal skills and wonder how good I'll be...You know I only get one shot to raise these babies.....that's alot of pressure? Oh, and we found out we are having another BOY! I am happy and my check book is ReAllY HaPpY! So Anyway, we had a ton of parties ( thanks Summers amazing cooking skills) and get togethers with both Aaron's and my families and Riley got totally spoiled( as usual) in fact his birthday is on the 22nd and I can't think of anything that he is possibly in need of! My house is being overrun by ToYs! Oh and the pictures of Aaron cooking.....Well he got a deep Fryer for Christmas and has been using it obsessively favorite was the yummy!
