Chase Kimball Nye

 Our baby boy is finally here!!  He is now a week and a half old. 
 He was born on July 25th and weighed 8 lbs 9 oz! 
 This is Chase's great, great, great, great Grandpa Waltons box that he is laying in!  What a special picture!!
 This is the box from the front.  If you look closely you can see his name on the front. 

 I feel like he has a feature of each of our older three.  This pictures shows his pointy little chin like Brookies!

 In the picture above I think he looks especially like Ryder!  You can see, of course, his hair and coloring is just like Kyles, but he seems to look most like Ryder than any one else.  We didn't really realize until after we named him that he and Ryder both have action names.  It's like we were begging for trouble (or should I say "double trouble")! I fear that he and Ryder together are going to be quite the hand full! 
In some of these pictures he doesn't even look like a newborn!!  He's so giant that he only fit (actually squeezed is a better word) in his newborn sized clothes and diapers for only a few days. I'm glad he's thriving, though!  He's such a sweet baby and his older siblings especially can't get enough of him!!!  
We are so happy to have him in our family!

Hello! Haven't seen ya in a while...

I don't remember how to blog!  But I figured I'd put up a few updated pictures for all of my oh-so-faithful friends and family who still occasionally check our blog!  It is my hope to start blogging again but to keep it a secret from Christian.  Then next year I will be able to give him a picture/story journal of all of our day to day happenings!  I'm not going to promise anything, but there is a slight glimmer of hope that I may re-enter the blogging world!

The other day Brooklyn got into the car without shoes without me knowing. She was forced to walk shoeless on the street for a little bit. After a while she looked up at me and said, "Mom, these rocks literally hurt my feet so bad!"


My little Ryder is already 2 and 1/2 months old! He is growing well. He's in the 90th percentile for height (which hasn't happened with my children before), and about 80th percentile for weight. He is the happiest and sweetest little thing ever to come to this earth! He is such a good baby and he treats his mommy well! He has been consistently sleeping through the night since about 8 weeks old. He usually gives me a solid 9-10 hours at night...I know, I don't deserve it! My older kids were so attached to the binki that until they were over a year old I would have to go and pop their binki in once or twice a night. The beautiful thing with Ryder is that he will take a binki to calm him down (or hold him off until I can feed him) but he is not so attached to it that he needs it all the time! He is starting to giggle a little bit and he smiles all day long! He just kind of hangs out as long as I don't let him get too tired or too hungry. I really couldn't have asked for a happier baby!

Little All-Star

Kyle is our little athlete! He is just finishing up his baseball season and a great season it's been! He is in the "machine pitch" league and we were a little nervous to start him out in that league. Usually they start with t-ball, then coach pitch, then go to machine pitch, but we had some friends we wanted to be on a team with so we went for it. He has really done amazing!
After every hit he does a little victory dance (pictured below) at first base, then he always gives us the "thumbs up!" It is the Cutest thing ever!

He is quite the little hitter, but my favorite thing about Kyle is that even when he strikes out (which isn't often...the proud mommy had to add that in) he still has a huge smile on his face! He just lets it roll right off his back!

Here he is playing catcher, but his favorite position is third base. It is just too much fun watching him play!

Best Day Ever

On Memorial Day we borrowed our friends' bikes and trailer and took off on the funnest bike ride! We rode all around the Daybreak lake then around the temple then past Kyles kindergarten. It was a very long ride and up a huge hill, but Kyle did amazing! Brookie and Ryder did great in the trailer, and I'm just glad I didn't have to pull it up that crazy hill! We can't wait to get bikes of our own!

Camera Thief

When I uploaded my pictures I discovered that Kyle got a hold of my camera at some point. Here are three (of about 20) pictures that he took.
