Happy birthday Ryder!!!

Nooooo, I can't believe this day is already here, this was actually the fastest year of my life, our baby boy Ryder is one! This post may be a jumbled mess because I will be bawling through the entire thing as I write it. I never felt that sad about our other babies turning one, but Ryder he's our baby! He literally is everyone's baby! His siblings oogle over him so much and on both sides of our families he is the youngest baby! We feel so lucky to have Ryder he was the perfect addition to our family and he brings smiles everywhere we go. 

I remember when I found out I was pregnant I was so shocked I just mumbled it to andrew and sat on our bed silently..even though Ryder was 100% planned I honestly didn't think I would get pregnant so quickly, I thought maybe it would take a few months, but nope! I started freaking out a little bit, I think every moms feeling with multiple pregnancies is..."I have to do that again", whether it be labour, csection, breastfeeding woes, or sickness, mine was the c section lol. Everything with Ryders pregnancy was pretty "typical", I felt sick for the first trimester then better, I had a bit more aches and pains being my third pregnancy with my pelvis/hips and of course a zillion appointments to make sure he did not come early, but honestly my recovery from my csection was the best one yet and I remember soaking up every minute of him. I still wish I could bottle up those memories, of him kicking inside (definitely my favourite feeling), breastfeeding, cuddling, honestly everything about it!! I also loved seeing how special Ryder was to our older kids, and of course to Andrew as well. Sweet Ryder has made our family much warmer with his special presence. I know theres still a million amazing lovely memories to come just saying goodbye to babyhood is hard, I know how crazy toddlers can be haha but I welcome every minute, just thank you Ryder for the best past year, we love love love love you!!!! Happy birthday babycakes, now montage of my favourite Ryder pictures!!

 Right after sweet Ryder was born, he was the loudest baby ever after he came out he seriously screamed so much I was wondering if he was ok, the doctors and nurses were even laughing by how loud he was, which was ironic since our entire hospital stay he didn't make a peep.
