expecting ryder.

my friend, skinner, is expecting her first baby in november. i am over the moon excited for her and her husband. let me tell you a bit about her - when i first met her, mr. h told me not to worry if she wasn't nice to me. he said that she wasn't always accepting of new "friends" into the circle. ummm. do you know what that really sounds like to a female? she is mean! beware! everyone likes her but she is mean! well, let me be the first to tell you that this wasn't the case. at all. she was nice and friendly. actually, we hit it off right from the start. you've heard me talk about her in some of my previous running posts. we also have a few other things in common. like our first name! and to our friends,  our maiden name is our nickname and what we are referred to as on a daily basis - neither of us mind. we also share a love for cookie dough and one night, after some wine, i deemed her my soul mate and haven't looked back since.

as i've said, we are she is expecting her first baby towards the end of the year. i cannot wait! and let me tell you why. they are having a BOY! now, i know i'm bias and i love all the little girls that my friends have had recently but finally! james will have a best friend to play in the dirt and be able to do manly things together like fish and camp. what really makes this special is that skinner's husband is one of mr. h's oldest friends. they grew up in close proximity and shared the same passion for bicycles, 4-wheelers and skateboards. i just know that james and ryder will be the same. our husbands already have big plans for these their little men. i'm afraid that their plans are the kind that will leave me fearful and involved motorized toys and skateboards with large hills. regardless, i know that they will be taken care of and will make priceless memories together.

i'm getting teary eyed just thinking about how are families are going to grow together from this point forward.

this past weekend, i finally got to take pictures of ryder. meet this sweet boy.

okay, okay. this was kind of a tease but baby ryder has been baking for 19 weeks. he's almost half way done! and i cannot wait!!
