New Year's Resolution...maybe??

Ok so my New Year's resolution is to be more consistent with this blog. I want to make sure that our family and friends can see what is going on in the Ritch life. So far I haven't been doing a great job of that and I am sorry I guess our lives are so busy. At least I have been keeping up with Tobi's weekly photos even though I haven't been posting them. So I guess have some catching up to do. So here is what happened in October. Fortunately I have already posted the weekly pics. Not much happened in October other than Michael's birthday. I decided to take some pictures of Tobi in his diaper wearing nothing but his Daddy's bowtie and sitting next to his Daddy's shoes. So here are a couple of shots:
He is so precious. He did a great job because his aunt KK had come up to watch Tobi one day not only did she get to spend time with Tobi but I loved spending time with her. She taught me how to make a beautiful ribbon wreath. Here we are and my beautiful wreath:
Here are some more pictures of my beautiful boy.

The only other eventful thing that happened during October is I participated in the Pinterest challenge that was thought of by my favorite blog Young House Love. It is where you actually do something something that you pin on your pinterest account. So far I have made a mason jar into a soap dispensor, melted some crayons on a canvas, and made some very delicious recipes. I love pinterest! So here is what I did for the pinterest challenge inspired by this. Here was the wall before.
First I made templates of all of the frames I wanted to hang and taped them to the wall until I found the arrangement we liked. I then marked where the nails would go.
Once we figured out the arrangement I put nails in the wall and hung them. I am really excited abou how it turned out.
Well that is all of our October happenings. Another post tomorrow about November.
Take care,

Tobi's Baptism

On October 16th Tobi got baptized at our church. It was a special time because our families came to join us. I was worried about how Tobi would do in the service but he fell asleep during worship, and if you knew our church that could be hard to believe but he did. We had to actually wake him up to hand him to Rev. Bill to baptize him. He looked a little bewildered but other than that he did great. Here is a couple of photos of the cutie pie and the service.

Those are just a few from our special day and trust me there are a lot more! My Mom is a photo manic! But I love it. Thanks Mom for documenting our special day! We all went to Cracker Barrel after church for some good eats and then went to take more pictures at the park. Here are a couple of my favorites!

More to come stay tuned!

Wow Time Flies

Ok so it is partly my fault for not posting so long and partly because I couldn't find the cord for the camera. But it has been located and we have much to share. I am just going to share the pictures from his weekly photo shoot in this post and will be back for more later.So here it seems is the last month of Tobi's life.

Our little man is getting so big. I can't believe that in two days he will be six months old. There have been a lot of things happening in the Ritch household lately. Pinterest challenges, gotcha days and much more. More to come. Thanks for following.

This past Friday Tobi turned 5 months old. He has started sipping out of a big boy cup and has started doing this:
I can't believe it my baby boy is sitting up on his own..well briefly but it is still awesome. Tobi got baptized this weekend and it was awesome. Our families came and Bill baptized Tobi which was great because he married us. So here is Tobi's 5 month picture. More pictures to come of the baptism and family photos at the park later.
