I wanted to blog and say that everything is going great, Ryan goes back to work next week at the beginning of August and I get to stay home a little more starting in August. It has been great having Ryan home all day, he has been watching Lil' Ryan while I go to work. He tells me that it has been an eye opener into my life and that he appreciates what I do. I tell him the same thing I couldn't imagine going to work everyday and leaving Lil' Ryan. He is too much fun to be around, I know that sacrifices that he makes for the baby and I every day and I love him so much for that. He is a great husband and a great father I just want him to know that I love him for all that he dose.

While Ryan has been home we have been able to have a little fun, we have been swimming a ton the little one loves the water and wants to be on his own ( out of the tube). I'm glad that we've been able to use Bev's pool, it has been a couple of weeks since we went last, only because of the over cast weather, oh and Lil' Ryan not feeling to well. We also were able to get out of town, we went up to Utah for a weekend, it was great just to get out of town and spend time with family. We had fun floating down the Provo River with the family. We can't wait to go back, maybe sometime before it gets to cold we will make it back there.

It's has been a great summer and I hope that the rest of the year is just the same. Ryan and I are also trying to make plans to go to Chile this Christmas, well we hope that we can make it back before we have to buy Lil' Ryan a plane ticket. That is all that we have planed for now, I will let you know if we make it there or not.

I tried to put pictures in the note but it wouldn't let me, sorry

Ryan's 1

Wow, it has been a year all ready, I can't believe how time flies when you have a kid. It seems like yesterday we were bringing him home from the hospital and now we are having his first birthday party. I love him, I love having him here in our family and that he choose me to be his mom. He is a bright, fun loving, curious little boy. Now that he can crawl he is into everything, he love to climb on the stairs, I just know that he will be walking soon, I'm going to love and hate that. I will love it because I won't have to hold in a store him anymore, but hate it because now he can run away from me. I'm excited for any and everything that he will learn to do.

I'm so grateful that I am able to be his mom, he is such a blessing in my life. I want to thank everyone that has helped us though this year.


Lil' Ryan is 1

Tuesday, June 2, 2009


Last night Ryan and I were in giving tough love to Lil' Ryan and letting him cry himself to sleep. about 5-10 minutes into tough love we here a big thump coming from his room. So we go and see what happen and we found Lil' Ryan crawling towards us. I can't believe that he got out. Now I can't keep him in anywhere. Lots of fun for us!

The big escape

Today while I was cleaning, Lil Ryan decide to make his way out the doggy door. He has always like to play over by there, but has never gone out except for today I guess he just wanted to be outside with the dogs. It made me smile.

I swear he says "I like it" let me know if you hear it too.

Easter Fun

Troxell fun

Hello everyone, WOW!!! it has been a long time since my last blog. I'm going to try to be better at it now that I have my new computer, it should be easier. What has been going on with us? Well since February Lil' Ryan has learned a lot of new things, he now knows how to crawl, climb, he loves the stairs I can put him in the middle of the room and two seconds later he is 5 steps up. Now our baby gate works two ways one it keeps the dogs out of the front room and second it blocks Lil' Ryan from the stairs. He has also figured out how to clap it is so cool to see him try to do it. A funny story about him learning how to clap is the day he finally clapped we were going to a funeral of a friend and as we are standing up for the family to come in, Lil' Ryan is clapping. Two ladies turned around and smiled, I said "I'm sorry he just learned how to do it."

Lil' Ryan has also learned how stand up to the couch and walk a long it. He loves to do anything that evolves him going somewhere. He loves to be on the move, which keeps me on my toes. I feel like he is going to have a lot of bump and bruises. If anyone can give me advice on active kids let me know.
We had a great Easter we weren't able to go to the Nelson Family Reunion this year and missed seeing everyone, I hope that everyone is well and had a great Easter. We went to Ryan's Aunt house and had a Easter hut. It was fun Lil' Ryan enjoyed throwing the eggs once we found them. He also loves to throw anything he can get his hand on its great. This picture is Li'l Ryan looking for his red eggs that he was suppose to find. Thanks Aunt Charlotte for the Fun Easter Hut.

I'm so excited for summer to come, my goals this year is to go to the pool at least 3 times if not more a week, if anyone would like to join me let me know and I would love to have . I want to get a tan and I am also so excited to see what Lil' Ryan thinks of the pool. He loves to take baths so I think that he will just love the pool. I'm so glad that I am a mother it is the greatest thing to be, I only wish that I didn't have to work so I could be just a mom and a wife. My second goal is that I want to make a patch quilt I don't know how but I want to learn how, so if anyone knows how and can help me get started I would love that.

I could talk about Lil' Ryan all day but know I will talk about Big Ryan, He is still working for the school district. He love when he is off because he gets to spend time with his son, during Spring break Lil' Ryan got to spend the whole week with his Dad and know won't say Mommy anymore. Now all he says is "da da" and anytime you ask him to say "ma ma" he just looks at you and says "da da". It make Ryan happy to here him say that. One of the things Lil' Ryan likes to do with is dad is play video games with him. He can watch his dad play for hours. It's really cute to see them there together. Ryan also got a Salt Water fish tank, he love it and was excited to get it and put it together. He has two clown fish in it right now and also one emerald crab. They are cool to watch. I'm glad that Ryan finally got his tank.

I guess I will catch you up on myself, I have started to walk in the mornings it makes me feel a lot better, I get up earlier and I get a lot more stuff done. I only hope that I can keep it up. It has been a week tomorrow, I'll let you know in a couple weeks if it has done any good.

I hope that everyone is doing well and I hope that you all have a great summer.

What's New?

Well it has been a long time since I have blogged. This is what has been going on with the Troxell's. Lilttle Ryan is now 8 months old, it is so amazing how much he has grown in this short of time but he has learned so much. He doesn't craw yet, but he scoots all over the place, he likes the dogs food bowls and water bowl and he just found out where the doggie door is he hasn't gone out it yet but that won't take him too long to figure that out. Little Ryan is so much fun to have around, any mothers out there know that, he has brought so much love into our little family. 

Ryan is still working all the time which is good but Little Ryan and I miss him when he is working. He enjoys his job and can't wait to come home and see us. Ryan is now on Facebook, he didn't do it by himself he had a little help from me, but now he can talk to friends he hasn't talk to in a long time.

I  am still work at Centennial Hill Orthodontics, it's great because I get to bring Little Ryan with me, that is why he is a Mama's boy. That is about it I don't do much just work and Little Ryan he is now my life and I love that.

One thing that we did recently is that we took Blayne to the MTC, it was a good trip but very short. We are going to miss Blayne and we pray for him every day.

I hope that everyone is doing great, can't wait to read all of your blogs.
