I love this post Katie and I love your little boy, he is perfect! I love the stats - keep up the good work Sean we are looking forward to our b-ball team in the making!! xo

What an adorable family! He has really grown these past 6 months- can you even believe he was ever that tiny?

I was joking with Rebekah at church..maybe it's time for Sean to have a sibling? ;)

Ryan & Katie said...

Thanks ladies for your comments - it really has gone fast. Jenny, I am still laughing at your last comment there. I mean siblings close together are a blessing (right Rebekah) but I mean . . . come on . . .

How about a new cousin? There is one on the way!

Such a fun age! When they're happy to just sit and play, eat and sleep! He's such a cute little boy.

Such a special record of Sean's first months. You and Ryan are such great parents! We were blessed to be a part of Sean's dedication on Sunday. We love you guys, and feel so thankful for your friendship. It is so fun to watch Sean grow!
